The Music from Peter Gunn

The Music from Peter Gunn is a 1959 album by Henry Mancini (RCA LPM/LSP-1956), the soundtrack of the TV series Peter Gunn. It was the first album ever to win the Grammy Award for Album of the Year in 1959. It was followed by More Music from "Peter Gunn" (RCA LPM/LSP-2040). The main theme is notable for its combination of jazz orchestration with a straightforward, rock 'n roll backbeat. The Music from Peter Gunn was selected by the Library of Congress as a 2010 addition to the National Recording Registry, which selects recordings annually that are "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".[1]
