The Sounds & Voices Of Henry Mancini
Sunset - A Product Of Liberty Records
This is a later attempt by Mancini to cover all of the great "exotica" period songs. The vibe of this album is different from his earlier (exotica or late 50s early 60s period) work. The sound, like the sample I've posted above, is soft, slow and quiet. But like the majority of Mancini's work, he creates an approach/sound and makes an excellent record featuring inventive arrangements. Good stuff!
The Breeze And I
The Whispering Sea
Driftwood And Dreams
Moon Of Manakoora
Marvelous Movie Themes
Enoch Light & The Light Brigade
Project 3 Total Sound PR 5013 SD
Gatefold or double fold jacket with the standard Light copy on the inside.
This record features typical outstanding Light engineering. Light did the arrangements and produced the album. The approach, however, is conservative in comparison to many of the Light albums I have collected. For A Few Dollars More and In The Heat Of The Night manage to be interesting but don't expect that vibe on any of the remaining tracks.
Beautiful Hair Breck
Presents The New Sound America Loves Best
RCA Victor SP-33-91
From the January 25, 1960 Billboard: A joint promotion between RCA Victor and Breck, manufacturer of hair shampoo, etc., has resulted in a 38 per cent increase in sales for Breck hair preparations, according to the latter. Promotion offered purchasers of Breck products an RCA Victor LP, containing sides of Harry Belafonte, Perez Prado, Mario Lanza, etc., for $1 (monaural) or $1.25 (Stereo). Victor and Breck publicized the promotion via cross advertising in magazines and on TV shows. Promotion was the largest-scaled premium promotion the company has ever undertaken.

This LP pretty straight forward pop/traditional Hawaiian. Tahitian Drums is an unique track on the record.
The tracks list on the side one were reorder so that they do not match the list printed on the back cover.
