John Barry / The Tamarind Seed (CD soundtrack)
John Barry‘s score to this 1974 romance/drama starring Julie Andrews and Omar Sharif was never officially released as a soundtrack and tapes were thought lost. However, Silva Screen Records have managed to create the OST that never was with this new release that features “all the major cues used in the film” together with Wilma Reading’s commercially released single ‘Play It Again’. This also includes two different versions of ‘The End’ as performed by Danny Street, plus different versions of both main and end title themes. CD-only, it seems.
