Silva Screen Records has had long ties with Gerry Anderson and we are very saddened by the news of his death last week. Like all great innovators Gerry surrounded himself with a an array of talented individuals who helped him to achieve his dream of creating unforgettable TV series, whose legacy continues to grow as each year passes. Our link was having the honour of releasing Barry Gray’s accomplished soundtracks to Gerry’s shows, a process that began in 2003 with Thunderbirds and continues with our current 7″ vinyl collector’s project. The interest and sales of this catalogue come from all four corners of the world and underline how one man’s vision crossed all boundaries of language and culture.
56 years have passed now since the first Gerry Anderson production (The Adventures Of Twizzle) and it seems a certainty that over the next half-century his work will remain to be discovered and enjoyed by a new generations of fans.
