This LP contains Music Out of the Moon and Perfume Set to Music, containing some of the first electronic chillout music ever composed, originally released in 1947 and 1948 on 10" 78 RPM. An unusual mix of different styles and music represented by the three men who contributed to the album: Dr. Samuel J. Hoffman played Theremin for several sci-fi and horror movies during the '40s and the '50s -- masterpieces such as Spellbound and The Day the Earth Stood Still. Les Baxter "The Father of Exotica" and his dreams of Pacific and Oriental islands can also be found here -- musical impressions of tropical fantasies. Harry Ravel is also featured, a talented English composer of musical theater and soundtracks for Hollywood movies. These two records were unique collaborations between three disparate talents, who envisioned a world of sound inspired by science fiction, perfumes, and meditative moments. Without them, the Theremin could perhaps never have been considered in a pop context, and projects as disparate as "Good Vibrations" and Silver Apples might never have happened. The influence of this music is clear in the multiform artist Sun Ra, who covered the song "Possession" on his second LP Jazz by Sun Ra. Digitally remastered and limited to 300 copies.
