Thunderbirds are GO!
In the autumn of 1965 a new television series hit the screen which took Gerry Anderson’s productions into a new dimension. Forty years on, Thunderbirds remains as popular today as it was then with Barry Gray’s music a key element.
The Best Of Thunderbirds is the latest release in the series that brings to CD the original television recordings of Barry Gray’s music for Gerry Anderson’s classic 1960s shows
This 2 CD compilation features the very best tracks from previous releases
Thunderbirds and Thunderbirds 2.
Added to this are a selection of unreleased tracks, titles new to CD and a CD-Rom feature.
Century 21 Records’ Mini Albums playing at 33RPM were a popular pocket money buy in the 1960s and three are featured here on CD for the first time offering selections from Lady Penelope Themes, Great Themes From Thunderbirds and F.A.B. – an original story especially written for that album.
The CD-ROM feature is a treasure trove for all Gerry Anderson fans featuring extremely rare promotional literature for the series covering the last 40 years, much of it being shown to the public for the very first time.
All music has been carefully restored and edited from composer Barry Gray’s personal musical archive. Total running time 1 hour, 19 minutes, 41 seconds.
