From the Manufacturer

World premiere 2-CD release of original soundtracks to four sci-fi/fantasy movies from legendary producer George Pal. Leith Stevens music from War of the Worlds (1953) anchors, offering an imposing main title and several evocatice sequences. All surviving cues presented in crisp mono from original elements stored in Paramount vaults. Also getting attention is complete 41-minute Leith Stevens score for When Worlds Collide (1951), presented from Paramount mono masters with choral overlays intact. Colorful sci-fi expedition music abounds!

Taking center stage next is the exciting, frightening 40-minute Daniele Amfitheatrof soundtrack for The Naked Jungle (1954), mastered from dynamic three-channel stereo scoring session elements, amongst first ever made at Paramount! Score offers both an richly expressive love theme and exciting action material with advanced harmonic vernacular. Getting the spotlight is the ferocious presto motif for a massive army of ants marching inexorably towards Charlton Heston's South America plantation. Terrific descending idea for brass, woodwinds is chilling, even by today's standards!

Rounding out the impressive collection is 35-minute Nathan Van Cleave score for Conquest of Space (1955). The music here is both exciting and stirring. Presented in mono from from original Paramount master elements. These four scores represent some of the most evocative sci-fi & fantasy works of the fifties! Full color artwork and stills plus authoritative notes from Jeff Bond round out generous set. Intrada Special Collection release available while quantities and interest remains!
