John Barry - "The Real ... John Barry"

Raise the Titanic - Vinyl Release

Tuesday, 06 September 2016 10:49

Raise The TitanicOn 30th September, John Barry's "Raise The Titanic" score will become the first in a new series of Silva Screen vinyl releases for the serious soundtrack collector.

The series will include scores of outstanding quality that for some reason or another exist in their best form as a recording made subsequently to the original soundtrack.

The film of Raise The Titanic was panned by both critics and audiences alike upon its release in 1980. However, although the music was almost universally admired, the masters were either lost or destroyed.

When Silva Screen embarked upon a series of recreations of previously unavailable Barry scores -- masterminded by Nic Raine & James Fitzpatrick  -- Raise The Titanic proved a very popular release, selling thousands of copies on CD.

Now aficionados of John Barry and/or Raise The Titanic have the opportunity to own a vinyl version of this classic score, hopefully for a sensible price!

On October 14th, Sony will release a budget-priced 3-CD box-set: "The Real .... John Barry."

It's similar in content to the previous Sony box-set, Themependium, but includes at least one track that wasn't on that one: Theme from "Romance for Guitar and Orchestra".  There may also be two versions of "The Ipcress File".

It appears this time all the vocals included on Themependium have been omitted, and we must hope that "Sleep Well My Darling" & "Mary, Queen of Scots" have been properly remastered!

It's a pity they have apparently not included the "b" side version of The Lion In Winter featuring Alan Haven, but then, I don't suppose they knew about it.

John's elder sister, June, has died

Thursday, 11 August 2016 12:35

We are very sad to report that John's elder sister, June, died on 19th July, aged 86. She had been suffering from dementia for the last few years, but appeared in public in 2011 at a York concert held in  memory of her brother's life and career.

Mrs Lloyd Jones was a talented oil-painter who often exhibited locally. Her husband, David was a potter of some renown, the couple having met at Guildford School of Art. Previously, like John, June had attended the Bar Convent School, before studying at York School of Art.

June and David married in York in 1955 and had four children: Simon, Caroline, Emma and Abigail. June had been widowed since the passing of her husband in 1994.

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.
