The Cool MikadoFirst CD release for "The Cool Mikado". "The Legendary el Records Returns To celebrate the forthcoming reactivation of el records, the label is pleased to be instigating a programme to re-release authentic, stylish, highly regarded and long deleted original film soundtracks from the sixties beginning with Michael Winner's 1962 Gilbert & Sullivan film parody 'The Cool Mikado' (ACME 34CD).

The soundtrack features original music by the John Barry Seven, songs performed in characteristic style by Frankie Howerd and comic sketches involving Tommy Cooper, Mike & Bernie Winters, Pete Murray and Stubby Kaye.

Initially released on Parlophone, has been deleted almost four decades and is a highly prized collectors item with original copies (if they can be found at all) fetching in excess of £100.

Therefore, this stylish re-issue of 'The Cool Mikado' is sure to be welcomed by film buffs, el aficionados and (indeed) the record-buying public alike.

The cd is available through the online ordering service on the Cherryred website.

It is of course available in all good record shops as well (information provided by Cherryred).

For those interested, sleeves and tracks list for THE IPCRESS FILE and MASQUERADE are now on the Silva Screen web-site, although the IPCRESS FILE is not quite correct as the dialogue tracks are not as yet listed. James Fitzp.

"Don't support this release, wait until the SILVA CD of IPCRESS FILE comes out. And maybe in two or three years someone will be able to revisit BILLION DOLLAR BRAIN." Ford A. Thaxton.

Masquerade

3rd March 2002: Ford A. Thaxton reported to the John Barry discussion group that next week he is going into the studio and edit and master the album. Right now the plan is to have the CD contain the entire score and then a suite of original source cues that Barry composed for the film (i.e like the HAMMETT CD).
After it's assembled, he is going to submit to both MGM and John Barry for their approval.
Assuming they wish no changes, work begins on the artwork and such. The CD will sound great!!! The the original 32 Digital masters were discovered, so it will sound better then ever.

James FitzPatrick wrote: Having now spoken to "the horse's mouth" - namely Luc of Prometheus Records, I can inform you that MAY will be the official release month for Masquerade and that it is more likely to be late May rather than early.

This is because Prometheus are releasing FLESH & BLOOD in March and they like to have a bit of a gap between each release. This also makes perfect economic sense as being a small label there is always the cinsideration of outgoings, cashflow etc...

Ford A. Thaxton reports on the John Barry discussion group "After a rather long search we just this week found the digital multi-track masters to the score and production on the master started on Friday.

It will be coming out very shortly, it will be the next release from the PROMETHEUS Club right after the expanded CD release of FLESH + BLOOD by Basil Poledouris.

The sound is INCREDIBLE!!! It will be well worth the wait."

Silva Screen "have no plans this year (2002) to record any more John Barry. Silva Screen have now recorded about all the Barry music that they want to (in excess of 600 minutes worth). So it will need a generous benefactor, ala Geoff Leonard, to get any more Barry albums done." (James FitzPatrick, Silva Screen.)
