In the late 1960s and early 70s, John Barry was at his creative peak, writing both his greatest Bond music for On Her Majesty’s Secret Service and the score for the Oscar-winning Midnight Cowboy within a few months of each other. As one decade melted into the next, Barry would provide a host of haunting, highly atmospheric scores: The Appointment, Deadfall, Mary Queen Of Scots, Follow Follow, with possibly his finest ever saved for Nicolas Roeg’s masterpiece Walkabout. He also found time to write the deathless theme for TV series The Persuaders.

“The More Things Change” collects Barry’s finest work from this period, including the whole of 1970’s classic “Ready When You Are, J.B.” album, released on CD for the very first time. In addition, it collects loose ends from the period (including selections from 1968’s lost Richard Lester classic Petulia), then follows Barry into the early 70s.

It has been compiled by music writer and John Barry superfan Bob Stanley, with extensive sleeve notes and a gorgeous selection of ephemera.

2022 will also see the publication of “Music By John Barry”, a 500-page book covering his greatest scores.

Britain’s greatest soundtrack composer, with few rivals around the world, “The More Things Change” is John Barry at his absolute best.
