"Dedicated to the memory of Henry Mancini
- who gave, and gave, and gave."
(Listed at the end credits of "A Memory For Tino").
Henry Mancini, late 1980s.
Henry Mancini is someone who certainly needs no introduction to anyone familiar with his television and motion picture scores which he wrote year after year for five decades. Hank was simply one of the most prolific American composers, ever. As a small child, I grew up listening to his record albums being played in the home, which led me to start purchasing them for myself once I graduated from high school. I hope visitors to the site will take the time to read a story about this on the page entitled "My Favorite Composer". After starting work on a larger collection-based site, I decided instead to change direction and present as many works I could find of Henry's right here, as that is what some other Mancini fans wanted and expressed to me in email.
A special note of thanks to José Sanches Perez
and Mike Newcomb, who both went above and beyond the call of
duty with scanning in many album covers I did not own myself,
as well as giving other support and assistance for the site's
completion. Others who have generously done research and as a
result, contributed items for inclusion in this site include

Below you will find a PayPal button for your
convenience to donate funds so that I can meet my costs for
keeping the sites online. I am a verified member of
PayPal. I neither accept nor solicit outside
advertising to be placed on any of the artist pages, nor
will I ever do so. Advertising totally intrudes on
what I want to achieve with these sites. I am most
happy to provide my time and energy in adding to and
updating these sites on a daily basis, but I need help in
paying for the internet space, internet provider, and domain
name registration year after year. These costs are not
insignificant. My discographies - which now span many music artists as well as two
music journalists - make up
well over 500 pages of internet information!
They are the largest discographies of their kind on the
entire internet. Please consider donating if you have
found these discographies to be a worthwhile resource for
yourself or for your organization. Thank you.
