Keep This Frequency Clear!

Gerry Anderson Presents: Thunderbirds & Captain Scarlet On One Record! (1968?)

Q: Can one a single disc of ordinary black vinyl contain so much excitement?

A: Yes, but only just.

If you are of a certain age and remember those UK chart-topping house singles from the late 80's by acts like M|A|R|R|SColdcut and Bomb The Bass, then you will probably spot many vocal samples liberated from this recording. It only adds to the listening pleasure as far as I'm concerned. The score interspersing all the high drama comes, as always, from the late great Barry Gray.

My pleasure as always. Good to know people are still digging deep into this blog. I still maintain Ripping Yarns ain't dead, nor sleeping, just having an extra long lie-in.
