La-La Land Records, Universal Pictures, and Geffen proudly present a Limited Edition remastered and expanded CD reissue of renowned composer John Barry’s (GOLDFINGER, OUT OF AFRICA, DANCES WITH WOLVES) original motion picture score to the beloved 1980 big screen romantic fantasy-drama SOMEWHERE IN TIME, directed by Jeannot Szwarc and starring Christopher Reeve, Jane Seymour and Christopher Plummer. Barry’s rich, gorgeous orchestral score perfectly embodies this heartfelt and heartbreaking romantic classic, enriching it with a resonating melodic and thematic timelessness that is vital to the film’s powerful sentimental allure. As the director himself states, “John’s music gave the film everything it needed. I still think it’s his most beautiful score – and one of the most beautiful scores in the history of film.”
Produced, mastered and edited from studio vault elements by Mike Matessino, this expanded CD is limited to 5000 units and features never-before-released score cues and additional music, including the music box arrangement of Rachmaninoff Rhapsody, Barry’s original music for Elise’s stage show, two previously unheard arrangements of the Somewhere In Time theme, and more! The exclusive, in depth liner notes are by journalist and author Jon Burlingame and the timeless art design is by Jim Titus.

Broadcaster and concert producer Tommy Pearson has revealed via Facebook that he is currently working on a new double CD of John Barry music:
"So proud and excited that a project I've been working on for the last few months with my dear friend Pirmin Zängerle has finally - at the 3rd attempt (thanks to Covid) - started recording!
A new double-CD of music by John Barry, played by the City Light Symphony Orchestra and Anthony Gabriele in the fabulous acoustic of the KKL, Lucerne.
I am co-producing the CD with Pirmin and I edited, digitised and prepared the vast majority of the music with final prep done by the amazing Lillie Harris. Acres of fabulous music, of course, mostly taken from the JB originals plus orchestrations/arrangements via Nick Dodd and Nic Raine. Liner notes will be by Jon Burlingame and there will be a special introduction written by Laurie Barry.
We are also recording some extra James Bond tracks by the 'other' Bond composers, including David Arnold, Marvin Hamlisch, Michael Kamen and John Altman that will be available as download extras.
I'm gutted that I can't actually be at the sessions (because of Covid restrictions, of course). But everything is in the best hands."
Mit seinem dritten Album greifen Pure Desmond einen Themenkosmos auf, der an Variationen zwar von Anfang an ungeheuer reich war, dem aber ein derart kammermusikalisch abgestimmter Zugang bisher fehlte: James Bond. Der Filter, durch den die ikonischen Big-Band-Arrangements der 1960er Jahre ebenso betrachtet werden wie die Popsongs, die seit den 70ern in unterschiedlichster stilistischer Ausrichtung verwendet wurden, ist Paul Desmonds unverkennbarer Cool-Jazz- Sound. Ihn beherrscht das Hamburger Jazzquartett Pure Desmond um Lorenz Hargassner, Johann Weiß, Christian Flohr und Sebastian Deufel wie niemand sonst. Trotz eines Entstehungszeitraums von mittlerweile fast 60 Jahren und stilistisch völlig unterschiedlicher Entwicklungen schaffen es Pure Desmond, allen Stücken einen bisher unvermuteten Facettenreichtum zu entlocken. Und immer auch eine wunderbar subtile Seite mit Witz und Raffinement, gediegenem Glamour und spätabendlicher Entspanntheit, die dennoch keine Sekunde lang verhehlt, dass der nächste Schurke jederzeit auf den Plan treten und den Zustand höchster Spannung im Handumdrehen zurückbringen kann – oder der nächste Flirt schon an der Bar darauf wartet, Teil einer legendären Sammlung zu werden. Der Querschnitt des Albums reicht von Monty Normans originalem Thema über John Barrys Variationen und neue Stücke bis zu den Songs der Gegenwart: Durch den Desmond-Filter gewinnt man so nicht nur eine neue Perspektive auf Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan und Daniel Craig, sondern auch auf Matt Monro, Nancy Sinatra, Louis Armstrong, Shirley Bassey, Sheryl Crow, Madonna oder Billie Eilish. Bemerkenswert sind nebenbei auch die Locations, in denen die Aufnahmen entstanden sind: im Versteck des Oberschurken – dem Alpine Room im Piz Gloria, Blofelds Hauptquartier in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, an Bord eines Militärtransporters – im Laderaum eines Airbus A400M Atlas des LTG62 in Wunstorf und in einem dunklen, versteckten Gewölbekeller – dem Würzburger Keller Z87. Audio-CD mit Booklet.
Tracklisting: The James Bond theme, From Russia with love, We have all the time in the world, Die another day, Diamonds are forever, Licence to kill, Nobody does It better, You know my name, Tomorrow never dies, No time to die, You only live twice

Vladimir Nabokov's "Lolita" is one of the best selling novels of all time...
The MIT Awards Dinner 1999.
The Music Industry Trusts award has two aims: to raise money for the nominated charities, and to honour an individual who has made a significant contribution to the UK music industry.
Originating in 1992, the winner in 1999 was John Barry OBE, who joined an exclusive band which now includes Andrew Lloyd Webber; Alan “Fluff” Freeman; Sir George Martin; Sir Elton John and his partner in song, Bernie Taupin; Sir Michael Parkinson; Kylie Minogue OBE; Sir Tom Jones; Annie Lennox OBE; and that bastard Michael Eavis CBE.
Held at The Grosvenor House Hotel in London, where John Barry and his group, The John Barry Seven, had entertained New Year revellers in the late 1950s, many photos of the occasion were taken and can be seen here, courtesy of ......... :
Attended by Adam Faith, Sir Michael Parkinson, Don Black and Bill Kenwright with performances by David McCalmont and David Arnold.

"An uplifting family drama based on the real life experiences of Robin Lee Graham who, at the age of sixteen, began a solo circumnavigation of the world in his small boat – the youngest person ever to do so."
"Kritzerland is proud to present a new 2-CD set, a live soundboard recording of the infamous musical:
LOLITA, MY LOVE - Music by John Barry Lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner.
Back in the 1970s, producer Bruce Kimmel came into possession of a complete soundboard tape in pretty decent sound. And it is from that tape, possibly first generation, from which this CD has been mastered. For this release, all the major songs have separate tracks and all the dialogue has separate tracks. That way, one can program the CD however they like � just the score or hearing it all. Mastering engineer, James Nelson, has worked his magic, smoothing out the levels and making it all of a piece."
"Quartet Records, in collaboration with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Capitol Records, Universal Music Enterprises and the Phil Ramone estate, present an expanded 2-CD edition of the iconic score for the landmark film MIDNIGHT COWBOY, directed by John Schlesinger in 1969, starring Dustin Hoffman and Jon Voight, and winner of three Academy Awards, including Best Picture.
For this new Quartet release, the classic 1969 soundtrack album has been mastered from first-generation master tapes on Disc 1 and supplemented with new mixes made from recently discovered multi-track tapes, that includes some alternate song versions, different vocals of the Nilsson song, and alternate and single versions prepared by John Barry of his famous original theme. On Disc 2 we have included the music (both songs and score) as it appears in the film, mastered from mono elements vaulted at MGM. Score and album were in part different recordings; the harmonica solos, played by Toots Thielemans in the film, were played by Tommy Reilly on the album.
This collection has been produced, restored, mixed and mastered by Chris Malone, and the 24-page booklet includes authoritative and exclusive in-depth liner notes by Jon Burlingame."
