Moon Child

“Moon Child” was originally a track on the Ventures 1964 album “Ventures in Space”. The tune was composed by Julius Wechter, a vibes and marimba player who worked extensively with Herb Alpert and also led the Baja Marimba Band. He wrote “Spanish Flea” and was a regular member of the Tijuana Brass. One of the ironies of these “Mexican” groups was that Alpert, Wechter and most of the members of both bands were Jewish.
“Ventures in Space” was released to take advantage of the popularity of the instrumental “Telstar” Written by Joe Meek, “Telstar” was a huge hit as released by the Tornadoes, a British group.
