As repeated on various U-Tube postings, the original, Barry composed and conducted score was mastered onto, possibly, the earliest CD formats for playing in cinemas during intermission breaks etc. This score was taken by a Japanese company and pressed into 1000 copies before Barry got wind and put the block on it. He was, at the time, and in several interviews since, "not happy with the score" and the films subsequent 'bombming' at the box office didn't help. The 1000 discs, and subsequent bootleg copies, are all that is out there, but they do give their owners the true film score as heard on the soundtrack. The subtle differences between this and the re-recorded Nic Raine version will always create the situation where purists will want the original above all else.
