Beat Girl OST - John Barry

Beat Girl OST
With a teen cast starring Adam Faith, Gillian Hills (the English Brigitte Bardot) Peter McEnery, Shirley Anne Field and a young Oliver Reed, playing opposite the Corbusieresque architect David Farrar and seedy strip club owner Chrisopher Lee, Beat Girl is a vintage British exploitation movie.

The film owes much of its effectiveness to John Barry's impressive first film score - actually the first British original film soundtrack lp - with Vic Flick's savage twangy guitar presaging the Bond theme that was less than two years away.

Beat Girl explores prostitution, juvenile delinquency, beatniks, jazz music, French women and coffee bars. It has no plot but a lot of energy and invention with the young Adam Faith the personification of cool sixteen year- old Gillian Hills perfect in the title role.

Our 36 track bumper edition comprises the original film soundtrack, seven further John Barry cuts including four of his 1960 hits; Hit and Miss , Beat for Beatniks , Walk Don't Run and Black Stockings , five early Adam Faith hits including the number one s What Do You Want and Poor Me and six deliciously playful Gillian Hills "ye-ye girl" numbers recorded with Henri Salvador and Paul Mauriat.

The Deep O/S/T: Expanded Edition
•    JOHN BARRY and DONNA SUMMER, having climbed to the pinnacle of their respective musical fields, need little introduction to avid music fans. Barry, born to the owner of a small movie theatre chain owner seemed destined to be involved in film making and has become the 20th Century's greatest soundtrack composer, winning no less than 5 Academy Awards and remarkably none of them for his best known and most iconic work for the majority of the James Bond films. Summer, of course, is regarded by many as the Queen of Disco after her ground-breaking and Grammy Award winning collaborations with producer Giorgio Moroder and her subsequent chameleon-esque pop career.

•    Barry was at the height of his powers when he collaborated with an up and coming Summer (she had secured 2 Gold discs by this point) on this soundtrack to Peter Yates movie "The Deep” in 1977, which starred Jacqueline Bissett, Robert Shaw and Nick Nolte among others.

•    Released on Summer’s Casablanca label "The Deep” soundtrack opens with Barry's ‘Return To The Sea – 2033 A.D.,’ a 24 minute ballet based on the theme to The Deep which showcases Barry's subtle and intriguing soundtrack style and the only track on the first side of the original LP. Side two has three different versions of the ‘Theme From The Deep’ which the pair wrote together. The first of which ‘Theme From The Deep (Down, Deep Inside)’ (UK #5) shows Summer affecting her ‘Love To Love You’  orgasmic vocal style to great effect, and the version that closes the album "... (A Love Song),” with its slower tempo, gives her vocal an even more beguiling tone.  

•    The LP also features Beckett’s "Disco Calypso,” a very pleasant contemporary dance track that provides exactly what its title suggests. Unfortunately both the film and the soundtrack have been relatively overlooked since their release but there is no question that this recording stands up to Barry's best work, and with Summer’s involvement  together they have created a unique moment  in both soundtrack and dance music history.

•    Hot Shot Records/BBR are proud to release the soundtrack to THE DEEP, this fully re-mastered and re-packaged edition comes with superb liner notes and bonus content and is a must for all Soundtrack, Disco and Pop fans out there!
