Publication of Geoff Leonard, Pete Walter and Gareth Bramley's excellent book John Barry - The Man With The Midas Touch. The book is published to coincide with John Barry’s 75th birthday.

Whether or not you purchased John Barry - A Life in Music ten years ago, you can look forward to a book that has been thoroughly re-written and completely updated. The authors have spent a lot of time on the picture content and this too has been extensively updated and includes a good selection of rare photos, both colour and black and white.

There are approximately 300 pages including two photo sections of 16 pages each with colour and black/white photos. In addition to this, a photo introduces each of the thirty chapters, and, of course, the discography has been updated to include everything that’s happened since 1998. It’s a book that does full justice to a glittering career.

They want to emphasise that this project is basically a self-publication in that they have commissioned a publisher to act on their behalf. All the work has been done by a team of dedicated John Barry fans, much of it voluntarily.

The book is priced at 14.99 GBP (23.75 USD).
