Science Fiction Sound Effects Record

This eerie album opens with high pitched sounds followed by crackling and rustling noises. While what produced these noises is not identified, they are assigned possibilities such as “Sound of approach of Missile or Creature” and “Launching Site”: it is left to our imagination how these sounds were created. Recorded by Mel Kaiser in 1959 in the height of science fiction popularity, this futuristic compilation is an interesting listen. No liner notes.
