Henry Mancini may well have been the geatest composer -- popular or classical -- of the 20th century. Although this album is entitled Henry Mancini's Greatest Hits and does indeed contain an excellent sampling of his hit songs, no single CD can contain all of Mancini's greatest hits. If you want all of the best of Mancini you have to get several CDs. Nevertheless, this CD is a very good place to start. Highly recommended.

Format: Audio CD
Henry Mancini gave us so much of our consciousness of the 1960s and 1970s, and yet was "out" almost as soon as he was "in."

His work became synonymous with much-despised "elevator music" in the later 1960s. This stereotype (or monotype, for his earliest works) can mislead.

For example, "Lujon" [not in this collection] was used in a movie just last year to exemplify mystery and an exotic atmosphere.

Mancini dies way too young. While some would argue that he'd become a self-parody, his innate gifts compromised by relentless commercialization, you cannot take away his lasting gift to our culture. He was an original, and he captured an essence of our collective experience.

He's here in this collection, waiting round the bend, my Huckleberry friend.

Mancini is a quirky genius. Growing up on John Williams Wagner-esque movie scores, Mancini's scores seem rather odd. They have a rumba night club feel-a mixture of "The Ventures" and "Pet Sounds"-unlike the energetic and overwhelming majesty of Star Wars or Indiana Jones. But that is the appeal of Mancini-his are subtle anti-themes.
It would have been helpful to have the tapes digitally re-mastered. They sound thick and stuffy, which blunts the music's edge. Mancini's daughter has rerecorded some of these hits, with some other additions, and the sound is clean (ASIN: B0001HAIFO). However, this disc has the original tunes as Mancini envisioned them.

This CD is all one needs to understand why this dude is the master when it comes to composing. Having been introduced to this great human being at an early age, my fascination for his work is still a vital part of my being. This CD is just what I have always wanted. It has all the classics, along with some older gems I never knew existed. I love it so much, that I am going to send my mama back home one. She was, is and always will be perhaps his GREATEST FAN ever. If you just can't live without Mancini's music, then this CD is for you. Enjoy, enjoy,

enjoy!!

Not a perfect sample of Mancicni's rich and award filled musical career, but probably as much as you could get on one CD. Here and there I would've included different cuts, but you can't please all the fans all the time.

I like him. If you do not already own his full scores to several films and a handful of television series, this is a great sampler because you get some jazz, some romance, some sweeping themes and some vocal treatments. His work for "Peter Gunn" and "Breakfast at Tiffany's" and "Pink Panther" were big sellers back in the day, and well-composed, well-played music is a comfort forever.

A great trip down memory lane. The selections sound just like I remember them from the movies and the radio. Enjoy

This is a great addition to our music collection. Our family really loves Mancini and this is the perfect mix of music we know, along with a few we hadn't heard before.
