Barry's own favorite of his Bond scores is, of course brilliant.
James Luckard
I have all the soundtracks of the bond movies and Barry's works are the ones I enjoy repeating over and over.
Ruby Relic
The tracks are well produced and I easily recall them with the appropriate scenes from the celluloid classic.

This CD release of "Goldfinger," the most famous of all James Bond scores and without a doubt one of the most influential soundtracks ever produced, expands the album for the first time for U.S. buyers to the original length of the U.K. album. The U.K. album had four extra tracks ("Pussy Galore's Flying Circus," "Golden Girl," "Laser Beam," and "Death of Tilley") that were mysteriously cut from the original Stateside release. These four tracks later appeared on a compilation CD, but this is the first time all the tracks have been released on one CD for American consumption. The CD is also wonderfully re-mastered, far superior to the old CD release that was muffled and even had misaligned track markers! (The sound difference is most notable on the brassy, hard swingin' instrumental cover of the theme song, which on the original CD sounded scratchy, as if it were lifted directly from an old vinyl record!) This album, however, is missing a track that would have been a nice extra: Anthony Newley's original demo recording of the theme song, smooth and low-key, which makes for an interesting contrast to Shirley Bassey's hard jazz-pop rendition heard in the film.
What is there to say about this music that hasn't been said a million times in books, documentaries, reviews, and Internet forums? It's the quintessential `spy jazz' album, and it changed action film music forever. John Barry had worked (mostly un-credited) on "Dr. No," did the full score for the remarkable "From Russia, With Love," but here he absolutely explodes with an original vibrant style for the series and charted the way for every score to follow. Barry took his experience as a jazz/rock trumpeter and bandleader (he headed the popular British group "The John Barry Seven") and expanded it into a tremendous orchestral juggernaut.

Sadly, of all the "Remastered" and extended James Bond soundtracks produced by Capital/EMI/MGM to celebrate 007's 40th Anniversary, "Goldfinger" is the biggest disappointment. This is not a bad recording, far from it, but one hoped for a bit more. John Barry's score for "Goldfinger" is clearly one of the two best of the entire series and it has what is easily the best vocal title. The problem here is that even with an additional four "bonus" tracks, music that has been available for quite a while on LP and CD, this recording represents only part of the full score. In comparison with the "Remastered" version of Barry's "On Her Majesty's Secret Service," which was wonderful, "Goldfinger" comes up a bit short. No one is at fault really. The fact is that the rest of the score was not saved. That is the bad news. The good news is that the recording is excellent, the packaging is first rate, and again the price deserves a big hand. "Goldfinger" was the first Bond project that Barry had all to himself (with the exception of the lyrics)and it remains the standard by which all other Bond scores have been measured, and only "OHMSS" is actually in the same class. A full score would have been solid gold. This version does come very close, however, and is a must.

Barry's own favorite of his Bond scores is, of course brilliant. Sadly, it seems there were no masters left to lengthen this album. However, it still includes the four bonus British tracks, and it's wonderful to listen to no matter how much there is.
Anyway, yet again, here is my film order track listing, for those nuts like me.

The Goldfinger score is iconic, the work of a young man at the peak of his creative powers. The title song opens with a bang, settles into a groove and crescendos again into a thunderous climax that builds with a subtle yet ingenious use of the main Bond theme. Just when the viewer or listener is knocked into the ropes, Into Miami roars on with an irresistible big time swing. This stuff is grandiose, a splashy intro for a larger than life movie.

The Goldfinger theme is used throughout, and translates well to softer strings as Bond negotiates the Swiss Alps, to the surf-guitar heavy instrumental, and to the lush suite of the end credits. The action pieces work really well with the existing cues as well, particularly the Dawn Raid on Fort Knox and Oddjob's Pressing Engagement, which has serious swing appeal.

The best two cuts are designed particularly with mood setting in mind- Golden Girl is used when Bond discovers Jill dead, covered in gold paint. I swear to God, the music actually shimmers like the light coming off her body! The other cut is the Laser, which is Barrys personal all time favorite. Talk about building tension. Get this soundtrack, not only is it top-notch Bond, but the essence of sixties hip.

I never owned the original soundtrack on vinyl, so I'll take the word of the other reviewers who rave about the enhanced quality and production values on this CD. The tracks are well produced and I easily recall them with the appropriate scenes from the celluloid classic. That's the acid test with any movie music. And Bond obviously had no need for earmuffs with these sounds.
