One of the unlikely albums that was in heavy rotation during my last year of college was the used CD I found of Henry Mancini's "Music from Peter Gunn," a truly fantastic artifact of its time. It's got a looser feel than a lot of Mancini's later arrangements, a really compelling blend of jazz and big band.
My enduring memory of this album during that time was a summer night that I was working as a gopher for a local production company, helping tear down after a trade show at the city convention center... it was after midnight by the time we finished, and I was driving through the completely deserted city downtown as 'Dreamsville' played, all the streets empty and storefronts darkened. There could not have been a more perfect soundtrack for the moment. https://open.spotify.com/track/3GKtPUsvH8Q3ecj65M3hfO #nowplaying #tootradio #henrymancini #petergunn
@thermous heh. I just listened to another track credited to Henry Mancini due to a Peter Gunn sample...... Shaggy’s O Carolina. A recent $0.50 vinyl purchase :-) now I need to listen to Dreamsville!
