Originally a bbc serial, quatermass and the pit (released in the us as five million years to earth) was made by hammer film productions in 1967 as a sequel to their earlier films the quatermass experiment and quatermass 2. Composer Tristram Cary (1925-2008), had previously scored ealing studios’ the ladykillers amongst other films and went on to write another soundtrack for hammer, blood from the mummy’s tomb (1971 this vinyl release features the full soundtrack to the film, a tense and atmospheric score for full orchestra. the electronic cues from quatermass and the pit are available on a separate rsd release (see below) “i was not mad about doing the film because hammer wanted masses of electronic material and a great deal of orchestral music. but i had three kids, all of which were at fee-paying schools, so i needed every penny i could get! …. t he main use of electronics in quatermass, i think, was the violent shaking, vibrating sound that the "thing in the tunnel" gave off… it was not a terribly challenging sound to do, though i never played it very loud because i didn't want to destroy my speakers – i did have hopes of destroying a few cinema loudspeaker systems, though it never happened” tristram cary. lp -
