Space 1999 – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack 2XLP
Death Waltz Recording Company is ready to whisk you to the far-flung future of the late 20th century with the truly out-of-this-world Ennio Morricone score to SPAZIO: 1999. Produced by the legendary Gerry and Sylvia Anderson, and starring the late, great Martin Landau, the feature was constructed out of three episodes of the revered SPACE: 1999 television show to introduce Italian audiences to Commander Koenig and the inhabitants of Moonbase Alpha, and thrilled audiences with nuclear explosions, parallel universes, and space opera thrills. While the Italian show still featured the brassy sound of Barry Gray, the legendary maestro Morricone was employed to bring a decidedly different feel to the theatrical film.
Limited pressing of 1000 copies. Disc One Landing Pad Orange & black. Disc Two Evil Eye Orange & white.
From the opening the score launches into wild space jazz with piano and trumpet interspersed with all kinds of noise before it descends into a creepier vibe. Morricone uses unsettling violins and atonal music together with electronics to simulate the void of space and the danger faced by the intrepid heroes, and what emerges is a mix of sci-fi and horror that will not only thrill you, but also scare the living daylights out of you. Human decision required. – Charlie Brigden (Creator, The Sound Of Fear Podcast)
