Available for the first time on vinyl.

This album provides a window on the golden age of African music, presenting the finest works created during the era of decolonisation when the Black Continent looked forward to a brighter future. In Volume 1 of Golden Afrique, we take a look at some West African countries. Some of them (Mali, Guinea, and later Guinea-Bissau) tried a socialist' path, while others, such as Senegal, Gambia and Ivory Coast, looked to the capitalist' model. Today, we find that both these approaches have led to an economic impasse. Never-theless, both have produced outstanding artistic achievements.

In Abidjan, Dakar and Banjul, it was the chance of earning a living by music that brought traditional musicians and modern instruments together. It went something like this: to earn a lot of money, you need to draw a big crowd, and when a big crowd starts dancing, all that can be heard of the traditional instruments is the drumming. And that, as they put it themselves, somewhat tongue-in-cheek, was the last thing they wanted to hear now that they had come to the big city. So the club owners bought electric guitars, amplifiers, saxophones, trumpets and horns, and employed musicians - both traditional local musicans and traveling modern musicians.

Lancashire-born Robert Sharples is probably best remembered as the musical director of prototype TV talent show Opportunity Knocks, where he was frequently name checked on screen by host Hughie Green, but it was under the pseudonym Robert Earley that he provided memorable themes and incidental cues for a range of ITV drama series during the late ‘60s and early ‘70s.

Themes for TV Drama brings together some of Earley's best-known compositions, ranging from the smokey, jazz-tinged Public Eye (perfectly encapsulating the down-at-heel milieu of investigator Frank Marker) to the brassy, urgent aggression of Special Branch.

This EP is presented on 80g virgin vinyl featuring new transfers from original analogue tape elements. Mastering engineers Ray Staff and John Webber at Sir George Martin’s legendary AIR studios mastered the audio for this and cut the lacquers. The high quality pressing was done by the renowned Pallas pressing plant in Germany.
