5.0 out of 5 stars Classic tunes from a master, 30 April 2012
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stand By For Action (Audio CD)
Barry Gray doesn't get the recognition he deserves.

His title tunes for classic programmes such as Joe 90, Thunderbirds, Stingray, Captain Scarlet, UFO and the earlier Space 1999 series all set the tone for what was to follow.

It's all about the music though. When present, the lyrical content wasn't great, but as a child that's not important.

This album also includes some of the background themes from within the episodes and if you like a bit of 60's electronic organ check out the incidental music for UFO.

Also includes some earlier programs that most listeners might not know, but since there are 40 tracks on this CD and by track 6 we get to Fireball XL5 they don't take up too much space.

Although when I say '40 tracks' that includes the 3 second track "Stand by for action!" which just says that and should in my opinion be part of the Stingray theme (38 seconds) where it would normally be heard when watching that program.

Most tracks are on the short side and it would have been nice to hear some longer versions, but even so this is a great album that brings back childhood memories of exiting TV.
