Album Notes
It may seem silly and quaint today, but the early-'60s British film Beat Girl was one of the first movies to address subjects -- granted, in a sidelong and not terribly realistic manner -- like bohemian culture and teenage rebellion. Barry's score, performed by the John Barry Orchestra, is schizophrenic in its attempt to cover all aspects of beatnik life, resulting in an artifact that is as charmingly dated as the film itself. Smoky cellar jazz, honky-tonkin' sax instrumentals, light swing, dippy teen idol pop, snaky film noir, and menacing spy guitar -- they're all here, and all well done. Occasionally British pop singer Adam Faith (who also starred in the film) takes a lead vocal. The variations of the main theme (including a vocal rendition by Faith) are the most interesting of the lot, clearly foreshadowing both Barry's James Bond scores and the B-52s' "Rock Lobster" riff. ~ Richie Unterberger

Beat Girl is the story of an art student’s teenage rebellion. It is set amongst the beatniks music culture and vice of late 1950s Soho, which is reflected in John Barry’s superb score. This score shared many key elements of John Barry’s later scores, including Vic Flick's distinctive style of guitar playing. Featuring Adam Faith on three tracks (Made You, I Did What You Told Me and The Beat Girl Song) and Shirley Anne Field on It’s Legal.

This 35 track CD contains the original 18 tracks from the soundtrack LP. The remaining 17 tracks are a selection of the John Barry Seven and Orchestra singles from the 1958 to 1960. These include singles from Barry’s second film score Never Let Go, including Johnny Comes Marching Home (featuring Adam Faith). Themes from the TV series Juke Box Jury (Hit & Miss) and Drumbeat (Bee’s Knees) and all of John Barry’s official singles’ A and B sides from 1960
