    While we're on the subject of Steve Gray, does anyone know if this 'ere tune is one of his?

    http://www.hhg.freeuk.com/nancy/images/intro.ra

    It's the theme from the TV series of choice for kids off sick, 'Paint Along With Nancy', and I'm desperate to find out what it is. It sounds a bit like one of Steve's, so if anyone knows what it is, I'd love to know!

    On the commercially available front, I love Steve's composition 'Mellow Brass' on the Pye 'Rogero's Brazillian Brass', and his version of 'Wives and Lovers' on the Fontana 'A Woman In Love' LP is nice as well.

    Sermad - sorry to be finnicky but Steve Gray is on neither of those De Wolfe's!

    For Steve Gray (library-wise) I'd reccomend -

    KPM 1157 'Adventure Suite/The Hunter'
    KPM 1161 'Industry Vol.1' ('Pulp'&#33
    KPM 1170 'Sounds of The Times'
    Bruton BRD20 'The Good Life'
    Amphonic AMPS 114 'Sounds 80' ('Poltergeist' & 'Long Time Gone&#39

    A great composer is our Steve. He's been there, done that, and got the t shirt to prove it. Be warned tho' his music is bloody prolific and his compositions adorn most of the usual library labels and many other commercial lp's. And all kinds of styles of music to boot.

    Again, if it's a UK thing it's highly likely to be composed and played on by Steve Gray, piano and keys player, strings arranger and composer, who more and more appears to have had many strings to his bow. Geddit?!!
