Back in July of last year, CommanderBond.net had reported that a book celebrating the work of famed James Bond composer John Barry was planned for release later that year.
The book, John Barry – The Man with the Midas Touch, has since been delayed due to a ‘variety of reasons’, but publication is expected to occur sometime early this year.
As stated at JohnBarry.org.uk, (where the cover artwork can be viewed), details on how to pre-order at a discounted price will become available as soon as a publication date is made firm.
The biography consists of ‘approximately 260 pages of text split into 30 chapters, 16 pages of colour photos and 16 pages of black and white photos.’ Also included is a definitive film / discography and a foreword especially written by lyricist Don Black (who contributed to several Bond title themes).
007 fans best know Barry for his work as composer on the scores for 11 James Bond films, starting with 1963’s From Russia With Love and finally ending with 1987’s The Living Daylights.
