This CD is the original soundtrack to the 13 episode British-German sci-fi series Star Maidens, The Girls From Outer Space airing during 1976-77. The music is interesting and campy, sounding like a 1970's B movie. I have never seen this series but it supposedly aired between the first and second season's of "Space: 1999". While certainly not a bad stand alone listening experience, it does come across somewhat like elevator music. Something innocuous that you might have playing in the background instead of sitting and giving a serious listen. What few vocals there are and some track titles are in German which makes sense since this was a combined British/German production. Track 1 & 27 have a bit of female moaning making it sound partly like this is from a porno film.
The packaging is a bit different from normal. The scan of the cover above is NOT what it really looks like. The CD has a half size fold out booklet inside the jewel case and an outer wrapper about half the normal booklet size so that it wraps around half the CD case. Also it is not black but instead has a foil, mirror finish with white lettering. Because of the mirror finish all the light from the scanner feeds back creating the black image you see above.
