More than four decades have passed since a human first set foot on the Moon. Great strides have been made in our understanding of what is required to support an enduring human presence in space, as evidenced by progressively more advanced orbiting human outposts, culminating in the current International Space Station (ISS). However, of the more than 500 humans who have so far ventured into space, most have gone only as far as near-Earth orbit, and none have traveled beyond the orbit of the Moon.

Based On A True Story… is the highly anticipated 2013 album from Blake Shelton which features his current smash hit, "Sure Be Cool If You Did," which hit No. 1 on Billboard's Country Digital Tracks chart in its first week of release. "Sure Be Cool If You Did" created a buzz, with Entertainment Weekly calling it "ludicrously catchy" with an A- rating and Newsday saying it shows "exactly how The Voice' coach-judge manages to maintain his country cred while wading into the mainstream."

This disc contains two works that have been newly recorded. And they are strange works indeed. During the late 1930s Prokofiev wrote three pieces based on works of Pushkin – incidental music for a production of Pushkin's play, Boris Godunov; incidental music for a stage production of his Eugene Onegin; and music for The Queen of Spades. The latter was never finished and never produced, largely because of a change in attitudes from Stalin's government about what art works should focus on. As for the 1950 oratorio 'On Guard for Peace', the less said the better. This is one of those god-awful patriotic oratorios that Stalin's apparatchiks ordered by the yard from the country's composers. This one extols Stalin and the Soviet state, and recalls the sacrifices of WWII. History notes and lyrics in Russian and English can be found in the booklet.
