Part One of Two. 2012 double vinyl LP compilation that provides an overview of British composers who worked in television, film and music libraries the second half of the 20th century. Aside from John Barry, the majority of composers featured here remain relatively unknown. And yet ironically they have created some of the most recognizable songs in British popular culture, their music widely disseminated on television. This album is not however a stroll through the TV memories of the mind, but an exploration of the serious contribution that these creative musicians have on the landscape of popular music in Britain. Most of the music featured here was commissioned by music libraries such as KPM, de Wolfe, Chappell, Bruton, Themes International, Peer International, Conroy and Amphonic. Perhaps the most interesting aspect of the music featured here is that despite library or commissioned music being on the one-hand the ultimate 'faceless music', with composers often un-credited, it's widespread use in film and television makes it simultaneously some of the most recognizable in the world. Soul Jazz.
