Broadway to Main Street - John Barry

Tuesday, 29 September 2020 11:48

Broadway to Mainstreet - John BarryLaurence Maslon has produced and hosted a radio program/podcast in the United States called "Broadway to Main Street" that celebrates theater music in all its various incarnations.

Occasionally, he does a throw to music from the cinema. He wanted to do a John Barry episode for a long time, where he could share some of Barry's stage music with his audience.  

This episode can be found on various platforms at:  https://broadwaytomainstreet.libsyn.com/john-barry

Bang tRecently published in the US is Crime and Spy Jazz on Screen, 1950–1970: A History and Discography, by the appropriately named Derrick Bang.

It has 312 pages, and, apparently, devotes more space to John Barry than any other composer in the book!

At $45 it is not exactly cheap, but when has that ever worried anybody who browses on here. :)

There's also a companion book entitled Crime and Spy Jazz on Screen Since 1971: A History and Discography.


News has just reached us that a previously unreleased outtake from the Polydor album The Concert JB will soon be released in the Universal Music France soundtrack series Ecoutez le cinéma! (Listen to Films!).

Let the guessing begin!

From Harry Saltzman, the producer of James Bond classics Dr. No, Goldfinger, Thunderball and On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, comes a film widely recognized as one of the greatest spy thrillers of all time. The Ipcress File is the first film in the series of Harry Palmer mysteries, based on the bestsellers by Len Deighton (Funeral in Berlin), that made Michael Caine (Gambit, The Black Windmill) a star. It is the height of the cold war, and ex-thief Harry Palmer (Caine), now reluctantly working as a secret agent, has been called in to investigate a strange occurrence among a number of leading scientists. It seems the scientists have been kidnapped, but reappear only days after the kidnapping, brainwashed and useless. During the course of the investigation, a tape is uncovered with the word “Ipcress” on it. This stylish classic was directed by Sidney J. Furie (The Appaloosa), shot by Otto Heller (Peeping Tom) and edited by Peter R. Hunt (From Russia with Love), with production design by Ken Adam (Dr. Strangelove) and music by John Barry (Diamonds Are Forever). The great cast includes Nigel Green (Let’s Kill Uncle), Guy Doleman (Billion Dollar Brain), Sue Lloyd (The Bitch) and Gordon Jackson (The Great Escape).

From acclaimed writer/director James Clavell (Shogun, The Great Escape, To Sir, with Love, The Satan Bug), the stirring war epic The Last Valley stars screen greats Michael Caine (The Ipcress File, Kidnapped) and Omar Sharif (Juggernaut, Doctor Zhivago). As the Thirty Years’ War rages through 17th-century Germany, a fierce captain (Caine) lays waste to any village his army encounters. But when he arrives in an undisturbed valley where he meets a beautiful peasant girl (Florinda Bolkan, Flavia the Heretic), his long-dead memories of peace and happiness are reawakened. As war closes in, will he heed its call... or fight for the new life he has found? This powerful film is both a magnificent spectacle and an intensely personal story of love, friendship and loss. Co-starring Nigel Davenport (Mary, Queen of Scots), Per Oscarsson (Endless Night) and Arthur O’Connell (Anatomy of a Murder), with a rousing score by the great John Barry (The Lion in Winter) and top-notch cinematography by Norman Warwick (The Abominable Dr. Phibes) and John Wilcox (Dr. Who and the Daleks).
