Following on from the welcome release of John Barry's "Boom!" last month (HRKCD 8248), we are pleased to announce another first on CD, his score for "The Wrong Box". This sumptuous and lush music was composed for the superb, but highly underrated Bryan Forbes-directed farce based on R. L. Stevenson's best-selling book. It had an enormous cast of who's who in the British canon of actors with many playing (in some cases) uncredited cameos.
Film music writer, Darren Allison has done a first class job on providing highly comprehensive and thoroughly informative essays bon all aspects relating to this film. Our suitably fitting 20 page booklet also features rare stills from the film. Definitely not to be missed!
