There's a riff which appears in "Martian Night" & "Lonely Nights" ( a back and forth arpeggio) which is from Ralph Vaughan Williams: Sinfonia Antartica (Symphony No. 7).
Electronics man Jack Cookerly told me he did the organ stuff on this score. I wonder if he did both organs since it says 2 were used?

This was a title that it seems was requested 50,000 times and we're thrilled to present it in glorious stereo - and complete.

I am wondering if it was two people making 25,000 requests each however!


Does that mean we two have to order 1500 cds each?

He and Steiner got this sound out of 24 players??????? Holy Crap! (Sorry, but that's an amazing fact.)

Ordered at once.

There are at least five simultaneous threads about Robinson Crusoe on Mars.
So I can't help checking out this new release (never watched the movie though).
Very very nice clips! But the wallet is empty till next week. So...

The clips are great. I never, ever thought I'd see this released. I thought the score was very evocative when I first watched it on the late show back in 9th grade in 1971.

I cant believe this actually came out. And the whole score, 25 cuts, wow. I have to pinch myself. I think I'm dreaming. Thanks FSM,

That penis is distracting. But I'm all for personal expression.

That's an unused shot of Chris Draper after he finds water on Mars. Mona found it distracting too, especially since "Mona" was actually played by a monkey named Barney!

I've been a fan of this movie since I first saw it on TV (I think it was an NBC "Saturday Night at the Movies" broadcast) back when I was six or seven. I think the main theme is evocative of the Kennedy era mystique (if that's the right word), which I have a child's memory of and miss very much. The country has certainly gone downhill since. What we need is a manned mission to Mars. We could afford it if we'd only stop getting into wars.

Anyway, ORDERED!!!! Thanks, FSM and I like your choice of cover. Wish Criterion had the same sense to use it on their Blu-ray.

Maybe the release of the CD will inspire Obama to launch a manned exploration to Mars ;-)

I couldn't be happier about this release: love classic SF scores and this is a great movie. Too bad the blu-ray's region locked.

Ahhhh! Finances aligned in a positive way, so I pulled the trigger on this puppy. Can't wait to hear it.

On my first listen and it has totally exceeded my expectations after all of these year of waiting! The sound quality alone is light years ahead of what I thought would be available if a release ever came about.

Mr. Echo, go to Hell...but not the score!

I ordered this CD yesterday (along with TELEFON/HIDE IN PLAIN SIGHT), and I'm waiting anxiously to hear it issuing from my stereo, and at work, from my iPod/speaker set.

I have very fond memories of this movie, and I picked up the DVD with a little bit of trepidation. But in this case, my memory didn't play me wrong. ROBINSON CRUSOE ON MARS is a terrific little movie.

Got my copy yesterday...sounds GREAT and what a nice booklet/presentation!! Thanks to Lukas & all involved for a dream manifested.

Listening now and it sounds fabulous. Both the music and the sound quality are marvelous.

The Finale music was interesting. The first minute and a half sounds like it would fit comfortably into Herrmann's Obsession, without sounding out of place.

Only thing I'm unsure about is the departure from FSM's usual and very legible presentation of the notes. I've always been an admirer of the straightforward, visual clarity of FSM's type, but here we have reversed-out white type on very dark background which looks more La-La Land than traditional FSM.
I'm pleased to see the other FSM received today (Homecoming) has the simpler look I prefer.
