John Barry is one of the best represented film composers on CD, but this four-disc collection outdoes everything that's come before with tracks from more than 50 film and TV projects. Of course there are the biggest names you'd expect. James Bond is acknowledged by 10 of the infamous themes and a couple of suites. There's the Western romance of Dances with Wolves, the sultriness of Body Heat, the jazzy highs at The Cotton Club and the encapsulation of the 1960s by The Ipcress File. But this collection's strength is in not just concentrating on well-known classics such as Born Free or The Lion in Winter. There's also smaller fare that rarely gets heard, such as The Dove, High Road to China, The Deep and also his "Romance for Guitar and Orchestra" from Deadfall. After four hours of listening to Barry's laid-back romantic style, you'll be in no uncertainty that all those other collections were justified. It's just a shame this didn't come first. --Paul Tonks
