The Misadventures of a very Uncivil Servant
by Geoff Leonard and Pete Walker

Employed by the Civil Service and attached to MI6, he shares the name of a famous but fictional spy, but that is the only similarity. His success as a spy-catcher, crime-solver, gourmet and womaniser is matched only by the UK’s recent performances in the Eurovision Song Contest.
Oh, and he also cheats at cards and golf …..

A new John Barry CD is now available. “John Barry – The Early Years” is a compilation album focusing on the years 1959-1962, in which every track features a Barry arrangement or composition

The majority of tracks are making their début on CD, and Barry’s library music for Chappell is all together on one CD for the first time.

Play It Again Records CD catalogue offered the discerning listener a wide choice of digitally re-mastered recordings from film and television, and rare collections of work from the likes of Don Black and Ron Grainer.

The rest of the record industry was quick to jump on the bandwagon, but only Play It Again offered you comprehensive booklet information and a wealth of rare and interesting photographs.
