A pretty wild album from Henry Mancini – one that's a lot better than the title might make it sound! The set's made up of a lot of late 60s/early 70s film themes – but Mancini's approach to them is nothing short of mad – mixing in strange arrangements, complicated rhythms, and weird touches that include harmonica, tinkling piano, and some dreamy chorus vocals! The whole thing's got a complicated approach to sound that's totally great – and which moves the music way past simple cover versions of hit film themes at the time. Titles include "Theme For Three", "Borsalino", "Loss Of Love", "Thank You Very Much", "MASH", "Love Story", and "The Harmonica Man". (Orange label pressing.)  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

A very very weird version of "Hair", rewritten as a mass, and performed in a church by the original cast, plus a priest, organist, and everything else that you might throw in if you were going to do it this way.
