Fantastica Music From Outer Space - Russ Garcia

Fantastica

Liberty LRP 3084
1959

Fantastica is a wonderful blend of science fiction movie sounds effects, soundtrack styled orchestration and exotica.

Of course, you can't please everyone. A critic at the time of release, Ralph Gleason didn't care for this project saying that it was "More like the soundtrack of a horror movie than anything else".

Garcia creates a journey for the listener and blends one tracks magically into the next. Sit back close your eyes and float effortlessly through space in the middle of this fantastic soundtrack!

Above is a scan of the stereo jacket. Sound effects on this release travel from channel to channel for greater to make for an even better trip through space! Awesome!

  2. Just bought and listened to the 1959 original Liberty stereo vinyl LP. Great conceptual anthem for the dawn of The Space Age!
