Press Release from La-La Land:
La-La Land Records, Synthesis Entertainment, 20th Century Studios and Legendary Pictures proudly present THE TIME TUNNEL: ORIGINAL TELEVISION SOUNDTRACK COLLECTION – VOL. 1: LIMITED EDITION, a deluxe 3-CD collection of original music from the classic Irwin Allen 1966-1967 sci-fi/time-travel adventure television series!
This beloved series chronicled the time-traveling adventures of two scientists flung into varied pasts and futures via a top-secret, underground government base called Project Tic-Toc. THE TIME TUNNEL was producer Irwin Allen’s favorite series among the ones he produced, and unlike LOST IN SPACE, VOYAGE TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA or LAND OF THE GIANTS, it would require the show’s scores to reflect not only the series’ overall sci-fi drama and adventure, but also the varied pasts and presents each episode would visit. Thankfully, a group of talented composers was more than up to this challenge!
This first volume collection of original music from THE TIME TUNNEL features dynamic work from acclaimed composers Johnny Williams, Lyn Murray, Paul Sawtell and Robert Drasnin. who demonstrate fine examples of exciting 1960s television scoring. The show’s pilot “Rendezvous With Yesterday” kicks off this deluxe presentation, which also showcases music from the episodes “One Way to the Moon,” “End of the World,” “The Day the Sky Fell In,” The Last Patrol,” and “Crack of Doom,” with additional music cues also featured, including the debut of the actual Williams’ “time travel” music that played at the beginning of most episodes. Limited to 1000 units, this 3-CD set is produced by Jeff Bond and Neil S. Bulk, executive produced for 20th Century Studios by Mike Matessino, and digitally edited and mastered from original mono recordings by James Nelson. The exclusive liner notes are by Jeff Bond and the art design is by Mark Banning.
This release is dedicated to the late and greatly missed Kevin Burns. His undying passion for all things Irwin Allen made our Irwin Allen soundtrack releases possible, including this one, which he was thrilled to make available to the fans.
