Attilio Mineo - Man In Space With Sounds (1962)



This is the complete version with spoken word introductions. "Man in Space with Sounds" was composed by Arthur 'Attilio' Mineo in the early 50s and was played through the sound system in "The Bubbleator", an exhibit that was part of the 1962 Seattle Space Age World's Fair. "The Bubbleator" was a 150-passenger spherical clear plastic elevator that moved 2.5 million people through the "World of Tomorrow" displays that promised an easier life ahead and a glimpse of life in the future! To accompany their journey, the sound system piped in the evocative orchestral and electronic music of Man in Space with Sounds that helped to create a futurist experience for the passengers. The original LP was released in limited quantities on the World's Fair record label around 1962 in two versions: one with a short piece of spoken word introduction before each track and one without the introductions. As I said, this is the version with introductions. Neither LP was in stereo, but THIS is Space Age! Even in mono...

Holy smokes, the version with vocal introductions! Thanks, Pinicchio!

If you feel like posting another space album and you have Joe Meek's "I Hear a New World", that would be great!

Great selections as always - great and fun taste!

BTW, rapidshare allows up to 100MB files now so if it saves you some time, some files can go up as one file - in either case, thanks!

Wow -- the version with the intros (I got the other version from XTABAY, 'natch) -- and Ports of Pleasure in the same week! Live is good!

How come the Atillo Mineo link of Jan 27 has disappeared so soon? Also Enoch Light's Provocative Percussion? The links have always stayed longer.

Is there any chance this could be reposted? My copy got deleted, and I'm brokenhearted! :-(
