Nicely put together video. Ah, happy memories of No Strings Attached, a wonderful little 10" album I bought twenty years ago...

Just a slideshow this time, but a wonderful little ditty precious few have heard from Lady P and Parker, The Abominable Snowman:

Phil, these songs pre-date "No Strings Attached". They were originally featured on the various Thunderbirds mini albums from the sixties.

Darn it!

I hadn't realised Parker Well done was already up - I've been working on it for about a fortnight now as an upgrade to the (VHS) version I did back in 1993


At least I was first with the Captain Scarlet Movie Trailer:

This is the first of the Mini-Albums the song appeared on as mentioned by Chris but it was also the 'flip-side' of the Pye Records release of the THUNDERBIRDS theme in 1965 too.

FAB is the mini-album from which the Aboniable Snowman song originates too. All a bit silly but great fun and wonderful to hear the actual voice artists singing and taking part in stories beyond the realm of the actual shows themselves.

HAWK! I don't wish to sound harsh but clips from the opening episode stuck together with the opening credits and a few sub titles hardly makes it a 'movie trailer'. Maybe it's just me but YOU TUBE is full of this sort of stuff and I don't see any point for it. Nice subtitles, well edited yes but in no way what a movie trailer of any time period would have looked like either today or back in the 1960s. I also don't get the 'I was first with this or that' stuff. You said it over on the JOE 90 jet post too. Is this a competition or something for you? Why not put together a little documentary piece of 'How To..' film on model making or something. That would put use to your technical skills, which you clearly have, as well as the model making ability you also enjoy showing too.

For all of you who have never heard this stuff or not heard it for years or whatever just look here. Again I have to say that if you fellas love this stuff so much just buy these CDs and support the companies who put this stuff out officially and at great expense. You don't have to even buy the real old Mini-Albums to enjoy these things any more so there is no need for the "I can't afford the eBay prices" stuff either. These CDs are great value and like I say if these sell in sufficient volumes others will surely follow. (Or we can hope!)
