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