Mancini '67

LP (Item 3436) RCA, 1967 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


Henry Mancini in 1967 – a time when he was definitely at the height of his powers, as you'll hear on this sweet set of big band recordings! The format here is much more jazz-based than some of Hank's soundtracks from the time – played with a great group of west coast musicians who include Pete Candoli and Jack Sheldon on trumpets; Ronny Lang, Plas Johnson, Harry Klee, and Ted Nash on reeds; Jimmy Rowles on piano, Bob Bain on guitar, and Larry Bunker on vibes – all great players who really have a way of coming together beautifully, then stepping out to bring their own voices strongly to the tunes. And although there's a few soundtrack tunes on the set, most of the compositions are jazz numbers – not penned by Mancini, but definitely given his touch in the arrangements for the date. Titles include "Stockhom Sweetnin", "Tijuana Taxi", "Round Midnight", "The Cat", "Stolen Sweets", "The Shadow Of Your Smile", and the great fuzz guitar sounds of "Turtles".

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Lovely late nite Mancini!

Better than it sounds – as this one, like the initial Jungle Drums album, is low on the drums, and much more in the mode of Gould's usual light classic work.
