John Barry's Drumbeat
27-Jul-2010 - Silva Screen Records has released Drumbeat. In April 1959 Drumbeat hit the air on BBC with bandleader John Barry as musical director. The programme’s format was experimental for the time and the series only ran until the beginning of September. This extensive collection highlights some of John Barry’s earliest work as a performer and composer and includes tracks issued for the very first time on CD. The album features John Barry’s first recording with Adam Faith, Ah Poor Little Baby!, plus his secret musical identity as the John Prendy Orchestra backing The Three Barry Sisters. The CD is accompanied by a 20 page booklet focusing on the history of this seminal programme, penned by Geoff Leonard & Pete Walker, pre-eminent experts on Barry’s career and authors of John Barry - The Man With The Midas Touch.
