HOFFMAN, SAMUEL J.: The Theremin (3 CD box)
A box containing reissues of 3 proto lounge music records featuring Samuel Hoffman, Hollywood's resident theremin player:' Music out of the Moon' (released in 1947 on 3 78 rpm records (a massive hit at the time), the 1948 'Perfume set to music' and 1950's Music for Peace of Mind' - here all presented as facsimiles of the early '50s LP reissues with a typical Basta booklet: 28pp of very thoroughly researched and illustrated material about the Theremin and Hoffman, including a filmography and discography. The music itself is light, loungy and exotic, arranged and conducted variously by Les Baxter and Billy May. A historic collection, of great interest to scholars, the curious - and lounge aficionados.
