Art of the Cover - Bob Crewe & Charles Fox's "Barbarella Soundtrack" (1968)





For the first time on CD, it's the Soundtrack to the cult classic "Barbarella".

The collection features music from the Bob Crewe Generation and includes Bonus Tracks, Radio Commercials plus a Fold-Out Inlay with a Jane Fonda Poster plus a completely original essay by noted film music writer, Randall D. Larson. The booklet is also packed with photos.

An absolute must for all film music collectors.




Beautiful packaging and liner notes detailing the arrival of Bob Crewe & Charles Fox's soundtrack to the 1968 cult hit "Barbarella", a French-Italian co-production that featured Jane Fonda as an Astral-Navigatrix whose speciality is L-O-V-E. The happy-'60's soundtrack (with vocals by both Crewe and a group named The Glitterhouse) has become scarce and expensive in the last ten years, so this release is quite wonderful to own, especially when augmented by a handful of bonus tracks (from an instrumental album of "Barbarella" songs by The Young Lovers) and radio promo spots.This is grooovy stuffff!!
