The Best Of Peter Gunn - Ray Ellis

The Best Of Peter Gunn
Composed By Henry Mancini
Ray Ellis And His Orchestra
MGM Records E3813

This is a fab Peter Gunn covers album. It's risky to take on the master with the "touch", Mancini, but Ellis does so with space age funk and atomic style.

From March 14, 1960 Billboard: This driving new side from the Ray Ellis album, "The Best Of Peter Gunn," is a mighty listenable hunk of wax. It could get a lot of spins.

  1. Have been listening to my lp of this release. The cover is falling apart but the vinyl sounds great. The music on this lp is timeless, nice post, everyone should get a copy!


Howdy! Thanks for leaving your thoughts!
