Tracklisting & More Information

With the 60th Anniversary of Fireball XL5 looming, Anderson Entertainment is relaunching the iconic and
collectable Century 21 record label that they had originally formed in 1965.

Using the same “21 minutes of Adventure” concept and mirroring the original artwork which has become iconic in its own right, the series
kicks off with a Fireball XL5 adventure, released 60 years to the day from the UK TV debut of the series.

“Cloud of a Billion Lights” stars an all-new cast, replicating the iconic voices. Marc Silk (Steve Zodiac), Nicholas Briggs (Matt Mattick) and
Genevieve Gaunt (Dr Venus) are joined by Jamie Anderson voicing Robert the Robot taking over the voice role from his late father, Gerry Anderson.

The original label artwork is true to the original also, and each one will be pressed on coloured vinyl and limited to just 1000 copies worldwide.

This first release is presented on 'fireball yellow' vinyl - It will not be repressed, when it is gone, it is gone!

Fireball XL5 is a legendary 1960s British children's science-fiction puppet television series about the missions of
Fireball XL5, a vessel of the World Space Patrol that polices the cosmos in the year 2062.

Inspired by the Space Race, Fireball XL5 was created by the husband-and-wife team of Gerry and Sylvia Anderson and filmed by their
production company AP Films (APF) for ITC Entertainment. It was APF's third series to be made in what the Andersons dubbed "Supermarionation"

The series premiered on ATV London (part of the ITV network) on 28 October 1962. It was also purchased by NBC in the United States, becoming
the only Anderson series to air on an American network. NBC aired it as part of it's Saturday morning children's block from 1963 to September 1965.

Century 21 Merchandising produced a series of mini albums in 1965, 1966 and 1967. In most cases, they consisted of audio clips from the TV episodes, with some added narration provided by one of the main characters. The albums were released in the UK under the "Century 21 Records" label, and they were pressed by Pye Records Ltd.

The first release was a Fireball XL5 adventure, these releases would be extremely authentic to the television shows they were based on, incorporating many of the voice artists from their respective series as well as all the familiar sound effects and Barry Gray music viewers were familiar with. The mini albums were also released in Australia under the "Astor Records" label and were licensed to be produced and distributed by Astor in Sydney.

The series was hugely successful, and the original records are highly sought after, so this “back to the future” re-launch is extremely welcome!
