4.0 out of 5 stars If you like the film - you'll like this
There appear to be 3 different C.D.s of this soundtrack all looking very similar. This is not a new recording, but I understand the original record version dating from 1960, also containing music from 'Atlantis, The Lost Continent'.

For such an old recording it sounds fine - it's unlikely a newer full version will ever be released - although Filby's Theme has...

For such an old recording it sounds fine - it's unlikely a newer full version will ever be released - although Filby's Theme has been recently re-recorded.

I'd not heard of the composer before and as always with film music some tracks work better than others, but the good is very good.

I think the film was made with a lot of heart and this score matches it perfectly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Be a Pal...listen to the talking rings, 29 Dec 2013

This review is from: Time Machine,The (Audio CD)
I picked up the LP this CD is based on years ago; not for the "Time Machine" score, which is excellent, but for Russell Garcia's more lively music to "Atlantis - the Lost Continent". It doesn't mention that title on this CD, but it's there. And well worth a listening to, if you like great film music.

George Pal was at the end of his career with "The Time Machine", though not intentional, Russell Garcia's music was perhaps already predicting a fast-changing world. "Atlantis" relied on stock footage from "Quo Vadis", props from "The Prodigal" and costumes from "Kismet". Garcia gave the film a certain dignity, with fanfares, themes and substance that this poor MGM film probably didn't deserve.

A bit of a novelty in the ST department. If you like pomp, and odd circumstance. You'll like this.

A lovely release that replaced a worn out cassette from the 80s, this CD is a faithful rendition of the charming music from a charming movie
