    Not the first time when JNH thanks Hans. He famously thanked Zimmer on Waterworld, because JNH used some of his samples and potentially Hans delivered some electronic programming on that one.


    So Zimmer actually had something to do with that mediocre score? smile


    just to make sure I'm right about this! You're calling Waterworld mediocre?

    I'm surprised by that comment too, Waterworld is a very good score.

    Oh and D, I do like JNH's KING KONG and yes, I'll take more of that over his recent output any day.

    I don't like Waterworld at all; at least this is what i remember from those listens so many years back.
    Love Maintitles. It's full of Wanders.

    WATERWORLD is my favourite JNH score and one of my alltime favourites in general. I even like the film....I guess you could call it a 'guilty pleasure'.

    As for Jane Birkin, she was smokin' hot back in the day. Now she looks kinda 'butch', though. As opposed to, say, Catherine Deneuve, who is still a very attractive woman at age 68!
    I am extremely serious.

    IMO, one of JNH's best scores and one of the best action scores ever written!

    It's the score that has EVERYTHING -- the heroic action music, the suspense cues, the religioso underwater music, the glorious ethereal swimming cue, exotic percussion en masse, beautiful love/relationship themes.....I can never tire of it, even though I must have played it more than 100 times over the years.

  4. Yeah, I'm not a big fan of that one either, though I like parts of it.

    Have you tried listening to it underwater? Maybe that will help.

    Oh man, thanks for bringing this to my attention Bregt, I've never heard this before, it's gorgeous and brought a tear to my eye, a sublime version.

    I guess you know that Toots plays on the original?

    I've gone Barry-crazy lately!

    I've always been fond of Barry, not least his Bond-scores, but my Barry-collection has been relatively small until recently.

    But back in January, I began reviewing all the Bond-scores for my own website (alas, in Danish), and during the course of listening to the Barry Bonds through the year, I began to get seriously fascinated with Barry and his entire history.

    So I've been spending (too much) money, getting a whole lot of stuff (although not nearly enough) - ranging from his 1960s stuff up until the end of his film scoring career - and also some of the stuff he did with the JB7 back in the late 50s and early 60s.

    I have to say, even though Barry wasn't new to me, I've been absolutely delighted to truly discover the breadth of his compositional talent. Much of what I knew before this year was constrained to the Bond-scores, his later epic style (particularly Out of Africa and Dances with Wolves) and a few other bits and pieces here and there.

    Listening to scores such as The Lion in Winter, The Quiller Memorandum and The Knack have made me appreciate Barry even more. There is so much insanely high quality stuff here! This is really one of the great joys of listening to film music - that even though you may be superficially acquainted with a composer, so often times you discover that there's so much more to be found.
    Luminous beings are we.. Not this crude matter.

  6. Since you don´t mention it - maybe you know it, but just in case - if you like The Lion in Winter, make sure you check out The Last Valley, too. They complement each other nicely.

    Does anyone of the Barry completists out there know of other scores which might belong to the same pack?

    Last Valley and Lion In Winter is about it. I guess Mary Queen of Scots belongs on the periphery of those too. Such a shame he didn't get the opportunity to write more in that style, he excelled in historical drama.

    Though very different in style I absolutely adore his choral score for WALKABOUT, the Silva rerecording is sublime.

  7. Thanks for the info about Mary. I didn´t mention it because it originally came with the Lion in Winter Rerecording anyway, but I forgot that there´s a complete edition out there. I´ll check it out.

    I´m listening to Walkabout right now. I see why you mentioned it. smile

    Thanks.

    cool

    Intrada's Mary Queen of Scots isn't complete but it's well worth getting. Though it's short at about 30 minutes it's one of my most listened to Barry scores.

    Have you ever heard STAR CRASH? cheesy

    THE ICE PLANET / HEADING FOR ZARKON

    The main theme is good fun too, the pictures here will give you an idea of how "good" the film is but hey, on the plus side there's the gorgeously stunning Caroline Monroe ( you'll also spot a pre-Baywatch David Hasselhof )

    STAR CRASH

    It's one of those scores that devides Barry fans, I know a lot that don't like it but I've always had a fond spot for it. Carumba but I was still living with my parents when I first bought this. dizzy

    JOHN BARRY RADIO INTERVIEW

    A really good interview with JB talking about the songs and scores for Goldfinger and Thunderball. I love listening to JB, he comes across as a very warm human being.
