The first disc features the soundtrack from early episodes of season 1, while the second disc features music from subsequent seasons of the show. Each has a distinctive sound and is worth listening to, although disc 1 is my favorite. The only disappointment I can cite is that the familiar "jet pack music" from season 1 was missing from this collection - a flute-laced melody that accompanied family members as they flew across terrain with the jet pack. Other than that, the collection is a treasury of great music and I highly recommend it!
The packaging for such an expensive two disk "limited edition" is a shame. The flimsy swing-out jewel box fell apart in my hands as I openred it. I had to replace it with an old two-disk stacker type I had left over from old software.
After the comprehensive 'let down' of the Lost In Space Movie back in 97/98, this disc was a welcome trip down memory lane for those of my generation who realise now that the music was not good because of Irwin Allen but because it forms some of the earliest and best work of Hollywood Legend 'John Williams' - referred to in Lost In Space as 'Johnny Williams' aka - Star Wars, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Missouri Breaks, etc.
Recommended for anyone who lived this show during it's initial and second or third airings.
