¥ The Complete Dramatic Score from the 1965 film set in Africa starring ROBERT MITCHUM, CARROLL BAKER and IAN BANNEN.
The latter-day Mister (Joe) Moses is a snake-oil pitchman who is chased out of an African village and is found, literally, in the bull-rushes by Julie Anderson, daughter of missionary Reverand Anderson who has learned that he is a diamond smuggler and threatens to expose him to her fiancŽ Robert; the district commissioner if he doesnÕt help lead an African native tribe to their new homeland. With the aid of a pitchmanÕs accessories, including an ability to set fire to a bush, a friendly elephant and his carnival wagon, the schemer is forced to lead his newly found friends out of their settlement which is condemned to be flooded by a new dam

For over forty years, John Barry lent his distinctive musical voice and keen dramatic sensibility to the art of scoring motion pictures. This early example of his work, although modest in scope, bears witness to his giant talent. With cannily crafted materials and carefully chosen colours, he brings to Mister Moses Ð a film largely forgotten today Ð an unforgettable musical landscape with Òform and shapeÓ that lingers far beyond the film that inspired it.
Recording Produced by James Fitzpatrick for Prometheus Records
