Al Glasser and I were longtime friends. It's rather unusual since I live in Florida and he was in California. I visited him and his wife in their home many times over the years. His was a unique personality, but both he and Shirley were so kind and sensitive to me. Our first contact was when I was still a boy and loved Ferde Grofe's Rocketship X-M score, which Al orchestrated and conducted. Ferde referred me to Al, and I called him. As a result, Al sent me a tape containing the RX-M score. Years later, after completing college, I made a trip out west, and we hit it off right away. He made lots of tapes of his music for me and introduced me to Eric Korngold's work. I have a CD of The Fantastic Music of Albert Glasser. If you are interested, you can contact me at

You still have the tape of the score Rocketship X-M? Didn’t MMM release a copy of the 33 because the tapes couldn’t be found? Dragon Domain could possibly tackle that next.

Yes, I still have the tape, but it's well worn to say the least. I received it in 1956. Yes, MMM's release of the score was made from the Starlog LP released many years ago.

Here's your chance to buy his signed 116,089 word, 387 page autobio on ebay for a mere $300. That's only a penny per 4 words!

I'm still waiting for a C.D. release of "The Amazing Colossal Man" but, due to legal problems, it'll never happen.
