Journey to Infinity

Written and directed by Charles T. Reece

(Audio Master AMS-101)

This pre-Apollo 11 record (no date is listed) is intended to inspire the listener with dreams of mankind's destiny, combining the sounds of rocket launches with orchestral music. "You will hear the sounds of the wounded rocket in flight—its gasping breath as each of its multiple stages ignite, burn then are extinguished—bring to the discriminating high fidelity enthusiast an exhilaration which you have never known," writes Douglas M. Dederer of Variety Magazine (sic all of the above). Most interesting is a verbal introduction by Dr. Wernher Von Braun in his thick German accent:

"Since ancient times, since the beginning of man's ability to think, he has gazed at the heavens and dreamed that someday he would travel through space and explore the moon and planets which have eternally captivated his imagination. Man's ancient dream of space travel has ended. It's no longer a dream, but a reality, for at last man has in his possession the rocket. In the near future, a great rocket will thunder from the Earth to carry man to the moon. What he will find there and what other countless planets he will eventually explore is unknown. But that he will be going, however, is a certainty."
