Missing music

Missing music, hopefully not lost

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.


  • 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

The Bridgewater Hall - Music of John Barry November 2018

The Music of John Barry

Saturday 10 November 7.30pm
The Bridgewater Hall
Lower Mosley Street
Manchester, M2 3WS


Nicholas Dodd conductor
Andrew Collins presenter
Manchester Camerata

John Barry created some of the most memorable and recognisable film scores of the 20th century, such as Midnight Cowboy, Out of Africa, Dances with Wolves, Zulu and of course much of the music from the James Bond series; his versatility and originality were peerless. His death in 2011 deprived cinema of a true musical great. This concert pays tribute to his life and music with a carefully selected programme, conducted by Nicholas Dodd, who collaborated closely with the composer on his later films. Nicholas Dodd is regarded as one of the leading conductors and orchestrators of Hollywood film music and is a noted expert on, and performer of John Barry’s music. In fact, every James Bond movie from the last 10 years bears his signature.
