AllMusic Review by

Barry's soundtrack to the low-budget 1965 drama Four in the Morning was crafted with a nine-piece orchestra, playing very sparsely arranged themes. These melancholy, subdued themes are attractively downbeat and well-suited toward the film's subject matter, projecting a sense of emptiness and regret. The LP grows tiresome, however, consisting as it does principally of variations on the main theme. It's been reissued by RPM on a single-disc CD that also includes Barry's soundtrack to the mid-'60s film Zulu.
