Test Card Music Vol. 8

A 23 track jazz instrumental pop album (1h 43s) — released April 7th 2003 on APOLLO SOUND
Test Card Vol 8 features 21 digitally re-mastered tracks from the 60¹s, 70¹s & 80¹s - the heyday of testcard transmissions. Memorable melodies in a variety of styles and arrangements, ranging from big band, scat vocal to piano and full string orchestra, from a sparkling array of composers and performers. Happy memories from the time when Testcard transmissions were only Ointerrupted for occasional daytime programming!' The Apollo Sound archives feature the very best Testcard Music. These recordings were originally prompted by the need for quality music to be used during the long hours of Testcard Transmissions. At that time the BBC was severely restricted in the repertoire that they could use, partly due to the Musician¹s Union practices, and partly due to constraints which ruled out commercially available recordings. Meeting this demand prompted a golden age of music production which encompassed such a wide range of styles.'
