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!

John Barry: The Mono Years 1957 – 1962, 3CD Boxset

Wednesday, 05 December 2018 14:09

JOHNBARRY the mono years

A three CD box set released in association with Geoff Leonard, biographer and world authority on the life and work of the great British film composer, John Barry.

“If you think in terms of the sixties as a revolution in England, it was music-led. The Beatles led the rock ‘n’ roll and John Barry led the movie music.” MICHAEL CAINE

“John’s got this facility of writing a tune, a very simple tune and that’s the most difficult one to write of all. The one that you think you must have heard somewhere before but you haven’t and he’s got the gift. It’s quite hard to write a simple tune. It’s quite easy to write a complicated one.” GEORGE MARTIN

A three CD box set released in association with Geoff Leonard, biographer and world authority on the life and work of the great British film composer, John Barry.

The edition includes every single John Barry Seven A & B side published between 1957 and 1962 in true mono housed together under one roof for the very first time. A unique opportunity to listen to these seminal recordings as they were originally heard.

The first bona fide CD appearance of the “Stringbeat” LP in mono, together with various singles also making their mono debuts on CD.

A chronological audio history of the group combined with authoritative booklet notes and rare period photos/images.

The inclusion of impossible rarities, including the debut CD release of the original version of ‘Three Little Fishes’ plus many sought-after Chappell Music Library recordings.

A fascinating insight into John Barry’s early work as a film composer, comprising as it does The James Bond Theme and his scores for Beat Girl, Never Let Go and The Amorous Prawn.

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

Website

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.
