Mighty fine score recording of music from the late 60's television series (Mannix) scored by Jazz master turned Technicolor hipster Lalo Schifrin!
Original USA vinyl release has a good, cool aura about it not unlike some magical and mysterious root found only on rare occasions in a strange and peculiar land far far away!
The world from which this music and recording came is a lost era in civilized society. To consider that time would be to float into a world of suntan oil smell and bikini clad beauties shortly before the world began going insane and in extreme cases, queer.
Mannix was a cool son of a bitch on American television. At times his influence could be detected in my own Uncle Joe who would occasionally step out in a leasure suit of his own.
The Schifrin score on Paramount records works on many a level. As exciting entertainment whilst indulging in a taste of the afore mentioned root or as stereophonic background for a one night stand in Anaheim, California 1967 swingin' 60's style! *****
