OST 02.11.2011 – X-Ray Eyes Special

This weekly programme is dedicated to film music, TV music, library music and related recordings, and is hosted by Jonny Trunk. Each week The OST Show welcomes a guest (a collector, composer, director, artist) or specialises in a specific film music genre or composer. Today Jonny is proud to be able to play the first ever full recording of Les Baxter’s score to The Man With X Ray Eyes. A mixture of exotics, oddness and bizarre instrumentation, this superb sci fi horror score for Corman’s 1963 classic (also known simply as “X”) is well worth the 48 year wait. He also has an unreleased Schifrin score but you’ll have to tune in to hear all about it!
