8/10 Dave Staff review, 26 May 2011

Best known for his thrilling music for the classic Gerry Anderson TV shows, Barry Gray actually had another lesser known musical life. Whilst not composing for Thunderbirds, Stingray, Captain Scarlet or UFO, he would be penning jingles for B.O.A.C., recording quirky bops for banks and building electronic scores for space age washing machines. Here, and for the first time ever, are over 80 examples of his extraordinary and entertaining advertising work, all taken from masters found in the Big Gray's tape archives. The recordings date from the late 50s to the mid 60s and range from catchy ditties for banana flavoured oat cereal to script work with the one and only Eric Sykes for a brand new posh tea. Its charming, naive, creative and often very funny. Yet there is an extraordinary array of musical ideas here with some jingles you won't be able to stop singing for years. In fact anything could happen in the next hour...so stand by for adverts!!!!
