BARRY GRAY Thunderbirds (2020 UK/EU limited edition 37-track 2-LP set pressed on Sky Blue Vinyl. Gatefold picture sleeve featuring all the characters from International Rescue that youknow and love! Sealed with a rice-paper obi. Following releases of the UFO and Supercar soundtracks, Thunderbirds is the third in the series from Gerry and Sylvia Anderson’s iconic TV shows. It is newly compiled, mastered and designed by thecreative teamat Fanderson (The Official Gerry and Sylvia Anderson Appreciation Society), who have access to Barry Gray’s original studio tapes. The album features 37 tracks from 19 episodes (series 1 and 2), including the Thunderbirds main theme and closing titles. The tracks were not programmed to follow the episode order but to achieve an integrated listening experience. The best bits of the sixties’ soundscapes are here. The Thunderbirds soundtrack is an effective time capsule as Gray’s music veers into British spy genre, Latin pop, exotica, urban jazz and military marches. Beautifully composed and conducted, the score reflects the moods of the scenes, from dangerous to romantic and no-nonsense to silly. F-A-B !).
BARRY GRAY UFO (2019 UK limited edition 21-track double album 2-LP pressed on SHADO Purple Vinyl – the original soundtrack for Gerry Anderson’s live action television show. To complement the series, the Anderson’s frequent musical collaborator Barry Gray created a multi-faceted score that gave the programme its own musical identity. Elegantly crafted and a firm favourite with Barry Gray fans, the sound of UFO, particularly its ethereal ‘World Music’ closing credits is, quite simply, a joy. Includes the bonus recording Trampoline, performed by The Spencer Davis Group from the episode Ordeal. Gatefold picture sleeve with hype-stickered rice paper belly-band. Fabulous).
