Out of Africa and into my living room.
By: AdamR
Date: 6 Mar 2010
John Barry has created many masterful and unforgettable soundtracks over the years including what many consider his magnum opus - Dances With Wolves. However, to seek the musical style which made Dances such a popular score among film buffs, you need to look back to Barry's 1980s lush thematic writing.

This is where you find Out of Africa, a score which builds on this lush romantic style of Barry and earned him an Oscar in the process. The main title track "I Had a Farm" introduces the listener to the main theme of the album, dominated by strings and backed up by low brass. This style is common in other Barry works 'Somewhere in Time', 'Raise the Titanic', and 'Dances with Wolves' and provided listeners with a unique "Barry sound". Out of Africa is built around this main theme and string-dominated score.

The album on Streaming Soundtracks is the 1997 re-recording by the Royal Scottish Orchestra featuring more background music than the original soundtrack release in 1990. Either album will provide you the opportunity to hear Barry when his composing recognition was at its prime in the late 80s.
