Oh that particular obsessive sound effects coming out of the "O.B.I.T." peeping Tom machine is due to music supervisor John Elizalde: fabulous sound design, isn't it? These electronic vibrations are so haunting.
Steven, "O.B.I.T." is just stock music from both "Stoney Burke" and "The Outer Limits".

LOL- Thanks, Mr Lomax, feel free to "Pop" in anytime!

Next on Voyage to the bottom of the Sea, the season 3 and 4 scores seen on TV.
And now, a word from our sponsor...

Well, essentially, we're talking about the same musical talent behind LIS (Johhny Williams notwithstanding), so I can't help but think we are going to see some of this material surface. TWO Leith Stevens scores? I agree with Jeff B. about his work, so underated and surprisingly did so much more genre work than the 3 George Pal movies he scored. "Cyborg" had some great cues in it. Cool little episode, kind of creeped me out when I was a kid.

Stevens and Courage were really responsible for Voyage's sound as far as I'm concerned; Sawtell's main theme is perhaps my all-time favorite TV theme, but for some reason his underscoring never matched the dynamism of the title music. Stevens' distinctive brass writing and Courage's talent for mysterioso writing gave the series its feel musically...plus Jerry Goldsmith's great contribution for Jonah and the Whale, of course...

Hello Jeff,

What do you think of Harry Geller's scores on VOYAGE and on 1960's TV series?

Didn't Geller do the one with Arthur Hill and the big pulsating brain? The electronic effects in that are cool...

No, he didn't.
You confuse with the season 3 opener "Monster from the Inferno" whose music is by Leith Stevens.
I make reference to four season 4 episodes, only two have guests : Vincent Price as the puppeteer in "The Deadly Dolls" and Chris Robinson as the medic time traveler in "The Death Clock".
So any comments?

My comment is...well, see my earlier comments about Leith Stevens! I don't recall the music from the other two episodes but maybe it's great.

Here's some unrelated Irwin Allen news, BTW. It's going to be a good year for Irwin Allen fans. Time Tunnel, Voyage and maybe even Land of the Giants (or as I call it, Gilligan's Island But With Giants) will arrive on DVD, and Product Enterprises, the company that makes those incredibly cool, expensive die-cast toys of spaceships and vehicles from Space:1999, UFO, Supercar and Captain Scarlett is going to be doing Irwin Allen diecasts, including a 12" Seaview, a 7" Flying Sub, 8" Spindrift and a Jupiter 2--maybe even a LIS Chariot. Woohoo!

Another one of my little side hobbies are cool models and toys of classic movie and tv sci-fi ships and robots- I'm thankfully surprised that 40 years after they aired, there is a demand for these things. I can't believe how much I find myself listening to the new LIS cd's- and REALLY appreciating the music AS music apart from their source (which with a show like LIS, is difficult to do!)If the discussion of all the fine music in Allen's productions on the board is any indication, it seems a given that we'll see more cd's from all these shows- particulary "VTTBOTS".

Don't see how "diecast" can compete with the strip styrene set, "up all night" superdetailing plastic sci-fi modelers out there Jeff.

...most of all Leith Stevens' incredible "Blast Off Into Outer Space." What a fantastic score that is! From the earthquake cue with its Poltergeist-like brass riffs and thrilling rhythmic play to the cool thematic writing, the almost medieval-sounding brass theme for the mummy, and the climactic space action material based on the family theme which is like something out of North's Cleopatra. Stevens is an incredibly underrated composer.

That he is, and there is not nearly enough of his work available. I recently managed to get the laserdisc of War of the Worlds, with an isolated music & effects track. It's one case where I won't mind, since I grew up listening to a cassette tape of the film I'd made off TV - I know the music better with the effects (plus it's all we'll ever hear of it - Paramount, don't you know). The Citadel Destination Moon CD was a multi-repeat disc of mine for a while, and I rediscover it every couple of years.

I recall listening online to an episode of X Minus One (I think), old time radio, and hearing such a distinctive Leith Stevens feel, even though I only knew two of his scores, and unusually, they announced the composer at the end - Mr. Stevens.

I would love to, but I don't see copies of LIS flying out the door. Shame too. I thought this was a knockout. C'est la vie! We'll be announcing a few more new titles very soon. Keep watching the site!

I've spread the word on a couple of Irwin Allen groups I'm part of, so hopefully they'll tell two friends, and they'll tell two friends...and so on and so on.

I got mine a few weeks ago and I'm digging it. smile
