Bernard Herrmann
Day The Earth Stood Still

Still Sealed. Limited press of 300 only. Laminated colour flipback sleeve. Composed in July 1951 and recorded in August, Herrmann took advantage of theremin master Samuel Hoffman to add the menacing atmosphere that would become a trademark in 1950s sci-fi soundtracks. In addition to Hoffman’s theremin other instruments included violin, cello, and bass (all three electric), another theremin played by Paul Shure, two Hammond organs, a large studio electric organ, three vibraphones, two glockenspiels, two pianos, two harps, three trumpets, three trombones, and four tubas. Unusual overdubbing and tape-reversal techniques were used, as well. An astonishing piece of music
