1947 ~ Roy Frederick Budd (14 March 1947, South Norwood, London – 7 August 1993, London) was a British jazz musician and film score composer. His first recording was "Birth of the Budd" a single recording. His first recorded LP was Pick Yourself Up in early 1965. Around that same time, he also recorded an album named simply Roy Budd. Other solo albums include Live at Newport, Everything Is Coming Up Roses and Have a Jazzy Christmas. In 1967 he provided the theme tune for the Granada TV series Mr Rose (starring William Mervyn as an eccentric retired police chief), but his first score for the big screen was for the American western Soldier Blue in 1970 (though most of his other film work was on British productions). His best known score is probably for the 1971 Michael Caine film Get Carter, which marked the first notable use of his hallmark method of using the film's sound effects (in this case, Caine's train journey from London to Newcastle) to complement the music. He later worked on a number of films for the producer Euan Lloyd, including Paper Tiger, The Wild Geese, The Sea Wolves and Who Dares Wins. Another was the Kidnapped 1971 soundtrack.
