Offered for sale is a very unusual, and possibly unique, copy of Mancini Country by Henry Mancini, pressed on beautiful multicolored “splatter” vinyl.
This unusual LP came from the collection of a former RCA Records employee.
About this copy: This copy of Mancini Country was a manufacturing test pressed on multicolored vinyl, likely in 1977 or 1978. These colored vinyl pressings were likely limited to a handful of copies and were intended for in-house use, rather than for commercial sale or for use as promotional copies.
This record came without a cover, but we’ve added one. The cover is M- and retains the original shrink wrap.
Note: The catalog number on the disc is AFL1-4307 and the one on the cover is AYL1-4307. We’ve never seen a cover with the AFL1-4307 number, so we did the best that we could in finding a matching cover.
The disc is M- and looks unplayed.
A beautiful copy of a very unusual LP.
Background: Mancini Country was originally issued in 1970, and was a collection of country standards given the Henry Mancini instrumental touch.
In the late 1970s, RCA did some in-house experimentation by pressing a few of their titles on colored vinyl. These were not intended for commercial release.
The best-known of these are the copies of Moody Blue by Elvis Presley, which was commercially released on blue vinyl, but for which test pressings exist in a number of other colors. That LP was released in early 1977, and this one was likely pressed about the same time.
