Atlantis In Hi-Fi

Atlantis In Hi-Fi
The Bavarian State Symphony Orchestra
Directed by Carl Wolfgang
Composed and scored by Alexander Laszlo
Carlton Record Corporation LP 12/106
1958

This is the Forbidden Island (C. B. Griffith's/Columbia Pictures) soundtrack album.

From the back cover: Atlantis... the fabled Lost Continent? Atomic Submarines? What fantasies of science fiction have not already become realities?

Sounds like the makings of a great record! The album is lushly orchestrated, but may I suggest Martin Denny's Forbidden Island instead for a more "exotica" adventure.

  1. AH, sounds promising as Exotica but you recommend Denny instead? ok, good to know!
