Music From Mr Lucky

LP (Item 9407) RCA, 1959 — Condition: Very Good
$3.99 ...

LP

(€3.53 || £3.05 || ¥402) (approx.)

One of the greatest soundtracks ever from the early years of Henry Mancini – a hip jazzy TV score that we've loved for years! The jazzy theme to "Mr Lucky" is reason enough to buy this album – as it's got these wonderful warm washes of sound, interlayed in a way that makes you wish the track went on and on and on again – but Mancini brilliantly follows that gem up with a host of wonderful other tunes – cool numbers that move past even the familiar crime jazz that Hank had given us on Peter Gunn, into a level of instrumental sophistication that set a whole new tone for the 60s generation to come. Other tunes include "Lightly Latin", "Tipsy", "One Eyed Cat", "Chime Time", and "March Of The Cue Balls", a Mancini classic if there ever was one! (Black label stereo pressing with deep groove. Cover has a sticker spot.)  © 1996-2016, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Thief Who Came To Dinner
Warner, 1973. Very Good
A keyboard classic from Henry Mancini – and one of his greatest soundtracks ever! The album's far far different than most of Mancini's other work – a stripped-down, slow-funk batch of tracks that mix together keyboards and organ, riffing out over rhythm and strings, in a mode that ...

Experiment In Terror

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!

Peter Gunn
RCA, 1959. Very Good
A classic! This is the record that made Mancini's career, and forever transformed the face of crime and jazz. The record's a stunning batch of instrumentals, played by a crack group of west coast players who also performed regularly in the TV show. Titles include the classic "Peter ... LP, Vinyl record album

One of Nino Rota's best scores for Fellini!

Wonderful stuff all around – with loads ... LP, Vinyl record album

A groovy soundtrack to a film we'd love to see – an obscure thriller that starred Henry Fonda and Yul Brynner!

Stanley Wilson conducted the music to this 50s cop show called M-Squad, but the music was composed by him, Count Basie, and Benny Carter.

Il Ladrone
RCA (Italy), 1979. Near Mint-
A surprisingly delicate late 70s score from Ennio Morricone – oddly auspicious, given that it's for a biblical era comedy – 1979's Il Ladrone!
