4.0 out of 5 stars Unique 15 Nov 2004
Format:Audio CD
One of the greatest fanfares ever written introduces this album, followed by some unique incidental music that can only ever haver come from one pen.... somewhere between the classic recordings of Ron Goodwin and the compositions of Toru Takemitsu. It's a richly nostalgic experience at a decent price. The fact that the series had a peculiar atmosphere helps, too; that 70's high tech gothic horror atmosphere Doctor Who also had, and the music reflects this. It's a great kitch pleasure to have that wonderful music from one episode where a tableful of skeletons comes alive and causes a sort of religious conversion in two characters. The track starts of like Mozart and ends like something from 'Hair'!
The only downside (if you choose to see it that way) is that most cues form the gloomy climaxes before comercial breaks- the result is that you can almost see the picture dimming as you listen. But the almost philosophical lead-ins are often beautiful. Funny that the end titles are upbeat though: the poor inhabitants of Moonbase Alpha are still trapped up there!

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique Genius of Barry Grey 11 Aug 2008
Format:Audio CD
One of my favourite soundtracks by Barry Grey ......a modern 70s classical masterpiece .....no less.
As aforementioned in other reviews it is in places dark and foreboding ..... this all adds to the mood and excitement of it
and unless by default you have depressive disposition .......This in all is an outstanding collection of musical pieces
which I'm sure(like myself)you will find enjoyable as a complete collection.........

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Retro/Future Score 17 Nov 2009
By Davidp.
Format:Audio CD
Space:1999 - the series - may be one of the most controversial SF shows ever. People either love it, or they hate it... there seems to be little middle ground. As a kid I was thrilled with the series, although even then I could see the weaknesses in science, story, and characterization. But from a purely visual and aural standpoint, the first series rarely disappointed.

This was especially true when it came to the music. As many fans know, Barry Gray scored only 4 episodes - the rest being rounded out by reusing his cues for those episodes, plus liberal doses of library music. This disc gives a good overview of the magnificent music written specifically for the series, as well as a sampling of some of those library cues. As a previous reviewer said, the ultimate soundtrack to the series was released several years ago by the Fanderson organization ( which one had to join as a member to be able to order ) and is sadly out of print. Copies can be found on the internet, often selling for prohibitive prices. Unless you are a diehard collector, willing to shell out a good sized portion of your paycheck, this single disc is the way to go.

Sound quality is superb, and in some cases surpasses the previously mentioned two disc set, as several of the tracks have been remastered to remove wow, flutter, and distortion that could be heard on the Fanderson set. The main title was remixed to make it truer to the on-screen version, and the tracks from the episode "Black Sun" are in stereo on CD here for the first time ever. The previous release featured the episode's complete score, but only as a monophonic version, as many of the multitrack masters for that particular episode have been lost. For that alone, this disc is worth owning, even if you have the Fanderson set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Space 1999 delivers 27 Sep 2006
Format:Audio CD
I have just brought this today and have alreay listened to it twice. I love it. The opening theme is one of the best opening themes in television history (so much better then Star Trek, Doctor Who and even more so, it is better then Gray's own theme to Thunderbirds).

The episodes that Gray wrote full scores for are some of my favourite episodes, so when listening to the music, it is very eay to visualise what would be happening were I watching the actual show (especially Breakway and Matter of Life and Death).

One of the best pieces of music on this CD was not actually written by Gray, but adapted by him for the episode "The Testament of Arkadia" It is probably the most beautiful pieces music I have ever listened to and the vocal harmonies towards the end just blew me away.

One reviewer said that this CD isn't that great because it represents a claustrophobic feel towards the series on the moon being blasted out of orbit and being sent off into space. I feel that adds to the genius of Barry Gray and the orchestral feel that is presented on this soundtrack allows you to take in that feeling of being on Alpha.

I think everyone should buy this CD but if you are a fan of Barry Gray and of Space 1999, then you should definetly buy it.
