In the 1960s, a young Johnny Williams, fresh off a stint in the U.S. Air Force, provided the musical scores for a handful of episodes of the classic sci-fi series “Lost in Space”, including the show’s theme song. This music represents a peek at how Williams developed his approach and style that would go on for generations to come.

Lost in Space is an American science fiction television series, created and produced by Irwin Allen, which originally aired between 1965 and 1968 on CBS. The series was inspired by the 1812 novel The Swiss Family Robinson and a comic book published by Gold Key Comics titled Space Family Robinson. The series follows the adventures of the Robinsons, a pioneering family of space colonists who struggle to survive in the depths of space. The show ran for 83 episodes over three seasons.
