Three albums that no mid-60s household in America went without.

swap out goldfinger for a fifth dimension album and i'd say spot on.
Huh. Yeah maybe Up, Up and Away. But I think your parents were hipper than mine. They were 'Camelot' Rob and Laura Petrie types.
My dad didn't have Goldfinger either. But he had the other two.
Yep. My Dad had all three.
My parents liked Ferrante and Teicher. Whoever the hell they were.When my friend's dad died they asked me to put together a Muvee for the video. The music they picked was Herb Alpert's cover of "I get by with a little help from my friends" Yikes.
My mom had plenty of Henry Mancini and Ferrante and Teicher, but oddly enough, none of these. (Several Herb Alpert albums, but not Whipped Cream...The album I most remember her having: The Sound of Music soundtrack. I heard that one hundred times before I ever saw the movie.
We had Goldfinger and Herb Alpert, but I must admit you've thrown me with the Sergio Mendes. The album would have been the ubiquitous third when and where I grew up was the original Supremes Greatest Hits double album with the blue cover and Niemann-esque painting.
From my thrift shop trips I've seen a lot of "Whipped Cream", but none of the other two.
