REVIEW

April 11, 2012

On March 21, 2012 David Schecter and the crew of Monstrous Movie Music at: http://www.mmmrecordings.com/ put out two new, wonderful CD's of old "B" movies from the 1950's full of rare tracks. I am a big fan of his CD's and own all of them. You can't go wrong with any of the CD's from their site. It's easy to see and hear how much work and soul they put into each release.

The soundtrack to "Rocketship X-M was the first to use the Theremin, an electronic instrument that was used in many Sci-Fi and monster movies over the next decade. In fact, the next year in 1951 Bernard Herrmann used this instrument extensively in "The Day The Earth Stood Still" (still one of my all time favorites, the original, not the remake).

This CD contains no music used in Godzilla movies but is a great listening experience and the Theremin was used in several Japanese horror and monster films into the 1960's.
