His reputation was further gilded by his soundtracks for a dozen James Bond films between 1962 and 1987. Barry's career reflects the evolution of post-war British music from big band to rock and roll and the birth of pop.

Written with Barry's cooperation and including insights from close friends, Eddi Fiegel's "John Barry: A Sixties Theme" celebrates a life of stunning creativity , recreates an unforgettable era in British culture, and reveals how John Barry came to write his music and why.
