Following on from the hugely successful recent release of music from Thunderbirds comes this equally excellent round up of all that was best from Captain Scarlet. Not as instantly recognisable as that of Thunderbirds, this CD does explore many of the themes that to my knowledge have never before been released. Just reminicise those glory days of your youth and those now of my young son who is an equally avid fan of all things Gerry Anderson. I hear he is in the process of recreating Captain Scarlet in a revolutinary new format, I am sure with Gerry's track record it will be a huge success. However, can anyone possibly equal the sheer genius and creativity of Barry Gray music to go with it? Sadly I cannot see it. I look forward to the next release of Barry Gray's music, I do hope it will be either Space 2001 or UFO.
This is what I have been looking for since childhood. The complete music for Captain Scarlet. From the opening 21st Century sting, down to the end titles song from the group Spectrum, this CD just brings it all back. There is even an extra special ending to the CD which I will not give away, but Scarlet fans will just love. Buy this CD because you will love every second of it. "Spectrum Is Green"
At last, just when the Thunderbirds theme was becoming over exposed, new music from the world of Gerry Anderson ! This is a really refreshing album... The themes & suites from Captain Scarlet are better then ever. I am really amazed at the quality of the recordings, the editers & producers did a superb job on this release. I hope this will lead to other releases, such as JOE 90 & UFO ! Eric (From Montreal,Quebec)
