BARRY RYAN | THE ALBUMS 1969-1979, 5CD BOX SET Out In May!

  • The first ever career covering round up of one of the UK’s most under-rated vocalists.
  • 95-track 5CD clamshell box set containing Barry’s five studio albums for Polydor Records, a disc of non LP recordings released by Polydor plus a discs of late 70s tracks for other labels including nine previously unreleased cuts.
  • Well over half the featured tracks are appearing here on CD for the first time.

‘Eloise’ hit No.1 across the globe, including the Top spot in the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Belgium, France, Italy, Holland, Norway, Spain and Germany plus the Top 5 in most other record buying territories.

Germany remained a major market for Barry and he chalked up hits with the likes of ‘Love Is Love’ (No.4), ‘The Hunt’ (No.22), ‘Colour Of My Love’ (No.23), ‘Magical Spiel’ (No.22), ‘Kitsch’ (No.10) and ‘Sanctus, Sanctus Hallelujah’ (No.42), all of which are featured in this collection.

Released with the full support of his Estate, the release has been overseen by St. Etienne’s Bob Stanley, a long time fan, who has provided in-depth liner notes.
