John Baker The Vendetta Tapes on LP + Download

Incidental Music from the 1960s BBC TV Series And Other Radiophonics!

A brand new compilation of material by John Baker from the BBC Radiophonic Workshop! Baker ranks as one of the world's most influential electronic musicians. His talent as a jazz pianist and ability to manipulate tiny fragments of tape into new sound is legendary. Whilst working on The John Baker Tapes compilation for Trunk Records, producer Alan Gubby unearthed several reels of music and sound effects from the 1960's BBC TV series Vendetta - a mafia themed cop thriller starring Italian actor Stelio Candelli (Barbarella, Django, Planet Of The Vampires).

Baker produced tense, rhythmic and unhinged James Bond style themes for the first series in 1966 with live drums, radiophonic beats, twanging bass lines and screaming jazz solos. The music is thrilling, sleazy, deranged and very hip. Highlights from the score are presented alongside other rare and unreleased Baker tracks, digitally remastered by Mark Ayres from the radiophonic archives. Plus sleeve notes from one of the show's original creators, screenwriter Brian Degas (Barbarella, Colditz, Danger: Diabolik).
