Destination Jurassic Land – 33 Artifacts from Times Before Christ (CD) 1‐CD with 20‐page booklet, 33 tracks. Total playing time approx. 77 min.

Stone Age
Stone Age and dinosaurs are not just classic themes of older B‐movies. The film series ‘Jurassic Park’ in particular is proof of that. The music industry also devoted itself to the topic ‐ and we have compiled the best examples, primarily from the Rock ‘n’ Roll era, but also from later years in the appropriate style.

Prehistoric Plateau
The CD starts and ends with a version of Prehistoric Plateau. What do both versions have in common? English composer Arthur Billingsley is involved as a musician on both recordings. He was a member of the iconic 1980s band, The Blubbery Hellbellies, which recorded the original in rockabilly style. In 2010, he covered himself as Big Art Peters. Both tracks are highlights on this compilation. In addition, there are a lot of little‐known artists from the 1950s and ’60s like The Pre‐Historics, Terry Wayne, and The Majestics, most of their songs appearing here on CD for the first time. Rare recordings like the 1966 movie trailer ‘One Million Years BC’, the ‘Flintstones’ theme tune and the 1977 TV highlight ‘Captain Caveman And The Teen Angels’ round out the program. The CD comes with a 20‐page color booklet and many rare photos and nostalgic memorabilia.
