INTRADA Special Collection Volume 28

For this instalment of the Intrada Special Collection, Intrada presents a 2-CD set featuring the music from two Irwin Allen epics from 20th
Century Fox: THE LOST WORLD (1960) and FIVE WEEKS IN A BALLOON (1962).
Starring Claude Rains and Jill St. John, THE LOST WORLD chronicles the adventures of a professor on a perilous journey into the Amazon to investigate reports of living dinosaurs. In FIVE WEEKS IN A BALLOON, starring Red Buttons, Barbara Eden, and Richard Haydn, yet another professor embarks on another fanciful adventure -- this time taking flight in a balloon over Africa.

For THE LOST WORLD, Paul Sawtell & Bert Shefter provide colourful music ranging from soaring thematic ideas for the beautiful terrain to frightening action music for various dinosaur and hostile native attacks. On FIVE WEEKS IN A BALLOON, Sawtell (flying solo on this one) brings a rousing adventure-packed score to the action. At the centre is a rollicking theme song sung by The Brothers Four. Both scores are mastered from the original 35mm magnetic tracks warehoused at 20th
Century Fox. The elements were beginning to deteriorate so some minor wow is audible throughout. But for the most part, the audio quality remains satisfying. A very few sequences could not be salvaged but most of both scores has been preserved, including complete main titles and end titles plus all of the major set pieces.

This Intrada Special Collection release is limited to
1200 copies.
