HE'S OKAY FOR SOUND - AND SIGHT...
I discovered this article back around 1977, when I took it upon myself to paint the skirting boards in my bedroom. First I had to lift my carpet, as well as, if I rightly recall, the one that had already adorned the floor when I first moved into the house. Beneath the under-carpet was linoleum, and when I lifted that, various newspaper sheets covered the floorboards. Among them was the issue of the Daily Mirror that contained this article, so as I was by then a confirmed John Barry fan, I cut it out and attached it to my bedroom wall. I also remember an article about SHIRLEY BASSEY, but whether that was in the same newspaper or another one has now faded from my memory. I kept it for a while, but eventually it was consigned to history.
First of all I scanned the original, then digitally removed the marks of the tape that had originally affixed it to my wall. I tidied up various parts of it, then printed it out on card, the better to have a copy that's a little more robust than its paper predecessor. I've included a couple of photos of them on the wall so that you can compare them in context (see footnote on second pic). I've also included scans of the article 'before and after' (the 'after' is at the top of the post) so that you can all admire my handiwork and tell me what a good job I've done. (Oh, go on, don't be spoilsports.)
Who was it said "The more things change, the more they remain the same" ? In this instance he was right.
