Discovered this range of cd's quite by accident from a friend who is into hi-fi in a big way and had commented to me about the superior quality of these Telarc recordings - Boy was he right ! I now have all four of the 'space' themed discs by Erich Kunzel & the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra - Time Warp, Star Tracks, Fantastic Journey and this disc. All are fantastically recorded with the original digital master being transferred straight to cd. If you like your sci-fi films and appreciate quality orchestral recordings, buy these !

Discovering Erich Kunzel and the Cincinatti Pops has been one of life's happy accidents. This orchestra is the 'dog's whatsits', not a trace of anything to criticise in any department. Just listen to 'The Wrath of Khan';.. what fabulous trumpet playing (could it be Wynton Marsalis?). The recording is of Telarc's usual superb standard and makes many otherwise excellent productions sound 'flat' by comparison. Any lover of film music just HAS to have this disc! If anything, it is even better than Volume 1, and that IS an acheivement.
