First Man On The Moon
Here's an interesting record, a commemorative 45 record of the first moon landing. I think it represents the optimism of the Space Race extremely well. You've gotta love the narration by Hugh Downs and the use of Kennedy's famous speech about going to the moon. I also love the film-score type music accompanying the dramatic moments. Notice how the picture sleeve and the MGM logo are parallel with that of 2001: A Space Odyssey, released a year earlier by MGM. The artwork is staggeringly similar to the poster art (Perhaps the same MGM artist). I also love the modernized MGM Lion logo, which is in the film as well. Enjoy.
