Unreleased scores

Sunday, 22 February 2015 14:32

22 February 2015:

Despite all the recent releases there are a surprising number of John Barry film scores that have still to be issued on CD. I'll divide these films into sections.

Of the following there is little or no chance of a release either due to the paucity of music in the film or the non-existence of the original recording:

  • Never Let Go (1960)
  • The Amorous Prawn (1962)
  • The Party's Over (1963)
  • Séance On A Wet Afternoon (1964)
  • A Jolly Bad Fellow (1964)
  • The Glass Menagerie (1973)
  • Love Among The Ruins (1973)
  • The Corn Is Green (1978)

Rejected scores known to have been recorded:

  • Sinful Davey (1969) – score said to have been lost during a flood.
  • The Year of the Comet (1992)
  • Goodbye Lover (1999)

LP release exists but to date appear difficult to license for CD:

  • Man In The Middle (1964)
  • Boom! (1968)
  • Follow Me (1971)
  • Legend Of The Lone Ranger (1981)
  • Howard The Duck (1986)

LP release exists but with none or little of JB's score included:

  • Inside Moves (1980)
  • The Cotton Club (1984)
  • Hearts Of Fire (1987) - released film has only a few minutes of music by JB

Scores that have been re-recorded because the original appears unavailable:

  • Mister Moses (1965) - no trace of master
  • Raise The Titanic (1980) - no trace of master

Scores not in any other category but with a reasonable chance of a release, one day:

  • The Tamarind Seed - master missing
  • My Sister's Keeper

Finally, a list of scores that might see a release if they contain sufficient music, the masters still exist, and are licensable:

  • Bells 
  • They Might Be Giants
  • Touched By Love
  • Eleanor & Franklin
  • The White House Years
  • The War Between The Tates
  • The Gathering
  • Young Joe, The Forgotten Kennedy
  • Willa
  • Svengali

Note that some of the above TV movies have only 20 minutes or so of original music.

You may also wish to check out our Bootbusters page in case you wonder why you can find titles online that are mentioned above.

John Barry film scores where some original music still remains unreleased on CD in expanded format:

  • Beat Girl
  • From Russia With Love
  • Goldfinger
  • Born Free
  • Deadfall
  • Midnight Cowboy
  • Last Valley
  • Mary, Queen of Scots
  • Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
  • The Man With Golden Gun
  • The Day of the Locust
  • Moonraker
  • Somewhere in Time
  • Octopussy
  • Cotton Club
  • A View To a Kill
