Right from the beginning, Mr. BIG (Bert I. Gordon) found a composer for his films whose music was just as deliriously wonderful as Mr. BIG's films. Albert Glasser was one of the most prolific B-movie composers in history. He scored hundreds of movies and TV shows. He joined Mr. BIG on his second film, Beginning Of The End, and did every BIG picture up through The Boy and the Pirates. His score for Earth vs. the Spider is Glasser at his best. It's just a perfect genre score, beginning with his grand main title, complete with its wailing theremin. His music pulses through most of the film, propelling it from one scene to the next with suspense music, chase music, mutant spider music – it's classic B-movie horror music, the kind that anyone who grew up in the 1950s will instantly recognize.
It's so pleasing to finally bring some Albert Glasser to CD, and also pleasing to continue our trip down memory lane with the films of Mr. BIG – Bert I. Gordon. Gordon and Glasser – it was a match made in B-movie heaven.
This CD is mastered from Mr. Glasser's own 1/4" tape – it's the complete score as he wrote it – in the film the score is edited and moved around and has repeated cues – we present every note of music he wrote for the film, in mono sound, as recorded.
This release is limited to 1000 copies only.
