John Barry - Follow Me (1972 (or 1971) Film) Soundtrack
The comedy starred Topol as a private detective hired by Michael Jayston. Jayston's character suspects that his wife, played by Mia Farrow, is cheating on him, and as Topol follows her around the city, they develop an odd sort of relationship. The theme is bittersweet and it perfectly captures the poignancy of the characters.
Hearing this score also reminds me of a time when you could watch these movies on TV (or in revival theaters). I don't think I've seen this movie in 20 years. Has anybody out there seen this movie on their local TV station (or even cable) lately? Let me know because I'd be curious to know if they're showing it anywhere. Maybe it's just here that they only show movies made in the last 5 years or so. Oh, well.
I got this a long time ago through p2p and it came with cover scans that don't match the track listing, but I've included them anyway. The actual track listing matches both the LP and bootleg CD versions, but I don't know which this is. All the music appears to be the same, but the scanned covers have a different track order. Here are those covers:
Follow Me (1972) (John Barry) - 01 - Main Title (Main Title Theme - Vocal)
Follow Me (1972) (John Barry) - 02 - The Meeting
Follow Me (1972) (John Barry) - 03 - The Man on a Scooter
Follow Me (1972) (John Barry) - 04 - Another Chance
Follow Me (1972) (John Barry) - 05 - This is How You Dance
Follow Me (1972) (John Barry) - 06 - Off Again
Follow Me (1972) (John Barry) - 07 - Follow Me
Follow Me (1972) (John Barry) - 08 - Streets and Parks Lanes
Follow Me (1972) (John Barry) - 09 - Some Party
Follow Me (1972) (John Barry) - 10 - Closer and Closer
Follow Me (1972) (John Barry) - 11 - The Tickle of Original Feeling
Follow Me (1972) (John Barry) - 12 - End Title (End Title Theme - Vocal)

Be Seeing You !
Thanks for the kind words. I've been a fan of your blog for a long time and so it's nice to see the comment. If there's any other John Barry (or any other composer, for that matter) that you're looking for, please let me know. I might have it.
Still trying to find a copy of "Seance on a Wet Afternoon" on DVD scored by Barry.
I just discovered your blog not too long ago and enjoy learning about Sweden. (Unfortunately, I missed out on the Les Baxter album though.) I'm so behind on my listening, I still haven't listened to your comp, 'Retro Shopping Volume 1 - Music to Buy Toasters By', but am really looking forward to it!
Always nice to hear! I didn't realize the score (or the movie) was that obscure, but I appreciate everybody letting me know.
When computers and surfing came up I was told, that there was an absolutely rare Japanese release on vinyle of the "Follow me" soundtrack, which at that time was impossible for me to obtain (as far as the price was concerned).
Every now and then I tried to bid on the bootlegs that were offered via eBay auctions, but failed.
Tonight I dropped in here accidently and downloaded the score, I can't tell you, how overwhelmingly happy I am right now.
It's one of my favorite Barry scores, comparable to his "The Knack" in style, texture and quality. It should also encourage the curious to seek out a copy of the obscure film (aka, The Public Eye), which, while not one of Carol Reed's best, remains a touching, engaging work. It really needs a DVD release.
Many thanks for a great share, mate.
