Hybrid Stereo SACD plays in both CD and SACD players, as well as all SACD-compatible DVD players

"OK, it runs to less than a half-hour, it's a tad corny and we're talking about one of the funniest farces ever to star the incredible Peter Sellers, so you probably think you will never listen to it minus the visuals. But so sublimely well recorded is the 'golden era' RCA original, and so perfectly captured here on SACD, that it's enough to make you invest in the format if you haven't already. The theme tune is so instantly recognizable as to be a cliché, and the only reason it's not the release of the month is because I suspect you already own it. This is so gorgeous that you might find yourself bitten by the soundtrack bug ... and that can be expensive. A gem." Sound Quality = 91% - Ken Kessler, HiFi News, March 2017

"Analogue Productions has followed its highly regarded series of classical RCA Living Stereo SACDs with three of (Henry) Mancini's biggest hit albums. ... The Pink Panther (released in 1964) is justly famous for the unforgettable breathy texture of the tenor sax in the ultra popular main theme ... There is no denying the electrifying you-are-there realism as the sax explodes from the soundstage." — Arthur Lintgen, The Absolute Sound, April 2017

Marking the 50th anniversary of the score to the classic film, Analogue Productions has created a truly remarkable pressing for an audiophile classic. The soundtrack to the film "The Pink Panther."

"Moon River" might be Henry Mancini's biggest hit, but it was Mancini's score for Blake Edwards's 1964 farce "The Pink Panther" that introduced his music to generations of children; the haunting, jazzy main theme was used in dozens of cartoon shorts that were broadcast on television for years. The Pink Panther Soundtrack features 12 songs.
