John Barry's The Knack…And How To Get It
1-Apr-2011 - Quartet Records has released a long-awaited new edition of a master classic by John Barry - one of his most influential works from the sixties. The Knack…And How To Get It - winner of the Palme d'Or at Cannes in 1965 - is an unforgettable film, a symbol of a generation, and a true witness of its time. Smart and sexy, the film was the first collaboration between John Barry and Richard Lester. Barry's music is vibrant, funny, powerfully melodic, and well-remembered as an icon of the Swinging London movement. The Knack was previously released on CD by Ryko in 1998 but that version has been out-of-print for many years. This edition is based on a new transfer from the original stereo tapes housed in the M-G-M vaults, resulting in sound quality that is much improved. The deluxe booklet includes 24 pages with lots of stills and new liner notes by Geoff Leonard and Pete Walker.
