Jimmie Haskell - Count Down! (1957)
This is THE outer space album of that era. And to me it´s one of the best either. It features the theremin and some talking alien, and the style is close to surf-music. On the cover you can see Mr. Haskell himself playing his self-developed synthesizer. This one is a must-have, if you like space-age music.
And one more thing: On the picture above you can see the stereo-version. I found that picture on the web, when I prepared this post. My version is the mono-thing, which should be in better quality than the stereo-version, according to some reviewers. I can´t tell, because I haven´t heard the stereo-thing. My file includes pictures of the front and back cover as well.
