Dragon’s Domain Records, to be distributed through buysoundtrax.com, presents THE ALBERT GLASSER COLLECTION, VOLUME 1 , featuring music composed and conducted by Albert Glasser (THE CISCO KID, I SHOT JESSE JAMES, THE AMAZING COLOSSAL MAN, THE SPIDER) for HUK! And TOKYO FILE 212, two films from his extensive filmography.

HUK! is a 1956 United Artists action film directed by John Barnwell, written by Stirling Silliphant, and starring George Montgomery, Mona Freeman, John Baer, James Bell, Teddy Benavides and Mario Barri. Set and filmed in the Philippines, HUK! follows American planter Greg Dickson (Montgomery) who returns to the Philippines in 1951 intending to sell his dead father's plantation. When he arrives in the country, he finds that it has been overrun by Huk guerrillas, including the rebel leader who killed his father. With the aid of buddy Bart (Baer) and Bart's wife, Cindy (Freeman), Greg helps defend the local people from the rebels.

TOKYO FILE 212 is a noirish detective adventure set during the Korean War but taking place in Japan. The RKO picture was directed by Dorrell & Stuart E. McGowan and starred Robert Peyton (aka Lee Frederick), Florence Marly, Katsuhiko Haida, and Reiko Otani. Released in 1951, TOKYO FILE 212 is about a Communist spy ring in Tokyo hard at work trying to sabotage the American war effort using kidnapping, murder, and a disturbed former kamikaze pilot. A U.S. secret agent (Peyton), posing as a reporter, is dispatched to Tokyo to put a stop to these nefarious activities, while befriending a shady woman (Marly).

Born January 25, 1916, Albert Glasser was a composer, conductor and arranger of film music. One of the most prolific B-movie composers, Albert Glasser started off as a copyist in the music department at Warner Brothers in the late 1930s, learning the art of film scoring from scratch while working under Max Steiner and Erich Wolfgang Korngold. He graduated to orchestrating, and by the mid-1940s was composing his own scores. He scored approximately 200 films during his career, many for American International Pictures and director Bert I. Gordon. For the US War Department, Glasser composed for Frank Capra's Special Services Unit and for Office of War Information radio shows for overseas broadcasts. For television, he composed the score for THE CISCO KID. For radio, he composed scores for HOPALONG CASSIDY, CLYDE BEATTY, and TARZAN.

Dragon’s Domain Records presents THE ALBERT GLASSER COLLECTION, VOLUME 1, featuring music composed and conducted by Albert Glasser for HUK! And TOKYO FILE 212 for the first time on compact disc. The music has been mastered by James Nelson at Digital Outland and the liner notes have been written by noted author Randall Larson.

THE ALBERT GLASSER COLLECTION, VOLUME 1 is a limited edition release of 500 units. THE ALBERT GLASSER COLLECTION, VOLUME 1 is expected to begin shipping the week of Nov 9th, 2020 and can be ordered at www.buysoundtrax.com .

Well done Ford, Mark and company. Long have I hoped and waited for these 2 to be released on cd. I bought the lp's when they were issued years ago. Now, I can look forward to these on cd.

This has been on our list for quite sometime, Albert Glasser was a real character and a nice human being.

We're glad to resurrect these titles or the 21st Century

Ah! thanks, from the other thread it seemed like everything was from the 80s or 90s. This is a nice surprise.

Yes we have some other ideas of future Glasser releases.

One thing we'd like to highlight is his more. jazzy scores which are really delightful.

I ordered from Intrada and got a shipping notice yesterday, so the answer is yes?

Buysoundtrax website says shipping the week of November 9. Mine wasn't posted until the 18th, according to tracking.

If you signed up for their email newsletter, several new releases next week. I know I'll be getting the 1950s sci-fi double feature

I just read this in my email. 4 albums: only 1 from the 1990s, 2 from the '70s & 1 from the '50s.
One of them is Brian May's Patrick. Speculations on the '50s sci-fi? Doesn't sound like Glasser.
And what's that '70s TV movie horror?

Four releases, but two are double-features. The 1950s is a double-feature with 2 different composers. One of the 1970s releases is a double-feature (TV horror movie and feature film) by the same composer. But there's only one sound sample clue for each release, so you can't guess the 2nd title on the double features.

The single sample from the 1950s double-feature is for Leith Steven's World Without End.

I thought the 1990s title was by Dennis McCarthy. Sounds like Star Trek Generations, again.
