Return Of The Pink Panther

LP (Item 26786) RCA, 1975 — Condition: Near Mint-

A surprisingly groovy record – and one that's very different from the original Pink Panther soundtrack! This one's got much more of a 70s electric feel – and show's Henry Mancini's growth in this format, along the lines of his Cop Show Themes album, or his excellent Thief Who Came To Dinner soundtrack! There's a lot of Fender Rhodes on the record – especially on the tracks "The Orange Float", "Disco", "Navel Maneuver", and the slyly funky "Here's Looking At You Kid". There's also an excellent remake of the original Pink Panther theme – much better than the original, with a nice jazzy chase quality!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has splitting on the top seam and spine.)

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.
