Tomita: The Planets album for sale Product Description



Tomita: The Planets album for sale by Tomita / Isao Tomita was released May 25, 1991 on the RCA Victor label. This was the most controversial Tomita album, where he uses Holst's spectacular, mystical suite The Planets as a launching pad for what amounts to a simulated spaceship trip through the solar system. Tomita: The Planets songs Hence the title The Tomita Planets, which did not deter the Holst estate from trying (unsuccessfully) to pull this recording off the market at the time. When Tomita sticks to what Holst wrote, he follows every turn and bend of the score, save for a big cut in the last part of Jupiter and an eviscerated Uranus that nearly disappears altogether. Tomita: The Planets CD music contains a single disc with 5 songs.   ...See Full Description

A True Electronic Music Pioneer
One of the highlights of the 1970s, along with many now classic rock songs and landmark movies, Tomita's 'The Planets' was, and still is, a magnificent work.

Machine music for the Gods
This Dolby Pro Logic Surround mix is incredible. I own the LP and the stereo CD and this is miles beyond both of these.

Good transfer from analog to CD
Tomita takes electronic almost to the reality of real world musical instruments. He is a master of making music out of sounds.

EXCELLENT!!
Tomita's unique version of "Planets" is a MUST OWN for anyone familiar with his style and vision. Ultra-clean recording that has been well preserved considering it's age of original release.

Shame about the Planets
