HATARI!

Label: Intrada Special Collection Volume 200
Date: 1962
Tracks: 32
Time = 61:36

Special Collection Volume 200 is neat milestone! World premiere release of actual Henry Mancini soundtrack to terrific Howard Hawks adventure film set in Africa, starring John Wayne, Elsa Martinelli, Red Buttons. Wayne and company capture rare animals for various world zoos. Some species are easier to catch than others. Elephants inspire Mancini to create legendary tune "Baby Elephant Walk", available for first time ever in its original soundtrack guise. Famous swaggering tune for high register Eb clarinet also figures during climactic "Search For Dallas". Leopard, buffalo, monkey, giraffe, ostrich all get their say but incredibly dangerous rhino sequences are what bring out Mancini's equally legendary main theme, often heard on choir of French horns in unison. In 1962, Mancini re-recorded just 30 minutes of highlights for admittedly sensational RCA album. In companionship with that album, now enjoy Mancini's complete original recordings, presented mostly in stereo from Paramount Pictures scoring session elements. A few sections required use of mono stems to allow restoration of complete soundtrack. This new hour long release carries landmark significance: every Mancini album during this most famous period of his career (Breakfast At Tiffany's, Hatari, Charade, Experiment In Terror, The Pink Panther) was heavily truncated and completely re-arranged with emphasis on dance mood. Along with new release of Charade, this marks exciting debut of an actual Mancini soundtrack from the era! Danger, romance, thrills, comedy, all getting rich Mancini melody! Unforgettable original campaign artwork is icing on the cake. Henry Mancini conducts. Available while quantities and interest remain.

Oh, hell yes! I have the old album on vinyl because I could never manage to get the CD, so this is a must-buy. Have always loved this film and score.

This and Charade are absolutely amazing releases. I never thought that these would ever see the light of day. Mancini is forever young in these scores. Thank you, Intrada.

Not sure if this is a new thing, but it seems like the good folks at Intrada have more sound samples up. I for one LIKE this!!

Ordered! This was the first soundtrack album that I ever bought for myself (my parents had given me LPs for THE ALAMO and THE ROBE), so the score is a favorite of mine. I'd rather have had two Herrmann/Universal scores, but HATARI! will be great.

I've been playing this for the past week (yes, I know, I cheated) and it's probably my favorite Mancini album now. Those jungle rhythms are g-r-e-a-t. But then, those latin rhythms on Charade are pretty swell, as well. I guess I'll put that one back on (heh).

ALRIGHT!!!! Ordered both but HATARI! is an all time favorite film and score. I never tired watching the film or listening to the score.

So is HATARI a limited edition?

I have to admit I was part of the "Mancini Generation," the name of his TV show and the first composer to have such a show. When the PETER GUNN theme came out it was the first television show to hit the charts bigtime. And as far as I could remember he was the first composer to have annual and semi-annual concerts of his film music. He influenced a whole generation of composers including John Williams, Lalo Schifrin and Quincy Jones.

HATARI! was a score that was played all over the place. "Baby Elephant Walk" and "Your Father's Feathers" was used for everything from commercials to TV programs like "Beachcomer Bill". It was a personal favorite. But I only could hear the pop version RCA allowed us to hear. Now I get the real thing.

I was starting to get very cynical about the talk going around that "we would be seeing all the scores we ever dreamed of coming soon". Now maybe that actually might be a true.

GARY S:

Thanks. That's what I thought.

I've got CHARADE on Blu-ray. I wonder when HATARI will be on Blu-ray....I haven't seen it since it was in the theater.

Yes. It is part of the Special Collection.


According to Intrada: "Available while quantities and interest remain." Intrada made it clear some time back that they were no longer doing limited editions.

In a way they are limited, just not to a predetermined number. When interest wanes, they'll stop making copies and the CD will go OOP.

I have never ever understood ths obsession with limited editions. The main reason to buy a soundtrack is the music. Why care about how many there are? Collecting for collectings sake reduces buying cds to just that: buying some plastic.

And you do know why these cds are limited? It's because there is no marked for pressing ten or a hundred thousand cds. It' s not done to make them scarce and collectible. Well that was todays rant. Sorry all!

I completely agree, but at the least there's the issue of wanting to know when it might sell out. I for one don't buy everything the instant it's released, but if I think something is likely to sell out in a week or less, I probably will buy it right away (provided I want it of course)
