Vocalion 2CDLK4636 [68:09 & 75:01]
It is good to welcome back to these pages the Vocalion label, which has just released four reissues from the golden age of Easy Listening. The lead reissue is of two 2-on-1 CDs, originally RCA, from a master light music maker, Henry "Hank" Mancini (1924-94). In a career spanning 40 years as composer, arranger and conductor he won four Oscars, one Golden Globe and twenty Grammys – also a posthumous Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award – setting an all-time record for a non-classical artist.
