Product Description

Product Description

Greetings, Earthlings, Ace come in peace with a message for all who believe that there's life out there in the form of music. They've set their compiling phasers to stun and are ready to blast you off for an hour-plus of intergalactic audio that boldly goes where no similarly-themed compilation has ever gone before. Their mission to bring you the Greatest Hits From Outer Space has flown them through the whole solar system of interplanetary audio activity. You won't find any Purple People Eaters or hopping Martians hell-bent on invading your hi-fi, but they otherwise guarantee you a supersonic selection of fine musical esoterica, other worldly film and TV show themes and a sputniktacular collection of songs from the 50s and 60s that travel far beyond the Final Frontier of space age pop and rock n roll. This musical trek is programmed to bring everyone who travels with them down to earth with a safe landing, and the accompanying operator's manual (code name: CD booklet) is full of breathtaking ephemera that will rock(et)your world, whichever one it might be. One small step for Ace, one giant leap for customer-kind...

This a good compilation from 'Ace' records, with lots of rarely heard tracks on it. I can think of many tracks that would have been great on this compilation. For me it's a case of missed opportunities, at least 'Ace' haven't gone for the obvious tracks (with the exception of 'Telstar'). In fact, many haven't appeared on any 'Ace' cd's before and many I hadn't heard before either - so lots to discover. it's primarily a mix of Instrumentals and vocal tracks ranging from 1947 to 1972, the majority are 60's tracks. The Billy Riley track is the original unissued take 1 version and 'Space Oddity' is the 1969 Deram mono version which was released in 1989. My favourite track by far is the closing track - 'Armstrong' by John Stewart from 1969 - what a fantastic track. The enclosed 20 page colour booklet is excellent, packed with info and LP cover pics. Overall, a good solid compilation, perhaps not for everyone. 7.5/10.
