Finger point with the turn away

To cool


Happy birthday Mr Barry


Just watched Thunderball and Dr No on blu ray
I read that they look better than they did when it was released- there right- it was like watching them for the first time- almost 3-D.

Well, with The Wrong Box on its way to me I'd like to join the chorus of birthday wishes to my favourite living composer.

What a wonderful job there with the Barry covers and birthday wishes. It's great that they included scores Barry has rarely (if ever) talked about: Follow Me, The Black Hole, Boom, etc.

will residually grace this year-long tribute many a richly memorable time ahead ...

The US vinyl LP cover that is ... the UK vinyl LP cover was far more realistic. I remember buying my copy in a local 2nd hand shop for about 50p in the 1970's - scratched and very rough but another wonderful addition to my collection.

Geoff's P-I-A CD release was most welcome.

True. And the score has had countless releases - very ironic considering the score's place in Barry's ouvre.

Ah, yes, but what's missing? First ones that come to mind are:
Americans, Petulia, Concert, Play It Again, various CBS/Columbia releases (Theme from The Persuaders! could be the representative album cover), Golden Child, the EMI Years, the Ember Years, Beyondness, Eternal Echoes, Man in the Middle, Howard the Duck, Legend of the Lone Ranger, Masquerade, Mercuring Rising, Moviola I & II, Playing By Heart, Ruby Cairo, Starcrash, Until September, White Buffalo, and Golden Seal.

I've probably missed one or two (or three or four) but it's late ...

A few years ago Mr. Kraft gave John a print/poster of a similar collection of album covers.

It included some not in this current poster, such as Play It Again, Until September/Starcrash, Ready When You Are J.B., Moviola, Legend of the Lone Ranger, Petulia, etc. Some of the others have different covers now, updated for subsequent CD releases. I expect he was just trying to ring the changes.

Too bad no label couldn't do anything for the composer's 75th anniversary.

Not to peevishly pick any proberbial nits (alliterative, ain't we?), Ace, but mayhap "wouldn't" and "can't" are more appropriate than "couldn't".

Also Interesting Historical Info Department:

Are any of the other Barryophiles aware of Philadelphia's Irish-born Commodore John Barry



a naval commander during the American Revolution the equal of John Paul Jones (but didn't have quite as good a press agent) who was given the title "Father of the American Navy" by his admiring contemporaries.



smile Who SAYS J.B. isn't a noble and time-honored pedigree ... wink

"You start working subconsciously very early on. For me, it’s usually a cleaning-out process of what not to do.



I find it easier to chip away (like a sculptor) to discover what the shape is. You can have a specific concept regarding how you want to go about something but, occasionally, it’s switched around by what’s on the screen. Everyone reads a script in a slightly different way, but it’s what you finally have up there on celluoid which you ultimately have to go with, not what you think the movie should’ve been - which is a fatal trap to fall into.



Any good film I’ve ever scored, the goodness of it has been there in the script and in the direction - which makes my job 10 times easier. I mean, it’s like you see a movie that good, you tend to say ‘You don’t need any music’, and then you have the luxury of riding on the crest of those marvelous moments. It’s like anything else – when the team’s good, and its working, there’s nothing more exhilarating. When it’s a little less than that, well … you adapt. The result of the piece of material you’re working on is what finally matters.



Moss Hart once said ‘Never say no when you mean yes and never say yes when you mean no’ – it’s that damn basic. It’s really rewarding when all the elements come together and everything takes off; I mean, that’s one thing you learn in this business: when it’s there,



everybody knows it.

- Interview, 1979 ...

First Percolatin' Barry Poll Department:

What was your first film or score of John's and - now pay attention, 007s - which was the one(s) that made you fall in admiration with his music?

Awright (since you insist) in order of importance, ours twas:



then



and



Truly transcendent thanx, Guv' ...

Neo, I think I answered this question - without you asking it - in my posting (in this thread) of 02 Nov.

The Variety ad was nifty, but I hope some of you Barryphiles bought the special issue and enjoyed actually READING it. Jon Burlingame did his usual superlative job on the tribute. (Some of you may remember I alerted the Board to this upcoming issue a few weeks ago. You're welcome.)

Cheers,

PJ

Of course, I read the whole article (I even corrected one of your links), so thank you very much!
