4.0 out of 5 stars 5-Star music, but. get the RCA Living Stereo Cds instead., 16 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Peter Gunn (Audio CD)
This is a review for the Peter Gunn/ More Peter Gunn cd distributed by the Hot Record Society. This is the cd with the white half-border and the small yellow square in the top left-hand corner on the front cover.

The albums are here obviously "needle-drops" taken from Lp records instead of the master tapes. I compared the sound of this cd to the "Peter Gunn" cd found in the 5-disc Henry Mancini box set and the Hot Disc Society product is definitely inferior to the RCA release in that it lacks the vibrancy of a remaster taken from the original source material. This cd sounds okay but when compared to the Living Stereo cd it seems to sound a little "flatter". One gets used to the sound soon enough because the music is sublime, and the only giveaway that these are actually needle-drops is the very slight crackling of surface scratches heard in "Walking Bass".

The price is right but I would recommend you spend the extra sheckles and buy the 5-cd Mancini box set which contains a properly remastered version of the "Peter Gun" album plus 4 bonus tracks from "More Music.." and whole lot of other KOOL stuff. Hey, you can never have enough Mancini on the cd shelf...!!
