The Brain From Planet Arous/Teenage Monster (MMM-1968) proves that dreams can come true. Walter Greene's amazingly inventive score for the 1957 John Agar/Joyce Meadows B-movie classic is here in amazing fidelity and in its 43-minute entirety. Easily the greatest score for a film about a giant, evil, floating, sex-crazed brain from outer space, the music provides endless fun and incredible artistry. Greene scored the movie without a string section, instead incorporating four saxophones into his powerhouse orchestra.
In case this isn't more fun than your brain can stand, 1957's Teenage Monster might not be a classic flick, but Greene's background score can now be heard on its own. This 33-minute soundtrack is an MMM bonus that will help shine a spotlight on an incredibly underrated composer who has never had an album devoted to his work. This Monstrous Movie Music release contains a 20-page liner book discussing all aspects of the music, as well as containing copies of some of the written scores. Striking cover art by the renowned Robert Aragon.
