Esquivel - Other Worlds Other Sounds (1958)
Zoo-zoo-zoo-zoo-zoo-zooooo... Yes, dear guests, this is definitely a classic one. The pioneer of Space-Age-Music. An original, as usual on this site. I don´t do DJ´s work by doing own compilations, trying to be an artist. I preserve the original work, because I´m sure, at that time, long ago, long before market research and other crap, the artists put tracks on their albums on purpose. And it all fits together, ´cause THEY were the Artists, not me. I will not be that blasphemic to compile tracks in any other way than it was planned by the musician / conductor himself.
By the way: The same cover background was used incidentially on "Destination Moon" by the Ames Brothers in the same year. I don´t remember who was first, but I guess it doesn´t matter anyhow. But it shows how poular other planets were at that time. This was the first record that Esquivel recorded in the U.S.A. It does not contain explicit space-music, it´s more the kind of music when stereo was about to start. Now please enjoy THE "Space-Age"-record!
