An Astromusical Odyssey Sounds Galactic

Round Trip Mars
An Astromusical Odyssey
Sounds Galactic
Arranged by John Keating
Producer: Ray Richardson and Tony D'Amato
Design: John Kosh
Engineer: Arthur Bannister
Photography by Ethan Russell
Phase 4 Stereo Spectacular
London SP 44154

Expensive book-fold jacket featuring almost no copy.

Nice mood/easy listening blend of "space" sound effects including non "computer" related effects such as flanging. The effects seem a bit "shoe-horned" into the arrangements. One of the more beautiful sounding tracks, Clair De Lune, features no effects at all.

Round Trip Mars, the last track on side 2, is the more cohesive blend of orchestral and sound effects.

Theme From '2001'
Spinning Wheel
Across The Universe
Up Up And Away
Good Morning Starshine

  1. I love this and the track you have chosen. I was curious about this one when you played something from it in a video. I'd love to find this.


Howdy! Thanks for leaving your thoughts!
