Alinact, on the sleeve of Up To Now, it's credited solely to Barry.   I can ask him about this, if you're really not sure, but there's no reason to doubt the CD re-release sleeve: you can bet there'd be legal trouble from a bigtime music-biz lawyer if he was claiming credit for the work of an established pop group.

There was doubt about his authorship of this song in another thread awhile back, and I mentioned to Barry that I'd posted a message correcting this and confirming that he wrote it. He didn't contradict me or demur, so I'm assuming from his own reaction and the credit on the Up To Now sleeve that he did indeed write it. Also (to my ear anyway) it really does sound like him.
