Captain Scarlet LP now available to pre-order

Hot on the heels of their limited edition Captain Scarlet 7″ single, Silva Screen’s next Anderson soundtrack album is Captain Scarlet And The Mysterons. As with their other recent Anderson releases, Captain Scarlet And The Mysterons has been produced for Silva Screen by the Fanderson team of Mike Jones on design with Tim Mallett on mastering, editing and compilation.

The album will be available on both translucent scarlet double LP and Compact Disc, with shipping expected from 3rd December and 19th November respectively (vinyl albums are currently taking longer to produce as supplies of PVC are affected by the worldwide demand for Covid-19 testing kits and vaccination syringes).

Once again, we’ve negotiated a great price on this album for club members, and remember that the price you see is the price you pay – no hidden shipping charges will be added as you checkout!

Of course, Fanderson’s own Captain Scarlet And The Mysterons 3-CD soundtrack boxset is still available too, as well as a raft of top quality Captain Scarlet goodies by fans, for fans!

The album will also be available as a digital download from the Silva Screen website from 19th November.
