Yes, that is Spock in the headphones. The year was 1979. These are some of my LPs, themed compilations, and the like.

Cashin' in on Sci-Fi Fanatics

This compilation might have originated in Europe because of the "what the heck is THAT" choices.

After all, what red-blooded American SF/F fan knows what a "Raumpatrouille Orion" is?  Sounds awful French and effete to me!

I picked this up on a table at Skaggs Albertsons as a cassette.  Original cassette liner art adapted for CD.

Along with your frogs and snails, here are the songs.

01. Vangelis - Blade Runner
02. Richard Strauss - 2001 A Space Odyssey
03. Jerry Goldsmith Alien
04. John Williams - Return of the Jedi
05. John Williams - Star Wars
06. John Williams ET
07. Les Baxter - The Black Hole
08. Wagener  Lohmer - Silent Moon
09. K Doldinger - The Neverending Story
10. Stu Phillips - Battlestar Galactica
11. P Thomas - The Noah's Ark Principle
12. P Thomas - Raumpatrouille Orion
13. John Williams - The Time Tunnel
14. Marius Constant - The Twilight Zone
15. Alexander Courage - Star Trek
16. John Williams - Close Encounters of the Third Kind
17. Leith Stevens - War of the Worlds
18. John Williams - Raiders of the Lost Ark
19. Wagener  Lohmer Frost

Maybe one of you fine folks can explain why the little girl on the cover image is there in the first place.  Obviously intended to evoke Carol Anne from Poltergeist .... but there's no music from Poltergeist on the tape?!!?

Obscure, and proud of it!


  1. Looks interesting, particularly Time Tunnel. I forgot that little "Johnny Williams" did the themes for a lot of the Irwin Allen classics.

  2. Yep. The selection on this album is hard to recognize as the Second Season's theme. It is definitely NOT the First Season, with its braying French horns.
    Remember when TV shows had theme music? And when the themes were rerecorded (and usually rearranged) every season? Ahh, life ... -- Mark
