Two Original Albums On One 180g LP!
The Best-Selling Theremin Record Of All Time!


Digitally remastered edition of this 1958 album from "the founding father of Exotica". Space Escapade is the holy grail of the Exotica genre showcasing all of the eclecticism and sensual orchestral effects that are Baxter's remarkable trademark. Baxter here is taking both us and his easy classical sounds on a conceptual journey right across the cosmos.

Music Out Of The Moon is an album consisting of six songs, originally released on three 10-inch, 78 rpm records by bandleader Les Baxter, composer Harry Revel and theremin player Dr. Samuel J. Hoffman, released in 1947. It's considered the best-selling theremin record of all time.

"The granddaddy of the outer space exotica boom, Les Baxter's Music Out of the Moon remains a landmark by any measure -- the best-selling theremin record of all time, its celestial arrangements, wordless vocals, and idiosyncratic instrumentation established the template for dozens of space age pop records to follow, effectively defining the perception of what music from the cosmos would (or at least should) sound like. Employing a cellist, French horn player, and rhythm section alongside theremin maestro Dr. Samuel Hoffman, Baxter and composer Harry Revel capture a wonder and beauty beyond the ken of human experience. Though assembled from organic, earthbound elements, Music Out of the Moon delivers fully on the experience its title promises, transmitting lunar melodies to the hi-fis of suburban America." - AllMusic
