Thumbs up Re: Best sounding DVD-Audio discs

This is not a DVD - A or an SACD either, but a little history. My Dad played mostly jazz and motown during my youth. Which obviously to this day shaped what I listen to now, until I branched out on my own at about 13. Rare Earth, Santana, Jimi Hendrix, Osibisa, Return to Forever, you get the picture. But, he played this RCA/Living Stereo recording with powerful horns, great arrangements, even some mellow stuff.
I played this lp to death, when he was not home. It is from a detective show I never saw, but love the music. Any guesses?
Most people know him from the "Theme from the Pink Panther". Alright, the soundtrack from "Peter Gunn" by Henry Mancini. The title track is just awesome as it contnually builds to a final crescendo!! I had been looking for this for a while. I finally picked up a Japanese pressing from Tower Records.
If you are looking for some good music, enjoy soundtracks, even if you never saw the show, this cd has it!!!
