'Sounds for Spies & Private Eyes' is a musical movie and TV theme spectacular focusing on the spy, secret agent and cop shows that dominated both big and small screens in the 1960s and 70s.

Celebrating the jazz and funk genius of film score writers such as Lalo Schifrin, John Barry, Henry Mancini, Jerry Goldsmith, Roy Budd and many others, one can expect to hear perennial classics such as Pink Panther, Mission: Impossible and the James Bond Theme alongside a choice selection of cult classics from, what is truly, a golden era'.

Walkabout released on both vinyl and CD

Friday, 25 November 2016 12:56 Written by

walkabout lp tSourced from the original stereo master tapes.

Label – The Roundtable
Artist – John Barry
Title – Walkabout Soundtrack
Cat# - PM001LP (order LP) / PM001CD (pre-order CD)
Format – Vinyl LP / CD / Digital
LP Barcode – 643597936569

release dates: 11/11/2016 (vinyl) and 9/12/2016 (CD)

A lost paradise, a lost innocence, and a lost culture; these are the dominant themes presented in Nicolas Roeg’s 1971 masterpiece Walkabout, a survival story of two children lost in the scorched Australian wilderness. Together with other seminal Australian surrealistic outback films, (e.g. Wake In Fright) Walkabout was a film that reshaped the Australian film industry and defined the country’s New Wave.

On the cusp of the film’s 45th anniversary it is pertinent to observe that for decades the film’s original soundtrack has also been considered lost.

Composed and conducted by the acclaimed British film composer John Barry, the score is a hallucinogenic mix of exotic romanticism, children’s nursery rhyme and potent psychedelic experimentation.

For decades, the consensus among soundtrack circles was that the master tapes were officially missing with little chance that the music would ever see a legitimate release, but The Roundtable is pleased to announce that this is no longer the case.

The complete soundtrack to one of cinema history’s most visually spellbinding films has now finally been re-discovered, sourced from the original stereo master tapes and prepared to the guidelines of the original ill-fated 1970s LP release.

The Walkabout soundtrack is released in conjunction with the lost film music to Peter Weir’s 1977 existential eco-horror The Last Wave, composed by Charles Wain.

  • The premiere soundtrack release to Nicolas Roeg’s 1971 New Wave Masterpiece.
  • Lost hallucinogenic score from acclaimed film composer John Barry.
  • Sourced from the original stereo master tapes.
  • Deluxe packaging including archival film stills and original press material.
  • 12 track 180g vinyl LP and 6-panel digipak CD

Quartet Records releases CD of The Last Valley

Friday, 11 November 2016 14:34 Written by

11th November 2016

Quartet Records and Universal Music Group present the long-awaited remastered reissue of John Barry’s absolute classic.

The Last Valley is a historical drama set during the Thirty Years’ War (1618–1648). It was directed by James Clavell in 1971. A mercenary soldier (Michael Caine) and a teacher (Omar Sharif), each fleeing the religious war in southern Germany, accidentally find the valley, untouched by the war, and live there in peace.

Following his historical success with The Lion in Winter in 1968, John Barry was a natural choice for this film. Followed the same year by Mary, Queen of Scots, and by Robin and Marian in 1976, the four films form an essential historical tetralogy in Barry’s career. In The Last Valley, the composer provides a score of thunderous orchestral power, aggressive action cues and haunting choral writing. The score remains one of the most valued and appreciated by his fans.

The album was originally released in 1972 by Dunhill Records, where the composer and record producer Phil Ramone reordered the material for a better listening experience, and incorporated music not heard in the final cut of the picture. That album was reissued on CD in 2007 by Intrada. (James Fitzpatrick produced an excellent recording of the complete score conducted by Nic Raine for Silva Screen in 2001.)

For this new edition of the original LP tracks (the complete recording session recorded by John Richards at CTS sadly remains lost or destroyed.) Chris Malone has gone back to the original 2-track stereo tapes, courtesy of UMG, and remastered the album with a much improved and open sound, ensuring a more natural treble and a better low-end extension. The result is a new sound experience—the original score has never sounded so good. The CD is accompanied by a 16-page full-colour booklet with detailed liner notes by John Takis.

Over the last few years, a couple of people had contacted us about the possibility of purchasing and restoring John’s former property and asking for contact information.

One of them, a resident of Germany, duly set about purchasing it but received several warnings of likely problems from various consultants.

This is his story.

John Barry - "The Real ... John Barry"

Raise the Titanic - Vinyl Release

Tuesday, 06 September 2016 10:49 Written by

Raise The TitanicOn 30th September, John Barry's "Raise The Titanic" score will become the first in a new series of Silva Screen vinyl releases for the serious soundtrack collector.

The series will include scores of outstanding quality that for some reason or another exist in their best form as a recording made subsequently to the original soundtrack.

The film of Raise The Titanic was panned by both critics and audiences alike upon its release in 1980. However, although the music was almost universally admired, the masters were either lost or destroyed.

When Silva Screen embarked upon a series of recreations of previously unavailable Barry scores -- masterminded by Nic Raine & James Fitzpatrick  -- Raise The Titanic proved a very popular release, selling thousands of copies on CD.

Now aficionados of John Barry and/or Raise The Titanic have the opportunity to own a vinyl version of this classic score, hopefully for a sensible price!

On October 14th, Sony will release a budget-priced 3-CD box-set: "The Real .... John Barry."

It's similar in content to the previous Sony box-set, Themependium, but includes at least one track that wasn't on that one: Theme from "Romance for Guitar and Orchestra".  There may also be two versions of "The Ipcress File".

It appears this time all the vocals included on Themependium have been omitted, and we must hope that "Sleep Well My Darling" & "Mary, Queen of Scots" have been properly remastered!

It's a pity they have apparently not included the "b" side version of The Lion In Winter featuring Alan Haven, but then, I don't suppose they knew about it.

John's elder sister, June, has died

Thursday, 11 August 2016 12:35 Written by

We are very sad to report that John's elder sister, June, died on 19th July, aged 86. She had been suffering from dementia for the last few years, but appeared in public in 2011 at a York concert held in  memory of her brother's life and career.

Mrs Lloyd Jones was a talented oil-painter who often exhibited locally. Her husband, David was a potter of some renown, the couple having met at Guildford School of Art. Previously, like John, June had attended the Bar Convent School, before studying at York School of Art.

June and David married in York in 1955 and had four children: Simon, Caroline, Emma and Abigail. June had been widowed since the passing of her husband in 1994.
