Harry Forbes – Tomorrow’s Achievements from Public Information on Vimeo.

While looking around online for stuff to play on my Handpicked show this past summer, I came across a release called New Technology Volume 4, put out in 1983 by the Canadian library label Parry Music. I really liked it, especially the stuff by Harry Forbes—unfortunately, like a lot of the great library releases of the era, this material has long been only available second-hand and is nearly impossible to track down. That’s why I was excited last month to see the British label Public Information put out Tomorrow’s Achievements: Parry Music Library 1976 – 86. To promote the release, Public Information put together this video (a re-edit of an old Shell commercial) for the title cut, another Forbes composition. The compilation is available on vinyl and digital download and is definitely worth checking out.
