THE GOLDEN AGE OF SCIENCE FICTION - VOL. 2: THE LOST MISSILE / WAR OF THE SATELLITES / THE ANGRY RED PLANET (500 EDITION) (CD)
Composed by: Gerald Fried, Paul Dunlap, Walter Greene

During the 1950s, the Cold War launched the paranoia of nuclear and communist nightmares into full swing. The American teenager frequently sought salvation in the darkness of a movie theater or drive-in where it wasn’t hard to find some sort of a science-fiction film playing on the screen. Hundreds of low-budget films were cranked out for double features, many with plots inspired by real-world events under the guise of science-fiction.

Dragon’s Domain is proud to present the second volume in their Golden Age series with three more classic original scores by musical masters of the genre.

THE LOST MISSILE was an early work by legendary composer Gerald Fried, who went on to score the memorable “Amok Time” episode of STAR TREK. This modest 1958 production hones in on the very real fear of a missile attack from a foreign power, but changes the destructive projectile into an out-of-control alien spacecraft. The genesis of many of Fried’s memorable motifs can be found here.

Also released that same year, WAR OF THE SATELLITES features a rousing, full orchestral score by Walter Greene (THE BRAIN FROM PLANET AROUS). Master low-budget producer Roger Corman, inspired by the recent launch of the Soviet satellite Sputnik, quickly created this tale where an unseen alien menace is hellbent on preventing humanity from venturing into space.

THE ANGRY RED PLANET, released in 1959, features a memorable “spacey” score courtesy of Paul Dunlap. This rare color sci-fi film featured a quartet of astronauts menaced by xenophobic Martians who unleash their malevolent giant pets, an amorphous blob with a spinning eye and the memorable Bat-Rat-Spider!

The second volume in this series of collections of music from the Golden Age of Science Fiction has been mastered by James Nelson at Digital Outland. Exclusive liner notes by author David Hirsch explore these classic films from the sci-fi craze of the 1950s.
