Drumbeat - John Barry - The Lost Tracks

Monday, 09 March 2015 15:27 Written by

John Barry – The Lost Tracks

The following were performed ‘live’ by the John Barry Seven on BBC’s Drumbeat series in 1959. Only one of the shows was pre-recorded (and there is not much chance of that having survived) so unless anybody recorded the shows onto a tape-recorder, it’s likely they will never be heard again.

Television:

Drumbeat:

Jumping with Symphony Sid (JB7 & Millermen)
Topsy (JB7 & Millermen)
Trollin’
Tequila
Roulette
Toots (written by John Barry)
The Rumble (written by John Barry)
Guitar Boogie Shuffle
Black Bottom
Flippin’
Juke Box Fury
Bongo Rock
Teenage Guitar
Flippin’ In
Mason Dixon Line
What is this thing called love?
Peter Gunn
China Tea
Cerveza

The following were pre-recorded by the JB7 as part of the soundtrack to this BBC drama in 1961, along with songs by Ray Brooks & Johnny De Little. As in the case of Drumbeat, there is little chance of this still existing in the BBC archives.

Girl On A Roof:

Not Guilty (written by Trevor Peacock)
I Want You Baby (written by John Barry)

The JB7 made countless radio appearances on shows like Saturday, Club, Easy Beat & Music With A Beat. All of them were pre-recorded so there is a chance at least some of them still exist. They also accompanied a wide variety of vocalists. The following is not an exhaustive list – merely the ones we know about.

Radio:

Easy Beat, Saturday Club, Music With A Beat

All John Barry Seven / John Barry Seven plus Four:

Like Young
Manhunt
The Swinging Preacher
Young Man’s Lament
How High The Noon
Bonnie Came Back
Big Beat Boogie
Easy Beat (written by John Barry)
Beatnik Fly
Too Much Tequila
Tuxedo Junction
No Go (written by John Barry)*
I Remember You
Easy To Love
Chiquita Linda
Saturday Jump
Royal Event
Dumplings
Theme From a Summer Place
Two Way Stretch
No Moon At All
My Old Man’s A Dustman
On The Beach
Shazam
Down Yonder
Lonesome Road
Trouble Shooter (written by John Barry)
St. Louis Blues
Route No. 1

* possibly renamed and recorded

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.

You can back the project and buy tickets here

*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.
