Unreleased scores (1)

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.

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

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

at the

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

You can back the project and buy tickets here

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.

*Please note, this is a music only performance – no images or footage from the film will be shown, and Q The Music are not associated with EON, Danjaq LLC, or the James Bond Films in any way.
