Thoroughly and painstakingly researched over a number of years, it features contributions from several ex-members of the band and from friends and relatives of John Barry.

Comprising of over 360 pages, it is packed with an array of rare photos of the band, and the singers they often supported, as well as some unique images of memorabilia and documentation from that era; some never previously published, many more seldom seen.

Even if you are not necessarily a devotee of The John Barry Seven per se, the book offers a fascinating historical insight into the British music scene of the period and, more importantly, provides an essential read for anybody remotely interested in discovering more about John Barry's formative career.

We appreciate the postage to destinations outside the UK is somewhat expensive, but unfortunately there is nothing we can do about this. Due to its size and the number of pages, the book is very heavy — about 1.4 kilograms — and shipping overseas is expensive. However, we think buyers will appreciate the quality of the book is well worth it!

The Secrets Of My Heart

Sunday, 01 March 2015 14:32

With author's note (Cynthia Haagens)

I wrote the lyrics to "The Secrets of My Heart" and in the CD package they were mistranslated by a Japanese translator who transcribed the lyrics after listening to the song and getting the words completely wrong!! This has been a huge source of both laughs and irritation for me since I wrote the lyric!

Here is my actual lyric:

Private dreams I never told you
Come to hold me in the dark
Moonlit skies and long embraces
Eyes that shine from lovers' faces

You'll never know
The secrets of my heart

Unknown worlds you'll never share,
love
Call to you, we'll sleep apart
Empty arms will wait so lonely
I'll touch the night and let it hold me

You'll never show
The secrets of your heart

Private dreams are meant for living
Trace them with a treasure chart
Tell you all my hidden wishes
And never fly from lovers' kisses

If you could share
The secrets of my heart

Music John Barry
Lyrics Cynthia Haagens and Graeme Clifford
Performed by Kristina Nichols
