There is exciting breaking news that a record company is working on two John Barry projects for release later this year.
One is intended to be a "Best of" compilation which will be TV-advertised. The other is a very ambitious "definitive" box-set which will contain the highlights of his entire career.
We're told that wherever possible original versions will be used but in some cases that may prove impossible due to missing tapes and licensing problems.
More details will follow as soon as track details can be confirmed.
Latest news, October 9 - the box-set has now been delayed until 2007. This is due entirely to licensing delays and difficulties. The good news is that it has only been postponed, not cancelled.
