"There are dozens of recordings with SUPERMAN, STAR TREK, ALIEN and STAR WARS. The LSO does a pretty good job with them all, especially SUPERMAN and ALIEN, but I didn't buy this CD for any of those selections; I got it for the others:
First Men in the Moon - Laurie Johnson
The Black Hole - John Barry
Meteor - Laurence Rosenthal
Battlestar Galactica - Stu Phillips
The Day Time Ended - Richard Band
Moonraker - John Barry
The Lost Galaxy - ??
IMO the best of these are METEOR (even with a little slightly-out-of-tune horn) and THE DAY TIME ENDED. Also OK are FIRST MEN IN THE MOON, MOONRAKER and LOST GALAXY. THE LOST GALAXY's opening passage bears an unmistakable resemblance to Goldsmith's CAPRICORN ONE.
I don't know how many packagings of this disc there've been, but... at least three. Mine has a very striking light blue painting of planets and is different from either of the two I've seen on Amazon."
