Biography

Syd Dale was born in New York, England. He was a self-taught composer and arranger of funk, easy listening and library music. His music played an important role on TV, radio and advertising media of the 1960s and 1970s. It is still extensively used today. Syd Dale started as an apprentice engineer at Rowntree's chocolate factory at 16. Soon Big Band music, very popular in the 1940s, became his passion. He spent as much time as possible listening to the Big Bands and studying the arrangements. Three years later, in 1945, he left the factory and joined several local bands as a pianist and arranger. Many years later, in the middle of the 1960s, his talent was widely recognized. Syd Dale's music, which emphasized melody and harmony with intricate arrangements, was ahead of its time. He worked on many television and radio projects. He was a musical director on Oh Boy, Six-Five Special and Braden's Week. He had also co-arranged and co-produced some 007 themes as many other commercial successes. Another of his many production music pieces, the bongo drum and harpsichord-driven "Cuban Presto" (originally released on the 1966 KPM album Accent on Percussion), was used by WPIX (Channel 11) in New York City as the theme for its late-night movie show, The Channel 11 Film Festival, from the late 1960s to the 1980s. In 1971, he founded Amphonic Music record label, with the special purpose of recording and producing his compositions and supply music to TV, film and radio business. Thirty years later, the company is still working. In the mid 70's he also released one of his more memorable tracks to the disco/teen market "The Flasher", creating a dance craze of Skipping backwards and forwards on the dance floor widely demonstrated at Spenborough Youth Club, West Yorkshire.

Some of his music were played on famous TV shows and movies, for example: His music "Beauty Parade" aired on the SpongeBob SquarePants episode "Spy Buddies" when Plankton got all of the customers out of Mr. Krabs's restaurant, the Krusty Krab. Plankton played it very loudly while flying over the Krusty Krab in his blimp.
