• Henry MANCINI - Moon River - The Singles Collection, 1956-1962

One of the most versatile talents in contemporary 20th century music, Henry Mancini was arguably America's greatest composer, conductor and arranger.

Although he is nowadays perhaps best remembered for big-selling LPs of movie and TV scores, he also enjoyed a parallel series of hit singles, only some of which were spun off his albums.

This 30-track compilation is drawn from his singles releases between 1956-62 and includes his hits 'Mr Lucky', 'High Time', 'Theme From The Great Imposter', 'Moon River', 'Experiment In Terror', 'Theme From Hatari' and 'Days Of Wine And Roses'.

Also included are Mancini's original, career defining recordings of tunes like 'Tana's Theme' (from "Touch of Evil"), 'The Peter Gunn Theme', and 'Breakfast At Tiffany's'.

Several of his early singles, notably 'Cha Cha Cha For Gia' (from "Four Girls In Town") and 'Big Band Rock And Roll' b/w 'Hot Rod' (from "Rock Pretty Baby") are unavailable elsewhere on CD.
