The Pink Panther
United Artists Records
Scraping the bottom of the barrel today? Heck no! Compilation albums can be a lot of fun! OK, the covers can be dull as dishwater, but the LPs can feature tunes from albums that you may not think to collect. And if the producer does his/her job of choosing material wisely... the album can play through and hold your interest. In this case, the album is a collection of 60s space age groove.
There are a number of original sound track themes, like Johnny Cool, From Russia With Love and It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World. All these tunes are out there as MP3 purchase/downloads. But, apparently UA couldn't get the rights to the Mancini's Pink Panther, so they included a fun cover by an obscure studio orchestra.
