They Say: "Contemporary scores for visual effect". We say: Synth-heavy, low-slung space-funk masterpiece. The creator of the romping tunes that became the iconic themes to the BBC's Grandstand programme and their televised Wimbledon Tennis Championship coverage, Keith Mansfield was perhaps KPM's most prolific artist from the mid 1960s right the way through the 1980s. As well as the sort of pop orchestral sound that is all over these classic library records, he could also turn his hand to raw, edgy rock and funk. Quentin Tarantino is a big fan, going as far as including some of Keith's work on the soundtracks to Kill Bill and Grindhouse. This is it. This is THE ONE for us: Keith "The Man" Mansfield's Vivid Underscores from 1977. A sample freak's wet dream and one of Be With Rob's favourite ever KPM records. A must for fans of Brian Bennett's Voyage (yes, THAT good). And no, we've no idea either why it took us this long to get round to tackling this monster of a record. But then again some things are worth waiting for.
