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. This
2 CD compilation features the very best tracks from previous
Added to this are a selection of unreleased tracks, titles
new to CD and a CD-Rom feature...
music for Thunderbirds remains one of the best-loved
scores in UK TV history and thanks to Silva Screen we've recently
had the chance to listen to much of it, lovingly restored
and packaged across two CDs. So do we really need a double
disc Best of... collection from the same company?
short answer is no. The extra material on disc one amounts
to just a few seconds which could/should have been included
on the first set of releases. Disc two, however, is a little
different in that it includes a whole load of CD-ROM content.
Basically it's copies of publicity material for Thunderbirds
from the last 40 years. A good idea in principal, but rather
disappointing in practice. Don't expect anything too exciting.
Disc two also contains a number of comedy songs featuring
the swinging pop pairing of Parker and Lady Penelope - perhaps
the Sonny and Cher of puppets? Again, this is hardly the stuff
of dreams and really won't be calling out for repeat playing
although it's still nice to have, I guess.
all in all, this release offers little new of real interest
to fans of the show although it's still hard to complain too
much as the music remain great no matter how many times you
