Editorial Reviews

2010 collection from the legendary composter and conductor. Peter Gunn was an American private eye television series which aired on the NBC and later ABC television networks from 1958 to 1961. The show's creator (and also writer and director on occasion) was Blake Edwards. A total of 114 thirty-minute episodes were produced. The series is remembered mostly for its music, especially The Peter Gunn Theme, which won an Emmy Award and two Grammys for Henry Mancini and has become a Jazz-Rock standard. 24 tracks. Xtra.

If you're like me, you fell in love with the original music conducted by Mancini with all it's nuance - the specific solos and particular orchestration - THIS IS NOT THAT SOUNDTRACK and you will be disappointed. Since no musicians are credited here, I'm not sure what this is. The scores were closely followed, but solos are different, and some selections are played faster than the original cuts. Generally, the same instruments were used, but this is some kind of remake. The sound quality varies from one track to another. The trumpet sections on some cuts are almost unlistenable they are so shrill. Get the originals, not this thing.

What you have here is two different "Peter Gunn" soundtracks. Whether they were two mixes of the same recording, I don't know, but the instruments are in different places in the stereo mix and some instruments are absent altogether. The reason why you'd want both will be apparent when you listen to disc 2, which has the alternative mix of "Peter Gunn." You'll be able to hear, unlike the first track, George Roberts (the Bass Trombonist) in all his glory. He's growling and barking out low notes at the beginning of the song and I love it. However, while I like Disc 2 for the title track, I like "Dreamsville" on the first disc because you can hear George better in that mix. I think the inclusion of covers of "Peter Gunn" by others is superfluous. If you love the soundtrack, by all means, buy this collection, but if you're not that picky, then buy the original or the alternate version, or, barring that, pick and choose the mixes you like best to make your your "best of" Gunn from this collection.

Anyone who enjoyed the orginal version of the landmark soundtrack will be delighted when they hear this expanded version. What makes a Mancini soundtrack likable, especially this one, is that it's good music apart from the visual. That isn't often the case with soundtracks. (We usually buy them because we liked the film.) We're not getting "Birth Of the Cool" or "Milestones," but jazz that's highly listenable yet written and improvised so not to overwhelm the drama. It's moody and arty but subtle and with taste; like Ellington's score for "Anatomy Of A Murder." Quite an accomplishment and as we know, it set the bar for future TV music. Pete Condoli told me many years ago that he enjoyed the work on Peter Gunn which meant that the musicians considered it more than a play and deposit the paycheck gig.

The liner notes are in error regarding disc 1. Tracks 1-12 are from Music From Peter Gunn, and tracks 13-24 are from More Music From Peter Gunn, the order being the same as on the original LP's. The notes regarding disc 2 I have to take at face value, as I do not have those LP's: Tracks 1-10 from Peter Gunn by Ted Nash and Maxwell Davis, tracks 11-21 from More Peter Gunn by Pete Candoli and tracks 22-25 are variations of the title theme by Duane Eddy, King Curtis, Mundell Lowe and Buddy Morrow.

I wouldn't call this "complete", as the 2nd disc could have been the Mancini soundtrack to the 1967 Gunn film instead.

The first disc is the perfect rendition of the original LP I had as a teenager. Been trying to find it for years. Only reason for only 4 stars Is second disc in one I've heard before which in my opinion corrupts the beauty of the first disc's renditions which were sacred to me. They are not terrible, just take away from my memories...personal, I guess.

I watched Peter Gunn on TV when I was in college from 1957 to 1961. I don't remember the exact years that the show aired, but it was greatly enhanced by theme music by Henry Mancini. I loved that music and still do. This is a 2 CD set. The first CD is supposed to be actual music from the series, and that's what it sounded like to me after all these years. The second CD sounds like riffs on the original score and also sounds wonderful. I recommend this highly. It is jazz at its best and proves Henry Mancini is a genius. The musicians also are outstanding.

Sonically speaking, this is indeed the 'complete' Peter Gunn - great, original music, for a classic, so very cool show; that certainly packed quite a bit into those 30 minutes. The music fits this iconic television series perfectly, and vice-versa. One would be hard pressed to find a better CD representation of that timeless, jazzy, Gunn sound, and there is 2 & 1/2+ hours of it, which should certainly satisfy any craving - bon appetite!

This two disc set is a reminder of how great Mancini was. His score for this ground breaking TV show is one of the best charts for big band jazz ever, on a par with Neal Hefty. Disc One contains the original soundtrack recordings. I was suspicious at first because these are in stereo, but I did some research and found there was a stereo release in 1959. The original release was in 1956 and was in mono. Apparently the master tapes were in stereo, but stereo had not yet been introduced to the public.

Disc Two is a later recording done by other musicians but using the original arrangements. The solos are similar but not copies. Unfortunately there is not a personnel list on either. Disc One had some of the greatest Southern California players, that's for sure. The personnel list on Disc Two is probably different but excellent. Disc Two also has four alternative versions of the main theme by Duane Eddy, King Curits, Mundell Low, and Buddy Morrow.

If you like melodic, harmonic, swinging jazz, all done in good taste, this is for you. Note: the discs come from the U.K. and the cover art are does not match the original.
