The Omega Man 2.0—Unlimited
This set of online notes combines our original commentary from the 2000 edition of The Omega Man with new material generated for the 2008 reissue.
From 2000, we have the original liner notes essay (“The Last Man on Earth”), two sidebars (on engineer Dan Wallin and percussionist and waterchimes-inventor Emil Richards, respectively) and Lukas Kendall’s producer’s note (“It's a Family Thing”).
Finally, the track-by-track commentary is based on the 2000 liner notes, updated for the 2008 edition.
All of this material is also available in a convenient PDF file for easier printing.
Thanks for being part of our “Family” of Omega Man soundtrack admirers.
