Format: Audio CD
Trunk records and most noticeably headman Jonny Trunk is gradually building a raft of excellent releases of half forgotten treasures .Coming hot on the heels of the superb re-issue of the soundtrack to "Blood On Satan's Claw" and Basil Kirchin,s "Abstractions Of The Industrial North" comes music from two of Oliver Postgates children shows.
The Heath Robinson enterprise known as Smallfilms gave us such enduring shows as "The Clangers" who were blessed by a Trunk release in 2001 "Pogles' Wood" and "Ivor the Engine" are now included on this latest CD that assembles the rest of his work. The music for all of them was written by Vernon Elliott, a founder member of the Philharmonia Orchestra, and occasional performer at the Royal Opera House, who also had a taste for jazz.
The programmes originally broadcast in the 1960,s are from an era when children's programmes and music didn't have to resort to gaudy colours, jingly repetitive music and brash storytelling . The music here led by the conspicuous bassoon of Elliott is a beguiling and intoxicatingly organic experience. Elliott was clearly a highly inventive and resourceful composer, not restricting himself to an instrumental palette but going so far as to record sound effects for the show, from coal being shovelled to the actual sound of Ivor in motion." Cruising Theme" is the most joyous thing I've heard all week while the piano /flute workouts on "Donkey Theme" and "Fast Theme" make you want to skip around like a toddler after overdosing on E numbers. Not a good idea for a bloke in his forties. You even get to hear outtakes as Elliott and his artists try out different techniques , a sort of running commentary that can actually become a little tiresome as it interrupts the flow and atmosphere engendered by the music.

This is an odd record, and no mistake. Ivor and the Pogles are distinct in sound and mood but still feel united by the virtue of both being from the same pen, Vernon Elliot. In a way this sums up the TV series as well -- they're very different but they're from the same pen, Oliver Postgate, so they feel unified in some way.

The content of the disc is much more Pogles than Ivor, despite the cover, and the Ivor material is much more memorable. Of course, I love anything with a bassoon, so I'm biased. There are several tracks of spot effects for both shows (such as Ivor's distinctive driving sounds) and I'd have rather have had these separately to get a unified musical suite.

Overall, a sweet, charming album that'll appeal to anyone who's ever seen either show.

One song missing from this collection seems to be the fine "Bread and Butter and Honey" sung by Mr Pogle and Pippin while they and Tog dance around a bemused Mrs Pogle.

It's entirely unorchestrated and is essentially a fine folk song, that one could imagine singing standing on a table in a 16th century tavern.

I know some reviewers have been disappointed by the fact that this cd contains as much Pogles Wood music as Ivor the Engine. Personally, I also wish it was more clearly described, as I would have bought this earlier.
Pogles Wood is THE forgotten masterpiece, both of Vernon Elliot's career and that of Oliver Postagte and Peter Firmin. For many years I thought I had imagined the show, until it became available I think in the late 80s. Music is my life long pasasion, and when I watched the shows again, I realised how evocative and creative music's use in the programmes was.
Obviously, the inclusion of Ivor the Engine is also excellent, but the original Pogles music is a delightful trip back for anyone wanting to recapture a spirit of playful, innocent childhood television, made with a sense of wonder by a man driven by a wish to entertain and delight, and not a committee of educational experts...
Treat yourself!

Very happy with the product, its packaging and the early delivery date. My son is a big fan of Ivor as am I - just need an audio CD of the stories themselves now - any recommendations?
