The Betsy re-recording on CD

The World Premiere Recording of the Complete Score to THE BETSY

The World Premiere Recording of the Complete Score to THE BETSY Composed by JOHN BARRY A Special Collectors Edition featuring one of the finest Film Scores from the Composer of OUT OF AFRICA * THE LION IN WINTER * MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS * ZULU * BORN FREE * GOLDFINGER * YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE and DANCES WITH WOLVES

The Complete Dramatic Score from the 1978 film set in Africa starring LAURENCE OLIVIER, ROBERT DUVALL, KATHERINE ROSS, TOMMY LEE JONES, JANE ALEXANDER and LESLEY ANNE DOWN Newly Recorded in Stunning and Dynamic Digital Sound Performed by the Acclaimed and Award-Winning 75-piece City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, Conducted by Nic Raine Produced by James Fitzpatrick for Prometheus Records New Score & Orchestration Reconstructed by Nic Raine ….who was principal orchestrator to John Barry on numerous films and albums Informative Sleeve Notes by Frank K. DeWald One of John Barry’s most romantic and heartfelt scores

After recording Mister Moses, an early score from John Barry, in the same series of sessions we tackled a more mature offering from the composer, The Betsy. This is very much Barry in his more subdued and romantic mode … although there are a few touches of his “Bond” style in the more violent passages. Romance is certainly to the fore in his beautiful main theme – a waltz which, in its many variations and repetitions, displays Barry’s elegance, sophistication and assured dramatic instinct. But it is the subtle scoring of scenes of incest and sexual intent that shows the composer at his most sensitive – especially the tortured solos for violin and cello, played here with so much feeling by Lucie Svehlova and Marek Elznic. After the rhythmic intensity of the earlier score it was quite a leap for the musicians to be expressive while also displaying the great restraint the music demanded.

The Deep re-releases on CD by Hot Shot/Big Break Records

Hot Shot/Big Break Records
are scheduled to release the John Barry/Donna Summer album, The Deep, on 10th February. Originally released in 1977, Barry & Summer received a Golden Globe nomination for their song, "Down, Deep Inside", which soared to no. 5 in the UK charts, winning a Silver Disc for sales volume.

Mastered from the original album tapes, the CD includes two bonus tracks, which could make it an essential purchase for Barry & Summer fans alike:

The White House Years - John Barry -- previously only available as the flip-side of Barry's instrumental single of "The Deep", released in the US.

Theme from The Deep (Down, Deep Inside) (12" Disco version) - Donna Summer.

The CD comes with a 16-page booklet which contains much of the original LP artwork and highly detailed notes by writer and music journalist Christian John Wilkane. He examines the history of Casablanca Records & Filmworks, the making of The Deep and the involvement of Barry & Summer in the project.
