Barry Grey Orchestra - Joe 90
Silva Screen and Anderson Entertainment are proud to announce a one off pressing of 1000 copies worldwide of the Joe 90 Theme on 7" vinyl.
Arguably the most iconic of the Barry Gray themes, and one that stands up as not only as an outstanding theme, but also, as an outstanding piece of music in it's own right. Enjoy and pre-now now.
First appearing on TV screens in September 1968, Joe 90 was a unique nine year old boy with the ability to absorb the brain patterns of top experts enabling him to become the most special agent of W.I.N. (World Intelligence Network).
Whilst there are arguably better-known scores amongst Barry Gray's sublime
catalogue of work, the composer's work for Joe 90 is in many ways the
most consistent and inventive selection he ever wrote.
Developing a theme for the new series was always the musician's starting point, and for Joe 90, the pop charts breezed into Gray's studio, with an opening tune featuring a genuine groove. Mixing Gray's inventive electronics with 60s "surf rock" guitars was an inspired decision. It is no wonder that this piece has gone on to enjoy a second life as a Northern Soul disco floor-filler.
