The Barry Gray Orchestra – No Strings Attached
Vinyl 10'', LP, Compilation, UK, 1985
Only for the hardcore British pop culture “otaku” fanatic. Barry Gray worked with the always wonderful Gerry Anderson, the creator and main aesthetic person for “The Thunderbirds” and “Stingray” puppet animation show. On a good listening experience you can imagine a touch of Joe Meek, but it is mostly hack by the numbers type of orchestration. I bought it for 99 cents, because I couldn't resist the 10” size as well as its cover. No Strings Attached is a good and honest title for this little album.
