Out On Blue Six : John Barry

It's time to share the daddy of all film composers on Out On Blue Six, the late great John Barry. Here's just a selection of the outstanding soundtrack work he gave us, from the 1960s, starting with the apt 'Space March' from the Bond film You Only Live Twice, followed by his theme for The Knack and lastly, be bewitched by the stunning marriage of action sequence and beautiful music-'Romance For Guitars and Orchestra' ; 15 pivotal minutes from the  Michael Caine movie Deadfall. Can you imagine a heist movie having such class now?
I don't think!

End Transmission.
