That's it!!--that's definitely the LP I'm thinking of. I'd love to get that
on CD as well.
I also knew a guy that had an album called "2001...Volume 2" which was music
inspired by the film. Essentially, it was "Also Spach..." second movement, a
different Ligeti piece (perhaps "Nouvelle Adventures") etc.
Oh well; back to restoring the "Andromeda Strain" soundtrack.

A bit off-topic, but I have the LP of this "alternate" 2001 music. It
not directly related to the movie, but rather a spinoff album. Or
it did pre-date the movie. There is no date on the cover, as Columbia
never did that. So here are detail from the sleeve:
ORMANDY / Philadelphia Orchestra / BERSTEIN / New York Philharmonic /
Perform Selections from 2001 A Space Odyssey
With the Greggs Smith Singers
Added Electronic Effects by Morton Subotnik
Music from Blomdahl's Opera
ANIARA / An Epic of Space Flight in 2038 A.D.
Electronic and Concrete Effects By Swedish Radio
Stereo MS 7176
