For many fans one of the most appealing aspects of Lost in Space is the
musical score. The jewels in the crown, naturally, are the theme scores
by John Williams. These themes have appeared in various compilations over
the years. However, other music and sound effects from Lost in Space have only
recently been made available with the much anticipated release of "The
Fantasy Worlds of Irwin Allen" television soundtracks CDs. This award
winning six pack CD collection contains two CDs devoted entirely to
Lost in Space, together with a third CD containing mainly Lost in Space
cast interviews and a special sound effects library.
The soundtracks and special effects have been digitally remastered to
sound as good as when the tracks were originally cut. The packaging and
well researched liner notes, containing many rare photos, adds further
value to a collection no serious Lost in Space collector can live without.
Rumor has it that an additional Lost in Space soundtrack is expected for
release in 1998.
Over the years several unlicensed audio cassettes of sound effects and
episodes have appeared. As is common with much unlicensed material,
the quality and production values of the cassettes are extremely poor. Several
audio copies of radio and TV interviews of the cast have also surfaced. These
again are generally of very poor quality.
