Will one of you specialty-label types please release this? I am waiting with $20 in hand. It is one of the greatest outer space albums ever, as good as anything on Star Trek TOS, Lost in Space, or The Day the Earth Stood Still.

Never on CD.

C'mon, I'm waiting!

This would sound amazing if sourced from the master tapes.

On a tangental note, I came across Invasion Of The Star Creatures the other day - an awful semi-professional "comedy" that looks like somone's home-movie. But it has a cute though ultra low budget score credited to Elliott Fisher and Jack Cookerly. It's just those two guys jamming on organ and electric violin (no orch), and sounds like leftover bits from Music From Outer Space, Atomic Submarine, Angry Red Planet, etc.

1950s space music fans may enjoy, but ploughing through the movie is the price you pay! wink

BTW, the film credits Fisher and Cookerly as composers, but IMDB says that the music was actually written by William Loose (I've never heard of him).

WILLIAM LOOSE was born on JUNE 5, 1910 in MICHIGAN. He composed music for over 60 efforts, [feature length films, documentaries, TV shows] from the late 50's into the late 80's. They include-TARZAN AND THE JUNGLE BOY, THE DORIS DAY SHOW, TRADER HORNEE[yes that is correct] REBEL ROUSERS, CHERRY, HARRY, RAQUEL[RUSS MEYER]BIG BIRD CAGE, DEVIL TIMES FIVE, SUPERVIXENS[RUSS MEYER] JAWS OF DEATH ETC ETC. William died on FEBRUARY 22, 1991 at the age of 80. Did some good stuff in his time, love his JAWS OF DEATH score.

William Loose also composed a lot of music for the Capitol Hi-Q library. Maybe that's where some of the STAR CREATURES music came from?

Well, we just made an agreement to release that with Frank's TV Guide album, both from Warner Music. We hope to get this out by summer.

All I can say right now but as a fan myself, we are very excited to do this for Frank's fans.

This is great news! Will you have access to the master tapes? Please keep us posted as this develops!

I never heard of it until this thread popped back into view. But in listening to the YouTube post, it sounds interesting. Who would have thought that you could orchestrate "Stella by Starlight" into a sci-fi-sounding track! It's a great album for theremin fans.

Warner is really good at providing quality masters to work from. I'll advise on this further once we get started. We are locked into to a deal, so I gotta admit I am very excited to be able to release these. If this does well, we will look into releasing similar pre-1970 orchestral albums from Rhino/WB. Sony has a lot of fun stuff too so they are another place we are looking at.

If all falls into place, deal-wise, we should have 10 soundtrack and orchestral album reissues to release over the next 12 months.

Thanks for your enthusiasm. It really makes doing this fulfilling when I know that we are finding things fans want.

True. Frank Comstock is so underrated in my book.

This is great news! I hope that Warren Barker's exotica masterpiece "Far Away Places" is also being considered!
