|Mr. Spock's Music From Outer Space Vinyl|
Lift off begins with a sonic blast and the formidable Leonard Nimoy 'presenting' Mr. Spock's Music From Outer Space. A rarity to be sure, and filled with delightfully cheesy 1960's flavored electronic sounds, including Spock's unfaltering logic in the form of spoken word and bad poetry. An essential part of any Sci-Fi or Star Trek lover's collection. But do play it, won't you?
|Star Wars Original Soundtrack Vinyl|
With a slick gatefold cover and requisite Darth Vader portrait on the back, look for this double album to come with a thin booklet of still shots from the film, or a film sheet with factoids about the process (with none of Lucas' ego). But then you already knew that didn't you? This one obviously goes fast, so grab it while you can.
|The Empire Strikes Back Soundtrack Vinyl|
It goes without saying that The Empire Strikes Back is the next installment in the ORIGINAL trilogy (which are the only Star Wars films you'll see on THIS blog! Humph.) This time with Darth on the front cover, daring you to open the gatefold and listen. This particular theme is another instantly recognizable piece of musical history, with few matching its commanding presence. John Williams never fails to bring us the goods, because really, can you imagine any of these films with different music?? Quelle horreur!

|There's Something Going On Out There Vinyl|
|Starman Soundtrack Vinyl|
Here's a great title that you don't see very often; the Starman Soundtrack. John Carpenter fans rejoice, this is a piece of memorabilia you may have missed. Sadly, there are no tracks composed by John on this soundtrack, he handed the reins over to Jack Nitzsche, an accomplished composer in his own right. Albeit a bit repetitive, the music certainly creates a mood consistent throughout the entire album. Classic cover art completes the package, suitable for framing or display rack. You'll be all the envy of your fellow Sci Fi nerds with this one, so just smile when they ask, "where'd you get that??!"
|Twilight Zone - The Movie Soundtrack Vinyl|
Yet another stellar cover, just looking at it invokes a creepy feeling that something is just over the horizon, and coming to get you, Barbara. Proof that Sci Fi and Horror genres will always make for interesting bedfellows.
Place all chairs and trays into their upright postions, extinguish all smoking materials and you may now unfasten your seatbelts.
