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.
