Supercar: Original TV Soundtrack: Limited Edition Coloured Vinyl (LP)

Barry Gray - Supercar (Original Television Soundtrack)

Limited edition (500 worldwide) sherbert lemon two vinyl set

Barry Gray’s original Television score for Gerry Anderson's Supermarionation show.

Following from Four Feather Falls, Supercar was the second Gerry Anderson show to use the Supermarionation technique. Based on the Czech style of marionette puppetry, Supermarionation was Gerry and Sylvia Anderson’s development of the technique to include synchronisation of puppet’s lip movements with pre-recorded dialogue.

Between 1961 and 1962, thirty-nine episodes were produced. Due to lack of funding and speed of production, Barry Gray had to produce music fast; he composed a series of ‘themes’ for locations, situation and characters. The main star of the show, the Super car, was given the heroic theme, whilst the rest of the score is at times whimsical and charming to support the dialogue and at others menacing when underlining the drama. The orchestra was comprised of forty instrumentalists and was conducted by Barry himself.

Barry Gray was amongst the first composers to use electronic instruments in music for television. One such instrument was the Ondes Martenot, used to produce otherworldly musical motifs and fragments and later to create electronic sound effects in his future score for Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons. Other shows he later used this instrument for include Doppelganger and Doctor Who films Dr Who and the Daleks and Daleks’ Invasion Earth 2150 AD.

On this album, the 20 themes featured create a coherent listening experience. They guide the listener through the music map of the show.

    Nostalgia reigns supreme on fantastic vinyl pressings

    Having just bought myself a turntable after many years and finding out about these releases it was a no brainer, thick card sleeves lots of info in the gatefold sleeve and the pressing on coloured vinyl are superb, no surface noise whatsoever, really brings memorys of what was always a great score to all Gerry's stuff. very interesting to listen to certain motiffs that keep popping up across all 3, so far, soundtracks, listening to supercar and thinking hold on a minute i thought that was thunderbirds! and indeed they are in both shows in a slight re-arranged version. hopefully there will be many more releases in the future, Fireball XL5, Joe 90, Stingray, Captain Scarlet and the like but get them straight away as it seems these are now sold out.

    New and familiar tunes!

    Just as we finish watching Supercar for the first time this lovely treat came in the post. It’s a lovely set and the sherbet yellow vinyl discs are beautiful. The music is typically superb but then I wasn’t expecting less from Barry Gray. I really hope we get more of these soundtracks on disc soon!

    Memories are rekindled

    I caught up with Supercar later as I was a little too young when it first aired this is a great keepsake and I love the colour.

    Liked very much actually, there are themes on it used in Gerrys other productions, UFO, Introducing Thunderbirds, other Thunderbird and Penelope stuff and some bars from the man from MI5' oh and Fab 1 on the road,there's also a version of the Vianese Waltz, not a bad mix really!
