On October 14th, Sony will release a budget-priced 3-CD box-set: "The Real .... John Barry."

It's similar in content to the previous Sony box-set, Themependium, but includes at least one track that wasn't on that one: Theme from "Romance for Guitar and Orchestra".  There may also be two versions of "The Ipcress File".

It appears this time all the vocals included on Themependium have been omitted, and we must hope that "Sleep Well My Darling" & "Mary, Queen of Scots" have been properly remastered!

It's a pity they have apparently not included the "b" side version of The Lion In Winter featuring Alan Haven, but then, I don't suppose they knew about it.

The full track-listing is:

  1. The James Bond Theme
  2. 007
  3. From Russia With Love

  10. Sleep Well My Darling
  11. You Only Live Twice
  12. Space March (Capsule In Space)
  13. On Her Majesty's Secret Service
  14. Try
  15. Who Will Buy My Yesterdays
  16. The More Things Change
  17. Diamonds Are Forever
  18. All Time High

CD2:

  1. The Ipcress File
  2. A Man Alone (Theme from the film "The Ipcress File")
  3. Barbra's Theme
  4. The Syndicate
  5. What a Question
  6. Zulu
  7. Seance On a Wet Afternoon
  8. The Knack
  9. King Rat March

  17. Theme from "The Appointment"
  18. The Girl with the Sun in Her Hair

CD3:

  1. Midnight Cowboy
  2. Fun City
  3. Walkabout
  4. Afternoon
  5. Mary, Queen of Scots
  6. Body Heat
  7. Frances

John's elder sister, June, has died

Thursday, 11 August 2016 12:35

We are very sad to report that John's elder sister, June, died on 19th July, aged 86. She had been suffering from dementia for the last few years, but appeared in public in 2011 at a York concert held in  memory of her brother's life and career.

Mrs Lloyd Jones was a talented oil-painter who often exhibited locally. Her husband, David was a potter of some renown, the couple having met at Guildford School of Art. Previously, like John, June had attended the Bar Convent School, before studying at York School of Art.

June and David married in York in 1955 and had four children: Simon, Caroline, Emma and Abigail. June had been widowed since the passing of her husband in 1994.

More news on this when we have it.

This is an interesting combination of tracks from both EMI & Ember, and it’s quite rare to see this released on one CD compilation. The second CD, a 2-disc affair, contains a reissue of Fool Britannia, the UK release of which was supervised, by Barry, and was a major hit at the time of its original vinyl release in 1963, plus the two tracks by Miss X, produced by Barry. Also included is Anthony Newley & Leslie Bricusse’s Stop the World, I Want To Get Off album, selections from the film soundtrack of Scandal (1989) plus a few tracks from the highly regarded satirical BBC TV series, That Was The Week That Was, from 1962/3.

Update

We are trying to gauge likely support for a Kickstarter Campaign to raise funds for a new recording of John Barry's TV Scores by Nic Raine and James Fitzpatrick.

We would need £15,000 and Tadlow music would provide the other half.

We would like to be assured that there is a reasonable chance of support for such a campaign before launching it.

So if you are *likely* to contribute, please visit this Facebook page. (This is a Facebook page link to the poll itself.)
