The album was produced for the Seattle World's Fair in 1962. The music capitalizes on the theme of the fair which was a forward look into the future - the 21st Century. The Space Age. The predictions were perhaps a bit unrealistic with space travel to distant galaxies assumed to be commonplace, as an example. The composer portrayed the future with a score that may have been heard in conjunction with a sci-fi film score, but not a standard easy-listening album. Over the music, and introducing sections of the album, is the voice of the announcer - giving the audience a glimpse of the future as laid out in World's Fair exhibits and pavilions. The album was later released on other labels, but without the voice over of the announcer. Recently it was re-released with the voice over on a European made CD and LP. But this is the original. The heavy shiny cover with beautiful artwork is one reason alone to purchase the LP. The album is exceedingly difficult to find and should be collectible into the future.
