Just listened to Frank Wilson’s What’s the Score podcast with Goodbye Lover screenwriter Ron Peer. They played some demos from John Barry’s rejected score. Sooooo Barry and fantastic. We. Need. This!!!!! Please!!!! Who can get this released?
They're all variations of the same theme in different styles and tempo.
Interestingly, round about the time he was funding the Prague recording of MISTER MOSES, Luc Van De Ven told me he was looking into funding a recording of the rejected GOODBYE LOVER score. Obviously it never happened, but he also told me a lot of the music had been recycled into something else, but didn't say what.
Bearing in mind part of the GOODBYE LOVER theme sounds a lot like one of the secondary themes in ENIGMA, I'm guessing the score Luc was referring to is ENIGMA.
How much was recycled, I wouldn't know. Maybe not even that much. Who knows.
I've been going on about this score for years. It was recorded, it exists. Director and Barry fan, Wayne Kramer has listened to it and yet it remains unreleased. Assumption has to be it is trapped in rights and legal hell. A real pity....
