The Music

Nic Raine is Barry's most prolific interpreter of his film music, and this is another great example. Raine was Barry's long-time arranger and knows his sound. Together with the City of Prague Philharmonic, he records a lot of Barry's music that would not ordinarily be available. On this one you get a lot of rarities that would never be heard by most of Barry's fans such as music from Seance on a Wet Afternoon and The Betsy--music that will probably never be released in its original form. Even Walkabout is a rarity--its soundtrack releases on both LP and CD are bootlegs.
