John Barry - Two Classic Albums plus singles 1957 - 1962  4CD

On the 2nd September, the PD specialist Real Gone Music (not the US label of the same name) is releasing a box-set (4 CDs) entitled "Two Classic Albums Plus Singles" by John Barry.

No further details are provided but their track record suggests this will be Beat Girl/Stringbeat plus all the JB7 singles up to the end of 1962.

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.)
