Description

John Barry - The Ipcress File

“If you want to see an example of what music does for a movie, go and see The Ipcress File. Then you'll understand what John Barry's all about.”
- Michael Caine

CD re-issue of one of John Barry's most memorable film scores from the 1960's composed for the seedy and realistic spy thriller starring Michael Caine as Len Deighton's great anti-hero, Harry Palmer.

For his inspiration for the music John Barry looked to one of his favourite films The Third Man and its famous solo Zither score by Anton Karas.

With The Ipcress File he wanted to achieve an equally distinctive, repetitive yet haunting sound. In this his chose the Hungarian Cimbalom as his lead instrument for his Man Alone Theme backed by an orchestra in a series of swing, jazz and blues variations.

****- Hotdog

- Mojo
