Description

"If you think in terms of the sixties as a revolution in England, it was music-led. The Beatles led the rock 'n' roll and John Barry led the movie music." - MICHAEL CAINE.

"John's got this facility of writing a tune, a very simple tune and that's the most difficult one to write of all. The one that you think you must have heard somewhere before but you haven't and he's got the gift. It's quite hard to write a simple tune. It's quite easy to write a complicated one." - GEORGE MARTIN.

A three CD box set released in association with Geoff Leonard, biographer and world authority on the life and work of the great British film composer, John Barry..The edition includes every single John Barry Seven A & B side published between 1957 and 1962 in true mono housed together under one roof for the very first time. A unique opportunity to listen to these seminal recordings as they were originally heard..The first bona fide CD appearance of the "Stringbeat" LP in mono, together with various singles also making their mono debuts on CD. A chronological audio history of the group combined with authoritative booklet notes and rare period photos/images..The inclusion of impossible rarities, including the debut CD release of the original version of 'Three Little Fishes' plus many sought-after Chappell Music Library recordings. A fascinating insight into John Barry's early work as a film composer, comprising as it does The James Bond Theme and his scores for Beat Girl, Never Let Go and The Amorous Prawn.
