A fantastic compilation of themes and incidental music from all the Anderson classic series of the 60's (and early '70s).. everything from Four Feather Falls (even I am too young to remember that one) via Supercar, Fireball, Stingray, Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet, Joe 90 etc etc. I love this CD , it takes me back to being a kid again and its great to have these ORIGINAL versions in such excellent quality. All together now; "I wish I was a spacemen, the fastest guy alive"........ :-)

Excellent all original compositions by Mr Gray for Gerry Anderson's classic TV shows of the 60s and 70s. Unlike a lot of other compilation CDs which have been remixed, all the tunes on this CD are the versions as per when the programmes were originally transmitted.

Loved it. As someone born in 1960, I grew up with the anticipation of a moon landing and Gerry Anderson's vision of the future. The music was such an integral part of these series, Barry Gray your music brought these figures to life and defined the mood.

The music for what is just for puppet shows is excellent and shows how music can enhance a show. The CD covers all Andersons TV shows, though the inclusion of some incidental music from various episodes makes it less attractive.

What a gem - all original recordings plus some great stereo mixes from this outstanding TV composer. Decent sleeve notes round off an excellent package - don't hesitate buy it now!

Stand by for ACTION! -- and get ready for a fun trip down sci-fi memory lane for those over 40! And for those under 40, this is the soundtrack to many a youth who grew up watching the mostly-ITC-made works of Gerry and Sylvia Anderson (the only exception on here being Granada TV's puppet western "Four Feather Falls"), with Barry Gray as their musical maestro, and very enjoyable music in its own right. Be it the "get-along-little-dogies" Bing Crosby-style vocals of "Four Feather Falls," the boisterously playfulness of "Supercar", the rock-and-roll singalong fun of "Fireball XL5's" end titles, the bold thundering of "Stingray's" opening theme (and "Stingray's" maudlin-yet-lovable "Aqua Marina" closing theme), the unforgettably bold upright march of the "Thunderbirds", spy-jazzy tracks like the themes from "Captain Scarlet" (the Spectrum end titles song), "Joe 90", and "UFO", the quaintly churchy-and-jazzy "Secret Service" theme, or the boldly-blended rock-classical mixture of the experimental "Space:1999", this collection will not disappoint. Stand by with your payment, and order "Stand By For Action!" -- and stand by for some awesome tunes! F-A-B!

This album is a real treat for the fans, featuring music from actual episodes and the clip music from Thunderbirds prior to the main titles.

I love this album, it's well worth the price, is a great tribute to Barry Gray and a must have for fans of the Anderson series.

Super collection. Some do sound like re-recordings. But, hey. It sounds everything one would want. And, above all, the price was right.
