Two For The Road

Another request from awhile ago, it's Henry Mancini's soundtrack to "Two For The Road" starring Audrey Hepburn. It's from 1967, and while not Hank's most memorable work, it's still 1967 Henry Mancini, you know?

The actual album cover is fairly dull, but I found a foreign lobby card that's better...

Available from Rapid or Mega...

Dr. Goldfoot was played by Vincent Price...

...so was Egghead!

Meanwhile at the airport... no shoes, no bottled water, no lip gloss, no girl bombs?!

A long while back I said I'd post my copies of the Dr. Goldfoot songs, so here are the themes (straight from my VHS tapes) of Dr. Goldfoot & The Bikini Machine and Dr. Goldfoot and the Girl Bombs. I've also tossed in "Spy Type Guy" from The Man Called Flintstones and a version of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. theme by the Paris Mitchell Strings with Brass (the opening of which sounds not unlike the opening to Ultraman).

Available from your choice of Rapid (Bikini Machine) or Mega (Girl Bombs)

Some new stuff coming...

The other day I dug out a bunch of stuff folks have asked for, and they should start popping up sometime over the next few days. After the new stuff is up, I'll try to put up fresh links to the Dick Van Dyke and Mannix posts.

Since there's no graphic to suitably represent that I'm cutting through the backlog of things I've been asked to post, here's some sign I found about Keen Kutting:

Can Two Divorced Men Share The Stage Without Driving Each Other Crazy?

In a companion piece to both the Odd Couple Sings! and the dialog-free post of the Neal Hefti score to the Lemmon/Matthau film posted over at You Don't Have To Visit This Blog, here are the dialog tracks from the soundtrack album. Despite being on the movie soundtrack, they appear to be recorded live (since they have applause on them). They stand alone as a sort of mini comedy album featuring some of the classic bits from the play.

Can Two Divorced Men Share A Record Without Driving Each Other Crazy?

Here is the long-awaited Odd Couple Sings! album.

Released on London's groovy Phase 4 Stereo with swinging Roland Shaw leading the orchestra and chorus, it's television's Felix & Oscar singing.

You don't need me to sell you on this. The song choices were pretty much dead-on, the performances are excellent and most of all it's just lots of fun to listen to.

Say what you will, I think Jack Klugman sings just fine, especially on "Johnny One Note."

Get it from either...



Enjoy it!
