Destination Moon 50 Years: First Man On Moon on CD

The 34 tracks, some of which are extremely hard to get, reflect the adventurous, sometimes almost naive approach to the theme of the moon landing, against the background of the competition between the USA and the USSR from the 1950s onwards! It contains interesting audio documents, like the announcement of US President John F. Kennedy in September 1962, as well as the famous words by astronaut Neil Armstrong on July 20, 1969! Extremely rare recordings can be heard, like Rocket To The Moon by Johnny Kay from Belgium, or Glenn Willings' Race To Space! Also included are famous songs that take up the theme rather smilingly, such as Anita O'Day's Fly Me To The Moon, and The Rocket Man with the Russian melody from the Spotnicks! In addition there are some orchestral recordings that express the feeling of a flight to the moon, like the orchestra of Les Baxter with Lunar Rhapsody! The first man on the moon We have created our own compilation for the 50th anniversary of the first manned moon landing. And even if some conspiracy theorists doubt it, the theme is simply too beautiful, too exciting. Special songs from the preparation time for the moon landing during the Cold War, from the '50s to the early '60s, are meticulously compiled here. Moon-O-Rama Let this CD take you on a great journey into space and on to the moon! Rare songs and great hits combined, carefully remastered and of course there are liner notes to every single song, as well as many illustrations in the 28-page booklet!
