This is a great CD. Track 1 is a fast paced, action oriented tune. Track 2 was slower paced and relaxing. The rest of the tracks were very reminiscent of the old Sinbad, Jason type movies that were scored by Bernard Herrmann with effects by Ray Harryhausen.
This is some really fun listening. I just found an original copy and grabbed it to replace my CDR copy. If you can find it, grab it.
