Stringbeat is the sound of John Barry in the early 60s .The sound that was to be found on all of the early Adam Faith records and made them original at the time.On this cd John Barry and his Orchestra (minus Adam Faith ) play a mix of popular and new (at the time) music .It adds up to being right up there with anything good being made in the early 60s,and anyone who enjoyed the early 60s or indeed anyone who enjoys John Barrys music will love this cd.

Having owned the original album since it was released I had been trying to put this onto my MP3 but did not have the right equipment therefore I was very pleased to see that the album had been re-released. The new album is excellent with the addition of extra titles. The only argument I have with it is the same one I had with the original. The wrong man's name is on the front. It should be Vic Flick.

The CD offered by Hallmark is a cheap vinyl transfer. Hiss, clicks etc have not been cleaned up. This is why it is being sold at this cheap price. There are no notes inside about the music and the printing of the inlay has been done cheaply. The Cd doesn't sound too bad on my top end system but there is distortion at times. You gets what you pays for but it is a shame that it has not got a proper release on CD. I am sure there are plenty of John Barry fans who would be willing to pay for a decent release from the master tapes. For the meanwhile, we have this.

Update: I have now listened to the vinyl version being offered by Doxy records. Research shows that this is a label from the Russian Federation. The vinyl is pristine and the sound tremendous. The cover is laminated and high quality. The inner sleeve is poly lined. The vinyl itself has no warps or non fill issues. It is exceptionally quiet. This mono version comes thumping out of my speakers with glorious early 60's beat! I'm a very happy man. Hats off to the Russians!

Been trying to get another copy of this for years after my vinyl copy was lost.
This LP was originally offered in 1961 and showcases John Barry's arranging skills over a variety of instrumentals.
All the tracks on this CD are absolutely of the time - early sixties/pre Mersey-beat - and are timeless.
I wish today's music was as tuneful and as memorable.

I ordered a CD in what was displayed as the original John Barry LP design sleeve (red, black and green circles etc) This is not what I got. It was the "Hallmark" copy with a completely different sleeve and very poor reproduction and the stereo is completely lost. Do not order from this suppliers.

I bought the LP of Stringbeat in the 1960,s but hadn't played it for years.

I didn't realise how good the music really is!
