Barry Gray Captain Scarlet And The Mysterons - Translucent Red Vinyl UK 2-LP vinyl record set (Double LP Album)
|Tracklisting / Additional Info:
First screened in 1967, Captain Scarlet And The Mysterons, was written as a more mature series, set against an ongoing war with a forboding unseen nemesis.
After the international success of Thunderbirds, Gerry and Sylvia Anderson turned their attention to a deadly threat from Mars. Seeking revenge for an attack on their home planet, the Mysterons plot to use their powers to bring Earth to its knees.
Across 32 episodes broadcast during 1967 – 1968, the series is remarkable for moving away from the more caricatured puppets of previous shows – they have more realistic body proportions and the storylines are much more violent and darker in tone. Something reflected in the music which has a more militaristic feel to it although, as always, composer Gray offers up occasional lighter tracks to break up the mood.
The opening narration of each episode sums it up –
"The Mysterons: sworn enemies of Earth. Possessing the ability to recreate an exact likeness of an object or person. But first, they must destroy... Leading the fight, one man fate has made indestructible. His name: Captain Scarlet." The Captain Scarlet LP will be sixth album in the series which includes UFO, Supercar, Thunderbirds, Fireball XL5 and Space: 1999.
Taking his lead from the series premise, Captain Scarlet inspired composer Barry Gray to explore an equally mature musical palette to what he had utilised for previous Supermarionation series. With subtle string arrangements replacing the bombast of Thunderbirds' urgency, the original music composed for Scarlet was suitably more atmospheric and at times more sober than its predecessors. The alien nature of the Mysterons themselves saw Gray return to the experimental electronic work he had composed for Fireball XL5 to create something suitably other worldly.
