Walkabout released on both vinyl and CD

Label – The Roundtable
Artist – John Barry
Title – Walkabout Soundtrack
Cat# - PM001LP (order LP) / PM001CD (pre-order CD)

LP Barcode – 643597936569

release dates: 11/11/2016 (vinyl) and 9/12/2016 (CD)

A lost paradise, a lost innocence, and a lost culture; these are the dominant themes presented in Nicolas Roeg’s 1971 masterpiece Walkabout, a survival story of two children lost in the scorched Australian wilderness. Together with other seminal Australian surrealistic outback films, (e.g. Wake In Fright) Walkabout was a film that reshaped the Australian film industry and defined the country’s New Wave.

On the cusp of the film’s 45th anniversary it is pertinent to observe that for decades the film’s original soundtrack has also been considered lost.

Composed and conducted by the acclaimed British film composer John Barry, the score is a hallucinogenic mix of exotic romanticism, children’s nursery rhyme and potent psychedelic experimentation.

For decades, the consensus among soundtrack circles was that the master tapes were officially missing with little chance that the music would ever see a legitimate release, but The Roundtable is pleased to announce that this is no longer the case.

The complete soundtrack to one of cinema history’s most visually spellbinding films has now finally been re-discovered, sourced from the original stereo master tapes and prepared to the guidelines of the original ill-fated 1970s LP release.

The Walkabout soundtrack is released in conjunction with the lost film music to Peter Weir’s 1977 existential eco-horror The Last Wave, composed by Charles Wain.

  • The premiere soundtrack release to Nicolas Roeg’s 1971 New Wave Masterpiece.
  • Lost hallucinogenic score from acclaimed film composer John Barry.
  • Sourced from the original stereo master tapes.
  • Deluxe packaging including archival film stills and original press material.
  • 12 track 180g vinyl LP and 6-panel digipak CD

11th November 2016

Quartet Records and Universal Music Group present the long-awaited remastered reissue of John Barry’s absolute classic.

The Last Valley is a historical drama set during the Thirty Years’ War (1618–1648). It was directed by James Clavell in 1971. A mercenary soldier (Michael Caine) and a teacher (Omar Sharif), each fleeing the religious war in southern Germany, accidentally find the valley, untouched by the war, and live there in peace.

Following his historical success with The Lion in Winter in 1968, John Barry was a natural choice for this film. Followed the same year by Mary, Queen of Scots, and by Robin and Marian in 1976, the four films form an essential historical tetralogy in Barry’s career. In The Last Valley, the composer provides a score of thunderous orchestral power, aggressive action cues and haunting choral writing. The score remains one of the most valued and appreciated by his fans.

The album was originally released in 1972 by Dunhill Records, where the composer and record producer Phil Ramone reordered the material for a better listening experience, and incorporated music not heard in the final cut of the picture. That album was reissued on CD in 2007 by Intrada. (James Fitzpatrick produced an excellent recording of the complete score conducted by Nic Raine for Silva Screen in 2001.)

For this new edition of the original LP tracks (the complete recording session recorded by John Richards at CTS sadly remains lost or destroyed.) Chris Malone has gone back to the original 2-track stereo tapes, courtesy of UMG, and remastered the album with a much improved and open sound, ensuring a more natural treble and a better low-end extension. The result is a new sound experience—the original score has never sounded so good. The CD is accompanied by a 16-page full-colour booklet with detailed liner notes by John Takis.

"Beautiful, nostalgic John Barry score finally receives long-overdue royal treatment on CD!"

Intrada presents an expanded release of the entire 34-minute John Barry score plus additional score alternates and unused music including three Barry songs.

Oh Boy!

Saturday, 29 October 2016 13:02

Congratulations to Ruud who has re-created this wonderful website dedicated to the 1950s TV series, Oh Boy!

Oh Boy! was the John Barry 7's first break on Commercial TV and eventually led to their residency on the BBC's Drumbeat series.

ob boy logo 1400

Over the last few years, a couple of people had contacted us about the possibility of purchasing and restoring John’s former property and asking for contact information.

One of them, a resident of Germany, duly set about purchasing it but received several warnings of likely problems from various consultants.

This is his story.

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.
