This image is a general representation of the item and the actual product may differ slightly in terms of color shading, logo placement, borders, or other small details. Used items may have various cosmetic differences as well.
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.

Henry Mancini balances things out between the big screen of the cinema and the little screen of the TV – both showcases for his famous work over the years!

Very goofy stuff! The album is one of the maddest bachelor pad albums to come out on RCA during the late 50s – and it features a nutty set of tunes released in conjunction with Mad Magazine, whose Norman Mingo contributed a fantastic cover painting of Alfred E Neuman! Instrumentation is ... LP, Vinyl record album
An unusual concert performance from Henry Mancini – one that features the maestro leading a full orchestra, but with a really groovy feel overall! Each track is relatively long, and based around a set of smaller songs wrapped up in a medley – almost mini-symphonies in pop music, ... LP, Vinyl record album
A collaboration with poet John Laws – a project that almost recalls some of the Rod McKuen/Anita Kerr projects of the late 60s, but which has a deeper, more sophisticated Mancini feel! Laws reads his own words, but does so in a subtle, expressive way – often just doing a short passage ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dear Heart And Other Songs About Love brings out the purely sentimental side, with Mancini's symphonic jazz stylings taking on some of the better known period romantic pop numbers. Tracks include "Dear Heart", "Girl From Ipanema", "Mr. Lucky", "Soldier In The ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of Les Baxter's best for Capitol! Forget the "teen" in the title, because this is a super-hip album filled with great percussion tracks. More than a few of the numbers have a Latiny groove – mixing strong exotica scoring with rawer percussion than usual, and some occasional ... LP, Vinyl record album
