Mancini at some of his innovative, exuberant best
How long has this been on the Absolute Sound's Super LP list in one or another of its vinyl incarnations?!? I'm very happy to find it now released by HDTT in this very nice DXD transfer. The album has long been a great, fun listen - particularly the ever popular "Baby Elephant Walk" which is reproduced superbly here. You either love this album or you don't; I find it great fun. This is Mancini at some of his innovative, exuberant best, as he explores a huge range of sounds, rhythms, and textures. The sound quality of the DXD transfer to which I'm listening is very nice: open and alive, with extended frequency extremes and sharply defined impactful dynamics. It is another very nice HDTT transfer.
