Product description

From the Inside Flap

Laurie Johnson: Composer and Producer. His music is known worldwide: The Avengers, The Professionals, This Is Your Life, Dr Strangelove, concert works, stage musicals and much else. What is not well known is his role as a producer and the fact that he is also co-owner of Gainsborough Pictures and the first independent British television production company, which made The New Avengers and The Professionals, in addition to composing the music for them. He tells of the background to those award-winning series, the casting of which made household names of their stars.

Laurie Johnson has worked with some of the greatest talents in the entertainment industry – Stanley Kubrick, Sir Peter Ustinov, Lord Bernard Miles and Lord Lew Grade; writers Lionel Bart, Herbert Kretzmer, Peter Cook and Dame Barbara Cartland; actors Sir Harry Seacombe, Peter Sellers, Joanna Lumley, Dame Diana Rigg, Sir Spike Milligan, Beryl Reid, Kenneth Williams and James Coburn; also cinematic special-effects innovator, Ray Harryhausen.

He also writes of his legendary composer friends, Bernard Herrmann and Miklós Rósza, along with musicians, Ted Heath, Jack Parnell and Benny Green. Laurie Johnson founded the London Big Band, which contains most of the greatest jazz and orchestral musicians in Britain.

Noises In The Head is the story of a unique talent and a unique life, told with humour and humility.
