Day The Earth Stood Still (with bonus tracks)

CD (Item 141570) 20th Century/La La Land, 1951 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock


Klaatu Barada Nikto! This is a beautiful reissue of the legendary Theremin soundtrack to the sci-fi classic The Day The Earth Stood Still . The film was one of the first to use the Theremin, and it pioneered the sorts of sounds that would later become standard in the world of sci-fi. Bernard Herrmann composed the orchestral passages, and had help conducting them from Lionel and Alfred Newman. Dr. Samuel J. Hoffman played theremin, very much in the classic style that he used on Capitol albums from the same period. The whole thing's incredibly dark and spooky.  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Used CD Grade

We only use the grade "Used CD" for non-new CDs. This all-encompassing grade was chosen it because we only buy and offer used CDs in the best possible condition.

When you purchase a used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use, but if there are significant details or defects we will describe the item's condition (just like we do with LPs), so look for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details before ordering.

All of our used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. After you receive a used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly. If it does not, you can request a return for a full refund.

Bernard Herrmann

Bernard Herrman's classic spooky score to this great Hitchcock thriller. The music is often very intense, to perfectly suit the film's tone – and has that great jagged edge that Herrman brought to some of his other best soundtrack scoring. The tracks are long, and have a pretty edgy sound ... CD
