The Concert John Barry

Friday, 29 January 2010 13:01

"Being one of the lucky ones, I attended the 1972 Filmharmonic Concert at RAH that this album was based on. More...

Prior to the album being released, Gordon Gray, who was A&R man at Polydor and in charge of the albums release, advised me over the phone that the arrangement of 'Zulu' played in the concert - much more dramatic and vibrant than the original, togeher with 'The Knack' and 'ipcress' were 'on the list' for inclusion on the album. Alas, they never made it.

So, I presume they are gathering dust somewhere, possibly never to be heard................ unless, of course Sony (Universal, ed.) have access to ALL the tracks recorded for the album and include them, but I'm not holding my breath!!"

Travels with Charlie

Travels with Charlie

Barry bought the rights and planned to act as composer/producer with segments to be directed by people like Kevin C. I seem to recall that Jim Wilson might have been a co-producer? Not sure! Barry publicised this quite a lot in the sweep of post-Dances popularity but (obviously) it never arrived.

The Incredibles

2004
The Incredibles

Worked on this for some time but apparently the studio did not agree with his take. There seems to have been a misunderstanding as director Brad Bird hired him on the basis that he would write a score which was a pastiche of his James Bond scores.  Barry had no intention of scoring it that way and even his trailer music was replaced by a real Bond theme - OHMSS!  They could not agree and Barry left.

Composer: Michael Giacchino

Thomas and the Magic Railroad

Thursday, 19 February 2015 12:21

Thomas and the Magic Railroad

Barry was initially very enthusiastic about this (his son was a big fan of the stories) and wrote several songs with Don Black. However, he eventually decided the film was not going the way he had envisaged and left.

Composer: Hummie Mann

Tom's Midnight Garden

Thursday, 19 February 2015 12:20

1999
Tom's Midnight Garden

Director Willard Carroll wanted Barry (him being a big fan), made one phone call just to check out availability but there was never any discussion beyond that.

Composer: Debbie Wiseman

Goodbye Lover

Thursday, 19 February 2015 12:19

1999
Goodbye Lover

Wrote and recorded full score. However, the film's writer, Ron Peer, who was delighted that John was the composer, believes he did not want to "lighten" his score in certain places as required by the director during the editing process. Hence John Ottman was brought in to write a replacement score. It's worth noting that actress Ellen DeGeneres claimed that test audiences reacted badly to the film originally ending with her character being killed, so she was called back to re-shoot the ending.

Composer: John Ottman

The End Of The Affair

Thursday, 19 February 2015 12:19

1999
The End Of The Affair

Wrote demo theme, presumably rejected. It's now a track on Eternal Echoes.

Composer: Michael Nyman

The Horse Whisperer

Thursday, 19 February 2015 12:18

1998
The Horse Whisperer

Wrote and recorded several demo themes but disagreements with director Robert Redford led to him leaving the project. He did not compose and record a complete score, as has been suggested.

Composer: Thomas Newman
