Oh, I suspect a lot of people were disappointed that some tracks including the Avengers were MIDI on it.


exactly...some of the recordings were original tracks...either taken from the program itself, or studio recordings..the rest were horrible re recordings..

but at the time, it was better than nothing, you know ?



Well, mousemeat, after many years of searching, I come to the conclusion that this edition was the first to include the Avengers main theme on CD. So, 1986 is the beginning and the USA was the first (of course this is only within the framework of the CDs). Wink


Tram-tam-tararam - what a coincidence, I just posted the English language version of the page for CDs by 1986.

https://steedumbrella.ru/en_CDs_TV_series_Albums_1986.html

I studied a bunch of newspapers and found that Television's Greatest Hits: Volume II was released in September 1986 in the USA.



It is curious that for the track The Avengers, the edition indicated authorship of John Dankworth instead of Laurie Johnson.



And here is the track itself:

https://steedumbrella.ru/au
dio/The_Avengers_MIDI.mp3




I bought it on vinyl...when it first came out..to 'hear' the Avengers theme ...and yeah, it should have been credited to Johnson, and not Dankworth...as they are two entirely different themes....but are are some interesting other themes on the LP...and later CD issue...like I married Joan, Gidget, etc.....and those first two volumes on TVT, sold a ton.......

1990 here:

http://steedumbrella.ru/en_CDs_TV_series_Albums_1990.html



I also decided to remove the former albums pages with the music Avengers theme from promotional editions, remixes and samples - all editions from these pages will be combined with these for individual years now.

There are a lot of interesting music tracks. It is curious that I had the idea to publish all the tracks from the albums on Steedumbrella, but then I thought that since the base for music material on the website is already very extensive, then if all the tracks are published, this will be way over. Although maybe at some point I'll change my mind. Wink

Interesting they went back to Johnny as he preferred to be called John in his later years.

Many thanks for your opinion about Roulette, mousemeat, as I know pretty little about this label except that they released Johnny's records in 1963 in the US while it was released in the UK by Columbia.

Definitely Cleo would sound fit on these records. Wink

Apparently EMI and Rhino, who acquired Roulette in 1989, decided to please the audience not only with remastered recordings of John Dankworth, but also nostalgic for his former name. However, choosing John's slightly blurry photo is a bit odd - as if they didn't have anything else at hand.

It is curious that initially, until yesterday, this EMI label was on Steedumbrella page for this CD edition rather than Roulette, but I changed this since Discogs.com refers to this. When I saw this, I was surprised, but decided that these guys should know the topic better. However, there are some mistakes in release years, track titles, sometimes even track order (yes, I recently listened to recordings from Television's Greatest Hits - Volume 2, and Merrie Melodies is track №2 (not 3), while Rocky & Bullwinkle is №3 (not 2)), etc. - now I'm beginning to be inclined that I need to go back to EMI. Wink

Yes, all tracks are a-la hip-hop, techno or disco mixes.

Damn, i'll have to go thru my vinyl archives (10.000 lp's) and try and dig up
some of those original U.S. lp's.....Btw, Rhino is owned by Warners, which also owns Atlantic, Reprise, Warners, Elektra, Sire, etc....the original founders of RHINO, who sold out to AOL-Warners, eventually left Rhino and started Shout Factory, which is modeled after RHINO...putting out cd's and cool DVD's...of films, TV series, sporting events, etc....Roulette was owned by Morris Levy, who was a character in his own right...he would have fitted in the Avengers universe..


Of course, ran from early 1957, to 1989, when it was acquired by EMI /Warners..they did put out some cool singles and Lp's during the label's run..they weren't good about paying royalties to artists, etc..(heh he heh) a familiar tale of woe from those early years....Levy had strong ties to NY mobsters...but that's a story for another thread.....

Could very well be a mistake, using the Dankworth theme instead of the Johnson one. But a happy one in my opinion.

1993 here:

https://steedumbrella.ru/en_CDs_TV_series_Albums_and_Singles_1993.html

I'm waiting for when I get to the vinyl pages and it will be more interesting to nostalgic. Wink

It's funny that while I am working on these pages, I suddenly received an offer to perform a duet with a music program in one institution in April. I have already agreed and sent a list of songs, I see in the program - I am waiting for an answer. Apparently in the coming weeks I will be rehearsing and the work on the site will temporarily slow down.

Mainly, songs by my program in style Pop, "Easy Rock" and Folk, but it is possible that the sheet may change a lot after general consideration, depending on the interests of the organizer and other performer in the project.

That Al Bundy album (albumdy?) is one of the strangest things I've ever seen in my life. I suppose it's because Love and Marriage was a "cult" programme?

Apparently in the Federal Republic of Germany it was also popular, since other CD edition Al Bundy Präsentiert: Das Schrecklich Nette Album was previously released there. However, it is curious that they went to this name, since someone who is not familiar with the TV series Married... with Children might think of a real person named Al Bundy. Very Happy I still have two clients from the video market (where i worked) who live in the old fashioned way, have no internet and ideas about some popular TV programs abroad. One of them is a music collector and I can easily imagine that he can buy this СD album somewhere in a special store and think about who Al Bundy is. Very Happy

ah yes, Al Bundy....quite the skirt chaser...on Married with children..which was a huge favorite on the FOX Network...of course, Al was no relation to Ted Bundy, the infamous serial killer of the 70's, etc.....

From the 40's, up to very early 60's, Columbia (UK) Was a small label distributed by several larger labels -companies, during that time span..of course, Columbia in North America, was huge..right up there with Capitol, Decca, Warners, Vanguard, etc....Eventually, CBS decided to set up Columbia in the UK, to stand on it's own....
