Mancini '67

LP (Item 3436) RCA, 1967 — Condition: Very Good

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".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono pressing with deep groove. Cover has splitting on the spine and light wear.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.
