Composer Don Dorsey's description of the music that opens this album could also describe the album itself, for the musical time warp it creates allows us to take a short cut through more than a decade of popular space music. In the years that separate the earliest music heard here from the latest, a dizzying profusion of spaceships, astronauts and extra-terrestrials (not all of them cute and cuddly) have flashed across America's movie and TV screens. Though it might seem that they merely fell from the sky, in fact they owe much of their existence to a supremely imaginative vision. Time Warp, released in 1984, was the first in a series of space thriller recordings on Telarc. Other recordings in this series include such crossover hits as Star Tracks I and II (CD-80094, CD-80146), Fantastic Journey (CD-80231), and The Great Fantasy Adventure Album (CD-80342). This collection of movie themes, including music from 2001, A Space Odyssey, Star Trek, Alien, Star Wars, and many more, takes a tour through popular space music. Dorsey's synthesized work, Ascent, opens the disc—sending the listener on a fantastic musical journey through time and space.
