Ready When You Are, JB: The Very Best of John Barry's Early Soundtracks *Redux


Here's an excellent custom-expanded John Barry collection from soundtrack wizard, Nate Ashley.

A note from Nate:

"The skinny on Ready When You Are J.B.-

This album has been out of print for a while. The original being 12 tracks, which I revamped to 25. Any James Bond themes are instrumental versions from the original soundtracks, making it a purely instrumental record. There are some real classics on here that I searched hard for. The original album was released in 1970, with John Barry rerecording his 'best' soundtrack songs with a more stripped-down ensemble, which, in my opinion, are superior to some of the original orchestral versions. My dad had this on vinyl when I was a kid and passed it on to me, a true classic. Enjoy.

P.S.- I used [read: Nate made] new art for it, of course. :)"

*Thanks so much, Mr. Nate!
