Masquerade

Sunday, 03 March 2002 10:25

3rd March 2002: Ford A. Thaxton reported to the John Barry discussion group that next week he is going into the studio and edit and master the album. Right now the plan is to have the CD contain the entire score and then a suite of original source cues that Barry composed for the film (i.e like the HAMMETT CD).
After it's assembled, he is going to submit to both MGM and John Barry for their approval.
Assuming they wish no changes, work begins on the artwork and such. The CD will sound great!!! The the original 32 Digital masters were discovered, so it will sound better then ever.

James FitzPatrick wrote: Having now spoken to "the horse's mouth" - namely Luc of Prometheus Records, I can inform you that MAY will be the official release month for Masquerade and that it is more likely to be late May rather than early.

This is because Prometheus are releasing FLESH & BLOOD in March and they like to have a bit of a gap between each release. This also makes perfect economic sense as being a small label there is always the cinsideration of outgoings, cashflow etc...

Ford A. Thaxton reports on the John Barry discussion group "After a rather long search we just this week found the digital multi-track masters to the score and production on the master started on Friday.

It will be coming out very shortly, it will be the next release from the PROMETHEUS Club right after the expanded CD release of FLESH + BLOOD by Basil Poledouris.

The sound is INCREDIBLE!!! It will be well worth the wait."

James Bond fans are in for a treat in January 2019, as renowned Band, the popular Q The Music Show, are putting on a special concert - performing all the music from Moonraker on

26th January 2019

at the

Wycombe Swan Concert Hall,
High Wycombe,
Berkshire
United Kingdom.

You can back the project and buy tickets here

They are drafting in professional musicians from London to create a 100-piece Orchestra and Choir to recreate all of John Barry’s iconic cues from the 1979 film. As there is only around 50 minutes of music in the film, they will perform the best of the James Bond songs in the second half in true Q The Music style, but with full orchestra.

Because of the nature of this concert, and the huge costs involved, they are crowd funding it, so tickets have to be purchased by 6th May this year for the concert to go ahead on Saturday 26th January 2019.

Q The Music Show are popular with James Bond fans all around the World thanks to their dedicated and authentic versions of the music and were chosen to perform at Sir Roger Moore’s Memorial Event at Pinewood Studios in October last year. The concert will be compered by Bond girls Madeline Smith and Caroline Munro, who have been working with Q The Music this year on their theatre tour of the UK.

The concert will not be available to buy on recording after the show, and the Moonraker score has never been performed live, so this is a unique opportunity for fans to see it. If the project is a success, Q The Music plan to go on a do a different Barry/Bond score each year.

*Please note, this is a music only performance – no images or footage from the film will be shown, and Q The Music are not associated with EON, Danjaq LLC, or the James Bond Films in any way.
