You may think this an unusual title for us to stock, and I would agree however we couldn't not. This film and score triggered our nostaligic side. 

John Barry doesn't let us down with another superb (yet early attempt at a) sci-fi soundtrack. The film is wonderfully kitsch and rates extremley highly on the cult circuit. A diamond in the rough.

Previously released on compact disc by Silva Screen Records but out of circulation for many years, BUYSOUNDTRAX Records presents the original motion picture soundtrack to STARCRASH, featuring music composed and conducted by John Barry, newly remastered by Digital Outland, reprising the original program of the previous compact disc release and including a special suite of music from the film.

Released in 1978, STARCRASH, originally called THE ADVENTURES OF STELLA STAR, is an Italian knockoff of STAR WARS, lovingly produced with a fraction of the budget or resources necessary to be convincing. But what the film lacks in production value, it more than compensates with warmth and charm, due in part to its casting and to the presence of John Barry's music. STARCRASH tells the story of Stella Star and Akton, notorious galactic smugglers employed by the Emperor of the Galaxy to track down the location of Count Zarth Arn, who is developing a dangerous weapon that threatens the entire galaxy! Working alongside Thor, Chief of the Imperial Police and his android sidekick, the six-gun packing Police Robot Elle, the quartet scour the corners of the Haunted Stars, encountering Amazons on horseback, android gladiators, prehistoric Trogs and a giant metal Guardian straight out of a Ray Harryhausen film. For the music, the producers turned to composer John Barry, then world-renown because of his work on the James Bond films. STARCRASH represents an early foray for the composer into the realm of science fiction and he would soon return again when he worked in 1979 on THE BLACK HOLE, Disney s attempt to compete with rival studios in the wake of STAR WARS and MOONRAKER, that year s entry in the James Bond series, which featured many science fiction elements.
