A great find by my good friend JesseRobot : a vinyl copy of “Plan Nine From Outer Space. Original Soundtrack Recording”, released by Pendulum Records (EROS 009) in 1978. Click on the images for a good view of the front and back of the album :
Great! What’s even better are the liner notes on the back of the record, alledgedly by Ed himself, but dated december 1978 : the month he died (hm). But whatever the case may be, they’re a great read. You can take a closer look by clicking the images below :
The record features library tracks by Gordon Zahler (1926-1975), a significant innovator in the development of music and sound effects in post war Hollywood, despite the fact that he was paralysed from the neck down due to a childhood accident!
Other credits as a sound and music supervisor include the TV Series “Popeye The Sailor”, “The New 3 Stooges”, “Tarzan” and “The New Adventures Of Superman”, as well as the excellent movie “Shock Corridor”. More info about Gordon Zahler can be found in his biography, written by his nephew Chip Jacobs : “Wheeling The Deal : The Outrageous Legend of Gordon Zahler, Hollywood’s Flashiest Quadriplegic” (Behler Publications, 2006).
Thanks to JesseR for the excellent scans!
