Here you go - as I say, the disc was quite damaged, especially at the start of side A, but it's just about listenable!  mega.nz/file/QhhDQYRb#mytTCQs9wnyTc55xNsCHqIbgV1kQef_xlfW8mzw0qQw

That's fantastic, thanks!

Oh my God! Thanks so much for this - I've been after it for absolutely years. It completes the set of known Dr Who library cues (although there are a few that they didn't write down that we're still looking for...)

May I share the link in another forum?


Well, you may well be correct about the Green Death. The only thing I can say is that Doctor Who fans are obsessive in their quest for accuracy & on the Tardis Fandom site where I found my list...

I'm one of the people responsible for that list! Will be updating it with the new Synchro-Stings shortly.

I've just finished compiling a little something you might be interested in, I'll stick it in the downloads section...

The list at the top of this thread is my master list that I'm updating as I go. It's your main Fandom list with all the non-library music removed.

If you have any of the stuff I'm still missing (especially in a lossless format) I would love to get hold of it. Particularly The BBC library cues that I doubt would appear on here.

Glad to be of service!  I'm happy for you to upload the files to somewhere else and share them wherever you like if that's OK, but if you could keep the Mega link strictly to this place that would be appreciated - thanks!

I'm in the process of dubbing off the Synchro Stings 78, there are 26 of them on side 1 alone - most of them consisting of a single chord a couple of seconds long!  When I've finished side 2, I'll pop it up here and it might fill a few gaps.

Hi Lord,
Thank you so much for sharing IA 143!
Do you have any scans of the IA 143 labels?
While there are 38 tracks on the record, Discogs only has 13 listed
I'd like to tag them properly
for example
A1a Synchro-Stings No. 1a
A1b Synchro-Stings No. 1b
A1c Synchro-Stings No. 1c
A2a Synchro-Stings No. 2a
A2b Synchro-Stings No. 2b
A3a Synchro-Stings No. 3a
A3b Synchro-Stings No. 3b

I should point out here that the numbering system is my own - each side consists of either six or seven bands with several stings in each band, I just split them out for ease of identification.

So the labels just say Bands 1-6 or Bands 1-7 'for details see catalogue' - to get the correct details, we really need someone with an Impress catalogue I think!

I haven't got the Impress catalogue but some kind soul did once send me a few photos of it, so I've been able to re-tag Lord Thames' lovely rip:

mediafire.com/file/lpuiwfbrai06jwp/Impress+IA+143+-+Synchro-Stings.zip/file


And now we've got the missing stings, I've also made a start on completing some of the hitherto incomplete Who soundtracks. Hot off the presses, here's Mission to the Unknown which, until today, always had two stings missing!

Thanks again, Lord T!


EDIT: Added password (had a few copyright issues with JW CD tracks in the past and nesting them within multiple folders seems to help.)

The music from the Green Death is down as being by Dudley Simpson, so he may well have composed something for that slot.

That's an interesting concept...but not sure on that. Cause all Dr Who original music in its original run was never contemporary. Was always dramatic/incidental or electro sci-fi during the later John Nathan Turner era.

The only thing I can remember original music wise that had somewhat of a contemporary groove (just needed a drum/rhythm track to make it a true jam) was the music in "Logopolis" where they're running away from the guards to get to the radio telescope. Which was Paddy Kingsland's original score.

One episode not in your list that i'm 99.9% sure has library music is The Green Death. I remember some Jazz/Easy Listening sax or brass drivin groove in the distant background somewhere in the beginning of the episode (in Part 1 I think). Always wanted to know what that was.

You're right! According to the BBC paperwork...

h++p://www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho/classic/episodeguide/pasb/greendeath.pdf

...there's a track from Even More Electric Banana in episode six - the party scene, I think.

EDIT: We just cross-posted about the same thing!


Was surprised to see some things in your list from the 2nd Peter Davison story. I had thought by the early 80's it was all original synth score music.

Yes, after 1970 the only library tracks are featured music rather than incidental. Those Davison tracks are all ethnic music actually performed by the characters.

I may be misunderstanding you here, but Norman Kay wrote music for the very first story which I don't think is library music.

I'm sure Horror Bag will correct me if I'm wrong, here.

Also, music that the characters themselves can hear in a story is referred to as "source music". But I'm sure you knew that. :)

I ripped LPC 781-785 yesterday before Horror Bag shared the Tenth Planet post which included the Dr Who tracks as FLAC files but as it's done I thought I'd share anyway.

Thanks for that! That LPC is definitely one of the rarer ones. [EDIT: Oops, I'm talking rubbish - I thought this was the Space Adventures album.]

The Impress catalogue I've got photos of lists the Synchro-Stings like that in the "Numerical Index" section but has more detail in the "Bridges and Stings" part. I would post the images but they're not really mine to share, unfortunately. I did transcribe the details in a word doc in my re-tagged upload a few posts ago though.
