LP, Vinyl record album


4.90 25

A totally cool little record – like taking a TV time machine into the past – and stopping off in 60s London on the way! Barry Gray's a name best known for his famous soundtracks – including the music to Thunderbirds – but he's also scored plenty of commercials over the years too – often with the kind of weird, wild, and wonderful sounds used in his other recordings! The package is a great revelation – a whopping selection of over 80 short little numbers – music and songs for companies as diverse as Shell gasoline, Herald Cinema, Quaker Banana Mellows, Ridgeways Country House, Leeside Cakes, and many others – often with a short introduction from Gray, and some cool sound effects too. The Mike Sammes Singers provide vocals on some cuts – and the package is even groovier than usual for Trunk Records – and that's saying a lot!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
