According to the list prepared by Vic Lanza when he was compiling the John Barry – The EMI Years series, some tracks remain unreleased.

However, it’s possible they were retitled and released as were some in the following list.

Some comments:

Interesting to see the Moonraker track listed and also Man in the Middle.

The two A Matter of Who tracks are curious since they are much longer than the version that *was* released.

Little Old-fashioned Love & Throw All Your Lovin’ My way are both JB vocals. They were eventually recorded and released by Larry Page.

The “Michael Angelo” track was recorded a couple of weeks after Roman Spring/Tears.

Walk Don’t Run (Orchestra Only) is very odd. Orchestra on Walk Don’t Run?
