  • 'are you being served'....

    Hi,
    Does anyone know if the theme to Are you being served is available on vinyl and who it's by?? If so how easy is it to get??

    Also some years back I heard that La Funk Mob were producing a version of the Six Million Dollar Man theme? Never heard any more on this - did it actually get a release??

    Thanks in advance for any info,

    B
    Time to say peace...

    The AYBS theme is by Ronnie Hazelhurst and David Croft, but as far as I'm aware, the only commercially available version is the remix that came out in the mid-90s.

    The movie version is excellent, with a nice break at the start - and the rest of the music in the film comes from KPM. If only someone would do a soundtrack LP!

        i'm resurrecting this ancient thread to ask if the superior movie version of the AYBS theme was ever officially released:
         
        it's OK to head out for wonderful, but on your way to wonderful, you're gonna have to pass through all right. When you get to all right,
        take a good look around and get used to it, because that may be as far as you're gonna go.

          If not, is the version on this boot the same as the clip I posted?

              Coil released this cover of it in 2005 as tribute to founder John Balance, who'd recently died.

                  Thanks for all the replies so far.

                  Does anyone know if it is the film instrumental on the British Breaks LP?

                  Shere Khan - I don't have that CD so can't confirm.100%, but it looks like it is the same version.

                    I've got a rip of that CD and, yes, it's the film version.

                    Also I presume the GLC had it, too, as it turns up on their tribute to Waitrose : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3VFvQ6LYer4

                      I'm loving that 'Coil' track. They are a band I read about and admire in terms of their different approaches to making music and experimentation but have no idea where to start with their discography to get the bug as it were.

                              I will have undoubtedly posted this before, but Mr Berry is a huge Ronnie fan :
