John Barry’s soundtrack to the Michael Caine-starring colonial war classic Zulu is one of the ones that made the composer’s name, with a very memorable main theme that storms out of the speakers. This new Fantastic Voyage reissue has been remastered from the original stereo tapes and is pressed to weighty 180g vinyl.

- Zulu by John Barry
8/10 Jack 28th July 2017
John Barry has a very distinctive sound and his scores do sort of all "sound the same," as some critics note. But Zulu is an early score and has a marvellous freshness and power that places it at the very top of Barry's work. This is not background music (although I recently watched the movie and the music is seamlessly interwoven with the action). I highly recommend this album. Many of the other selections are worthwhile (I found his unused "Cotton Club" suite to be a pleasure), but "Zulu" is the highlight of this set.
