According to Geoff Leonard's Barry website, a previously unreleased track from The Concert John Barry will be released. There is no indication on what cd it will be released, or what the track is, but the track will most likely be one of the following, which Barry conducted at the corresponding concert:

The Knack
The Lion in Winter
The Persuaders
Zulu
Theme from Romance For Guitar and Orchestra
The Quiller Memorandum
We Have All the Time in the World

I thought that only Zulu and The Lion In Winter had been recorded for possible inclusion on the Concert album, but I could be mistaken on that point.

Of the two, The Lion In Winter would be more interesting as the concert version of Zulu has been recorded on other albums.

Cheers

Stephen, The tracks I listed were not necessarily recorded for the album, but as they were performed at the concert, I assumed that whatever outtake tracks were recorded were taken from something performed live.

And not only has Zulu been done by JB on compilations, The Lion in Winter has never been done by Barry on a compilation in any form resembling what appeared in the movie. I'd be really curious to hear what he would do with The Lion in Winter sans chorus.

Another interesting question would be on what kind of release this track will be included? "Boom"? "Follow Me"? I think Geoff would have mentioned - which makes me assume that it will be a compilation of previously available Polydor stuff.

That always sounds very strange to me, that recording without chorus.

I do not believe the concert itself was recorded, so I assume whatever they've got is unused material from the studio session.

MR Woolston is correct as usual

I fear Stefan is correct and that this will be another compilation of the Polydor recordings. One can always hope for Boom or Follow Me and be pleasantly surprised should they appear. I agree with Stephen that a "concert" recording of The Lion in Winter would be preferred over Zulu or other titles.

While I appreciate the Universal France Barry releases, one wishes they would have included the original artwork from The Concert and Americans albums and, particularly the liner notes to Americans.
But, on balance, I'm glad we have them and that someone is still working to release archived Barry recordings.
Best,
Stan
