"Those who bought the first book, but haven't bothered with The Man With The Midas Touch, that the second book is so much more comprehensive, containing such detailed information that I really don't know how the authors came across these facts. Their research is so informative.
"It's a great read of over 300 pages...and the design is much improved."
"As far as I am concerned, Midas Touch is the definitive history of John Barry. A very enjoyable read which takes a prominent pride of place in the bookcase."
"It's great for turning the conversation round to JB whenever friends pop round and (perhaps) making a few converts to the Barry's musical genius. If you don't already have this book in your collection, then shame on you. Your CD, Vinyl and whatever collection is not complete without it.
Whenever a new Barry CD hits the market, we all scramble to be the first in line to buy it. But that (unfortunately) does not happen every day. So, if you're getting withdrawal symptoms waiting for that new CD, this book is the perfect cure. An excellent investment (remember, there are only a limited number printed) and thoroughly recommended."

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
Wycombe Swan Concert Hall, High Wycombe, Berkshire United Kingdom.
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.
