John Barry Great Movie Sounds of John Barry 180g LP
High Quality Pure Analogue 180g Virgin Vinyl LP!
He had them all – the James Bond girls and the incomparably smart Sean Connery.
But also Marlon Brando, Michael Caine, Robert Redford and Jane Fonda, who all
more or less danced after the director’s pipe, acted certainly with his music in
their ears. John Barry started his career in the most British manner possible –
as a film composer in the service of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth. The
characteristic "Bond Theme" for Dr. No, with its mysterious, clacking guitar
trailer supported by powerful brass, was indispensable for all following films
and rang in the ears of the villains and their henchmen for all time.
Alongside the fully orchestrated numbers from the James Bond films, the album
offers a wealth of very different music, such as the collage-like "The Chase"
with its intense 'walking' sound and the melancholy theme from "King Rat". Barry
lets the flutes rise up with airy and and subtle clouds of dissonant chords
("Séance On A Wet Afternoon"), creates barbed motives out of gentle sounds ("The
Ipcress File") and rolls out a warm carpet of strings for the programmatic
terrain of "Born Free", a true adventure story set in a game ward in Africa.
This Speakers Corner LP was remastered using pure analogue components only, from
