Percussion – Playful And Pretty

LP (Item 2428) RCA, 1965 — Condition: Near Mint-

Rosengarden & Kraus deliver a bundle of "spruced-up mood music", with a whole bunch of wacky percussion instruments, and a calliope lurking in the background! Titles include "Goofus", "Chloe", "For Want Of A Star", and "Mr Ghost Goes To Town". Plus, the cover's got a great picture of two models clanging a pair of cymbals together, in a very stupid way!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Deep groove pressing. Cover has some light stains.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Henry Mancini

Mancini Touch
RCA, 1959. Very Good+
Delightful instrumentals – not as jazzy as Mancini's regular soundtrack work, but still pretty nice! The tracks are more in an easy instrumental vein – but given Hank's style, they're still pretty cool, especially as they feature work by west coast jazzmen like Shelly Manne, Victor ...

Henry Mancini

Blues & The Beat
RCA, 1960. Very Good
This is a pretty jazzy record compared to the usual Mancini soundtrack-type stuff. It's mostly mellow the whole way through and has some very nice moments due to the quality of the playing. His orchestra includes such folks as Pete Condoli on trumpet, Dick Nash on trombone, Johnny Williams on piano ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1961. Very Good
One of the die-cut cover "Stereo Action" series, with a variety of film themes given a wild batchelor pad twist. Tracks include "Colonel Bogey", "Tara's Theme", "The High & The Mighty", and "Song Of The Barefoot Contessa". Not too way out, but ... LP, Vinyl record album

On The Rocks
RCA, 1959. Very Good
Very cool work from Bob Thompson – a mood music maestro who worked for RCA in the same scene as Esquivel! This set's got Bob's trademark groovy blend of orchestrations and voices – and titles include "On The Rocks", "Happy Talk", "Always", "The Little ... LP, Vinyl record album

Combo!
RCA, 1961. Near Mint-
A combo session with more than enough excitement to warrant the exclamation point in the title – one of Henry Mancini's jazziest records ever, and a date that's filled with some great west coast players! The sound here is a hip extrapolation of the Mancini groove heard on crime jazz ... LP, Vinyl record album

Henry Mancini

Uniquely Mancini
RCA, 1963. Very Good
Uniquely Mancini work from the great Henry – a sweet set of early 60s work for RCA, done with a harder jazz style than some of his other work of the time! Mancini's group is filled with west coast jazzmen – working under tight leadership to craft some tracks with a bold, sort of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Warren Barker Is In
Warner, 1959. Very Good+
Hip groovy loungey sounds from the guy who arranged and conducted the music to 77 Sunset Strip! Tracks have goofy names like "Cappucino", "Cafe Expresso", and "Hit The Road to Dreamland" – and the album's got a beatnik jazz feel that's very nice! LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1952. Very Good
A masterpiece of exotica! Ritual Of The Savage is one of those must-have albums from the 50s – a super-huge record upon its initial release, and an album that pushed the genre of exotica far further than most others at the time! Before this record, most attempts at exotica were simple ... LP, Vinyl record album
Liberty, 1957. Very Good+
The first-ever album from Henry Mancini – and a wonderfully spooky set! The style here is quite different than most of Hank's better-known film work and instrumental hits – as the record is very moody and laidback – cut with a slow-moving, dreamy sort of darkness that's really ...
