Product Description

**Double LP with archival photographs and liner notes by Jonny Trunk and Soul Jazz's Stuart Baker. Features music by Pentangle, The Tony Hatch Sound, Roy Budd, John Barry, and The Laurie Johnston Orchestra among others. Nineteen tracks total** "'TV Sound And Image' provides an overview of British composers who worked in television, film and music libraries the second half of the 20th Century... Aside from John Barry, whose work on the James Bond films made him a household name, or Tony Hatch and Laurie Johnson, the majority of composers featured here - Simon Park, Keith Mansfield, Reg Tilsley, Syd Dale, Keith Papworth - remain relatively unknown. And yet ironically they have created some of the most recognisable songs in British popular culture, their music widely disseminated on television. A quick roll call of these would include Neil Richardson (who composed the theme tune to 'Mastermind') and Barry Stoller (who wrote 'Match Of The Day'). The Simon Park Orchestra's' Eye Level', theme song to the BBC series 'Van der Valk', reached number one in 1973. CCS's cover of Led Zeppelin's 'Whole Lotta Love' was the theme tune to 'Top Of The Pops'. However, this album is not just a stroll through the TV memories of the mind. It's an exploration of the serious contribution that these creative musicians have on the landscape of popular music in Britain. Here then is a guide to the amazing music of many of the composers (both well known and obscure) responsible for some of the most widely known music ever to come out of Britain in the second half of the 20th Century.
