I bought a cassette tape of this score a long time ago. I don't think it was authorised. Has anyone heard of how this release was done, possibly three decades ago. It was a good recording. And a good score.

I'm afraid I can't shed any light on the cassette tape you are describing. You probably know this already, but the CD release (complete score, supposedly) can still be had at Screen Archives, very reasonably priced:

Good luck re the cassette release info.

A John Barry fan called Ian McDonald got it from the company that was promoting the film.

I think Ian worked in the press at the time.

Cheers
