CD Review: Henry Mancini - Two For The Road/ Me Natalia
1960s movie soundtrack buffs will welcome this release combining two hard to find Henry Mancini film soundtracks from the late 1960s.
While Two for The Road featured the combination of Audrey Hepburn and Albert Finney on the big screen, Me Natalia starred Patty Duke and James Farentino, with Mancini’s magical orchestral arrangements setting the scene in both movies.
Mancini fans don’t necessarily have to have seen the films to enjoy the albums as they fit nicely into the easy listening lounge-style post Beatlemania pop.
Repackaged with extensive liner notes offering insight into Mancini's involvement and how he was specifically requested by Audrey Hepburn to be involved with the Two For The Road soundtrack, this release is a worthy addition for anyone collecting Mancini's output and film soundtrack collectors.
