Jack Good's attentions during these weeks in February were focused on the all important 7th March 1959 edition which would be the first show of 13 to be telerecorded for export to ABC in America. Although he had no big American names for this key broadcast (the earliest bookings of US stars he could manage to clinch were in April and May) Jack secured the cream of British talent, including Cliff Richard and Marty Wilde to ensure this  particular show was a memorable one.

HIT AND MISS: THE STORY OF THE JOHN BARRY SEVEN

HitAndMiss 1000

Thoroughly and painstakingly researched over a number of years, it features contributions from several ex-members of the band and from friends and relatives of John Barry.

Comprising of over 360 pages, it is packed with an array of rare photos of the band, and the singers they often supported, as well as some unique images of memorabilia and documentation from that era; some never previously published, many more seldom seen.

Even if you are not necessarily a devotee of The John Barry Seven per se, the book offers a fascinating historical insight into the British music scene of the period and, more importantly, provides an essential read for anybody remotely interested in discovering more about John Barry’s formative career.

The book’s cover price is £30, but anybody ordering direct from us will receive a 33% discount, reducing the cost to £19.99.
