Approval and support for our up-dated book

Mr & Mrs John Barry have given their approval and support for our up-dated book to be published in autumn 2002!

"Release of PETULIA CD postponed indefinitely"

Monday, 19 November 2001 10:22 Written by

Walter from the JB Yahoo-group reports on Monday, November 19: "Just got an e-mail from my record-shop telling me that they have been informed by Warner-records that the release of PETULIA has been postponed indefinitely :-(
There is also no sign of PETULIA anymore on the amazon.de - website..."

Premiere partyAlice’s Adventures In Wonderland has been released on DVD.  That’s the good news.  The bad news is that the print is so bad, I’ve got a ten-year old video taped from TV with a faulty aerial in better shape!  So, only get this if you are desperate (it is cheap) and even then think twice and do without it.

The company concerned is Platinum Disc Corporation of La Crosse, WI, USA, and may God have mercy on them for having the nerve to put this out for public consumption.

It’s pan and scan, unsurprisingly and appears to be region free.  Pity the whole thing wasn’t!  It’s such a shame that it’s not a decent transfer as it’s an excellent film. In fact, I was quite surprised to find so much music not on the original Warner Brothers LP.  This is definitely a candidate for some enterprising company or person to re-record with all the songs and musical bridges intact.

The Bridgewater Hall - Music of John Barry November 2018

The Music of John Barry

Saturday 10 November 7.30pm
The Bridgewater Hall
Lower Mosley Street
Manchester, M2 3WS

Website

Nicholas Dodd conductor
Andrew Collins presenter
Manchester Camerata

John Barry created some of the most memorable and recognisable film scores of the 20th century, such as Midnight Cowboy, Out of Africa, Dances with Wolves, Zulu and of course much of the music from the James Bond series; his versatility and originality were peerless. His death in 2011 deprived cinema of a true musical great. This concert pays tribute to his life and music with a carefully selected programme, conducted by Nicholas Dodd, who collaborated closely with the composer on his later films. Nicholas Dodd is regarded as one of the leading conductors and orchestrators of Hollywood film music and is a noted expert on, and performer of John Barry’s music. In fact, every James Bond movie from the last 10 years bears his signature.
