LP, Vinyl record album

(€1.64 || £1.46 || ¥221) (approx.)

Kind of nutty stuff from this weird Blake Edwards film that starred James Coburn and Dick Shawn. The material's not as jazz-based as some of Mancini's other scores, but it does have a delightfully nutty sound that's in keeping with the kind of mad 60s film it was written for. The postwar memory of the film situates it in Italy, so a fair number of the melodies have slight Italian overtones – including "Sicily Forever", "Gina", "Wine and Women", and "Festa!".

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Thief Who Came To Dinner
Warner, 1973. Very Good
A keyboard classic from Henry Mancini – and one of his greatest soundtracks ever!

Charade
RCA, 1963. Good+
One of the grooviest Henry Mancini soundtracks of the 60s – a wonderful blend of jazzy themes and action moments, and a record that's possibly better-remembered than the film for which it was recorded!

Mr Lucky Goes Latin
RCA, 1961. Very Good

Here, Mancini redoes that music with a west ... LP, Vinyl record album
Breakfast At Tiffany's
RCA, 1961. Very Good+
An enduring Mancini classic! And although it's probably best remembered for the sleepy theme "Moon River", the score's actually got some pretty fantastic groovy numbers with a very different feel.

Experiment In Terror
RCA, 1962. Very Good+
A killer soundtrack from Henry Mancini – a record that's got both the terror promised in the title, and some sweeter moments that are pure Mancini all the way!

Bonanza – Ponderosa Party Time
RCA, 1962. Very Good
A pretty darn cool record if you dig the TV show – as Greene and crew get together, in character, to perform a number of songs in a live "hootenanny" setting! The style of the tracks is more folksy than country – and there's a heck of a log of dialogue on the record. Titles ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sacco E Vanzetti
RCA, 1971. Sealed
An unusual period score by Ennio Morricone – and a record that turned out to be one of his most successful of the 70s!
