Some of the synth exists only on the final sound mix, i.e. the episodes themselves. Or so it said about another track created specifically for the CD since the original was unusable.

I mean, in that case, let it go. . .

Well I have secretly taped conversations to prove you wrong! Actually Simon, I wasn't being entirely serious. In any event, it's wonderful to have the music available in high-street record shops - unthinkable only a few years back. Then again it's taken thirty years for this to happen, so it's about bleedin' time!

Sad to hear that the synth tracks had to be re-recorded for the Wadsworth double CD (I don't have it yet). I wonder what could have happened there.


Apparently some of the synth was added 'live' at the dubbing stage of the original Year 2 episodes, rather than being recorded with the rest of the scores. Consequently these particular pieces are believed to be lost.

I have never heard it confirmed exactly how much synth was recreated for the Y2 CD set but I always thought that it was only for one specific track. This track was most recalled from the episode 'The Rules of Luton' where Koenig and Maya talk of their past...a very wistful and emotive synth piece. This was quite successfully re-created and I thought that was the only piece. Since then there has been speculation of some synth added to other bits of the CD, which I sincerely hope didn't happen. The synth does seem to be more prominent on certain tracks in the 'Space Warp' suite but I don't know whether it was there to start with (and merely emphasised in the remix) or if it was added for the CD. Either way it wasn't an improvement and I hope that if the Y2 score is released by Silva - as I believe it will be - that these 'improvements' will be revisited.

Getting back to the Silva Year One CD, I listened to 'The Latest Fashion' again last night and was stunned at just how awful this bit of music is. I mean, it was just a softly played background piece in the episode in which it was used - sort of elevator musak - but on its own its just terrible; sounds like something I could have knocked up a few years back on my early Casio keyboard....smile

I know its good to cater for completists, but this CD really wouldn't have suffered if that track had been omitted.

As for the score to 'Black Sun' - always my favourite Y1 score - the stereo mix is very welcome indeed. The final track in that suite ('Home') was always a favourite: tender, emotional and finally triumphant.

Television music rarely got any better than this and the Silva album is a fine tribute indeed.

What episode is The Latest Fashion from? Can this be found on the Fanderson CD?

It's in 'Force of Life' when Anton Zoref (Ian McShane) enters the Solarium and this music is playing from the speakers.

No, its not on the Fanderson set. Thank God smile

Man, the Fanderson CD is out of print, so fans who missed it have kind of a second chance here. The Silva CD is half the length and with all the great music they COULD cram in there, they're putting in a source cue? Interesting.

Personally, I wanted to hear the "Lee Russell Escapes" cue remixed to its proper configuration. On the Fanderson, you can barely hear the man guitar riff. Instead you hear the twanging background stuff over everything. Ugh.

I hope there's a volume 2 of the first season stuff to round it out and make up for the unavailability of the Fanderson set.

SPACE:1999 YEAR ONE
ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK
ALBUM RELEASED

A new commercially-available original soundtrack album from Gerry Anderson's Space:1999 series was released by Silva Screen Records on September 13th, coinciding with the fifth anniversary of the fictional 'Breakaway' event seen in the programme's opening episode. Featuring digitally remastered recordings from the original master tapes of Barry Gray's episode scores in addition to a variety of library music tracks which supplemented Gray's music in various first season episodes, Silva Screen's Space:1999 album comprises the best of Fanderson's 1998 double-CD album but adds a new stereo mix of the opening titles theme, new stereo mixes of Gray's score to Black Sun and a previously unreleased source music track from Force Of Life, Giampiero Boneschi's 'The Latest Fashion'.

A mixture of themes, individual incidental tracks and episodic suites, the album includes nearly 80 minutes of music from Breakaway, Matter Of Life And Death, Black Sun, Ring Around The Moon, Another Time, Another Place, Force Of Life, War Games, The Troubled Spirit, The Infernal Machine, Mission Of The Darians, Dragon's Domain and The Testament Of Arkadia. The album also includes the main and end titles themes as well as an extended alternative version of the main title theme.

Complete with a 16 page full colour booklet with track details, musician credits and recording dates, the Space:1999 Year One Original TV Soundtrack album is now available in most good record shops with a recommended retail price of £9.99. However, Fanderson members can order the album from Fanderson Sales for just £8.50 (price includes postage within the UK) - see the latest Fanderson Sales leaflet for details of how to order.

Had my friend bring me back a copy from Wales. Fantastic album. Barry Gray was extremely underrated and underappreciated in his day. As a composer he was the real deal.

How does the Silva CD compare to the LP in terms of content? Aside from the theme, how much, if any, duplication of music is there?

 
 Posted:   Feb 28, 2005 - 4:06 PM   
 By:   Scott M (Oldsmith)   (Member)

Well, the LP has two tracks which were not even part of the series music. Otherwise, the rest of the stuff on the LP should be on the album (I know it all wound up on the Fanderson 2 CD set).

But the sound quality is better and the LP didn;t have any blank space, with droning sounds between tracks connecting them all. You'll be happy with the Silva album if you like the Space:1999 scores.

"I know I'm the only one, but I kind of miss the two disco tracks from the LP..."

One of the tracks is available as track 3 on this collection:

"...The library cues have been nicely selected, and even the ultra kitsch "The Latest Fashion" has campy entertainment value. Made me laugh anyway..."

I finally picked this up and gave it a spin yesterday. It's on in the background and I'm suddenly knocked out by a certain track. I run in the next room to see which it is: Number 7. Then I look at the track listing to find it was the most derided track on this thread. Go figure...

Silly me! I listened again the other day. I obviously had the tracks confused. Yeah, this one is definitely out of place on this collection.

I swear on a fleet of EAGLES that I heard one of those disco tracks in a British television series. And the series did not feature the music of Barry Gray. Maybe it was from THE NEW AVENGERS or THE RETURN OF THE SAINT with Ian Ogilvy. By the way, that Saint series had a spectacular score by John Scott. LUVED every note of it.

The disco tracks were from the Bruton Music Library if memory serves and I think were written by Brian Dee and Irving Martin, who wrote the theme music for RETURN OF THE SAINT (Martin was music supervisor for the series). It was indeed RETURN OF THE SAINT in which you heard one or both tracks.

Couldn't agree more with your comments on Scott's music for that series; some of it was actually from Scott's library scores for Bruton while the majority was specially composed.

Thanks alot Brit Dude. It's nice to know that my memory is still somewhat intact, since I haven't seen the series in over twenty years. Now I can stop losing sleep. Toodles.

Anyone have any problems importing Year One into iTunes? It froze up iTunes twice. I tried another CD and that imported alright. So thankfully the drive isn't damaged.

If I remember correctly before my iTunes days, I can right click the disc image and just copy the files over to my desktop, yes?
