Dutton Vocalion has just announced another Mancini goodie; the premier CD re-issues of "The Mancini Generation" and "Hangin' Out":

If I remember correctly all of Mancini's RCA albums have now been re-issued in one form or another (apart from one live album). It's great to see this finally happen. I wonder if we will get more Mancini re-issues from Dutton...

OK, I was a bit hasty - also missing are: two albums with Artie Kane and "Country Gentleman" frown

These Dutton Vocalion releases are consistently excellent. With 2 LP programs on 1 CD, they're a bargain. Thanks, shicorp.

I'm struggling to decide on this new release. Whilst I love much of Mr. Mancini's output, these easy-listening albums can be hit and miss.

His album A Warm Shade of Ivory is superb! Six Hours Past Sunset is pretty good, too. I'm not so fond of Theme from 'Z' ... . And, I heard the album The Mancini Generation many years ago - a poor library copy with much surface noise! - and was not impressed. But my tastes have broadened over thirty years and today - in clear CD sound - who knows.

The track listing for the album Hangin' Out - with those iconic themes from the 1970s: Love Theme and TSOP - are most off-putting. Still, I'd probably enjoy some of the other tracks.

So: a possible purchase ...

Although it's not an album, Mancini's "Man Of The World" theme was never released in the US.
It only appeared on an RCA UK 45.

"The Mancini Generation" was the syndicated musical variety show hosted by Mancini for one season ('72-73), and featured musical guests and sometimes had shows done on location.

Many thanks for the info:

A truly lovely theme. A shame that it's not available on CD - as are many other single titles by Mancini. Unfortunately, a serious re-issue project of his single titles could only be carried out by Sony Music in the US, since only they would own the tapes. Unfortunately, I see no interest there. We only get compilations with the same stuff over and over again. Virtually all Mancini re-issues come from local tape copies all over the worldfrown
