I'm sorry for that e-mail; I made an attempt at translating latin humor into english but it never works. I do love your site.

Alex, I'm not kidding mate, you need to stop with these Barry hero worship threads. If you're not careful you're gonna start alienating folks here, and your obsession may turn other people OFF Barry's music which, I'm sure, is the last thing you want!

I'm just trying to get attention from labels. It DID work two months ago, you know...

Alex


That's not a bad idea Alex, more power to you. We could always use more Barry.smile

Alex,

Are you saying that Intrada released Mary Queen Of Scots because you campaigned for it? I really doubt it!

Believe it or not, the soundtrack labels have actually heard of John Barry. And they are very well aware of how commercially viable his scores are.

What's stopping Barry stuff coming out isn't a lack of awareness of who Barry is, what he's done and how good it is. Most of the label owners are Barry fans themselves. They're of that era when Barry was one of the biggest meal ticket names going. The problem is licensing. At different times, both FSM and Intrada have said they actively seek to release new Barry stuff but are limited by what's available for licensing at the time.

That said, by all means keep it up. You know I'm completely on your side for wanting these things released.

Cheers

Steve, my good friend, did you bother to read the whole thread? By getting their attention I mean things like "wait a few more weeks....", in other words, getting the labels to spill the beans on upcoming releases.
No label would ever release a score because I campaigned for it, LOL.

With the Paramount vault now open for mining, here’s hoping for a chance of THE DOVE seeing a CD release.

Perhaps, in this wonderful soundtrack renaissance period that we’ve entered, it’s a case of prioritisation!

Cheers
Chris

The complaints about Harkit are basically two: One, that their releases were not properly licensed, and two, that the sources of their CDs were LPs.

Any chance of a better CD release of this nice score by JB?

I'd like to think so but am not optimistic. Either ABC have shown no interest in releasing this score or the tapes and/or paperwork are missing. This has allowed Harkit to step in and release their LP transfer with little risk that the owners will assert their rights.

I once emailed Harkit congratulating them on releasing 'The Dove' when others had failed. Guess what? No reply.

I have a decent LP transfer cdr from a non Harkit source and will make do with that.

Superb Barry score, by the way.

Peter, could you please e-mail me off-board? My address is in my profile.

Many thanks.

EDIT: Peter, my apologies. Turns out my e-mail address doesn't, in fact appear. Could you, instead, use david (at) davidferstat.com

Many thanks.

I can't believe I actually read 'stop the hero worship threads' on this site!!
That's exactly what this site is all about - our devotion to these great, (largely) unheralded artists (HEROES!!) and their work. DAMN, just keep posting about your love for these composers and their music - even Hans Zimmer. I don't have to agree with you but you have the right.

Re: I (o)wn the Harkit CD and it seems fine to me. What's the problem with the label ?

The above comment takes us back nearly 4 years and I had snapped up the Harkit CD as soon as it was released, and never had a problem with it. I had long been playing tapes I had made off of cable broadcasts of the film, so the CD was an enormous improvement over that. I streamed the film a few times via Netflix and could never find a DVD of it, and then, except for playing the CD, have sort of forgotten about it. Did they ever release the film on DVD? This is the only discussion I could find here when I searched for "The Dove." I see Amazon has the "new" VHS at $169.99 and used copies for $32.86! Holy Grail, Batman!!!

The Harkit CD is just about OK if you want a factory pressed CD of the LP, which is far from complete. Personally this is one of the films and scores that cemented my love of all things John Barry. The score remains an all time favourite and ultimate grail title for me, so I continue to hope that Intrada or La La Land do their usual superb job of expanding this genuine Barry gem soon.

As to a DVD release, I stumbled across this only this morning.

http://www.dvdfilmclassics.com/the-dove.html

I have ordered a copy and will post my opinion/verdict when it has arrived and I have had a chance to look at it. After silly prices for pan and scan laser discs and old VHS copies on eBay and Amazon, hopefully this release will be the real deal.

I hope I'm wrong but I suspect this might be a VHS or off air transfer. From elsewhere on the the DVDfilmclassics site:

The work has entered 'public domain’ because either the copyright was never applied for or has expired. Anything that is not protected under the copyright law, this includes all works published between 1928 and under certain conditions works published up to 1978 can be re-published.
A work can be anything a book, a play, a piece of music, photographs, movies, instruction manuals, a poster etc. Re-published and re-packaging 'public domain' information or creative works is not illegal, because the work has fallen into 'public domain' there are no royalties to pay.

I've usually been pretty good at detecting LP-sourced CDs, and after posting my earlier comment today, I listened to the entire score twice during a long walk and never heard a single example of LP surface noise. So keep hoping for your holy grail, but I'll continue to blissfully enjoy this CD.
