Editorial Reviews

2008 two CD release. Calling all secret agents, this glorious 'pop secret' double CD is guaranteed licensed to thrill and will certainly tickle your Tchaikovsky! The world famous and memorable film themes are played here with class and finesse by the super cool Roland Shaw & His Orchestra in their inimitable swinging '60s style. All tracks are the original 1960s Decca recordings. In addition to the James Bond tracks, we have included a bonus disc that features four of your favorites from Casino Royale and also a fine selection of some classic '60s spy thriller/secret agent themes, also by the Roland Shaw Orchestra. Poker.

5.0 out of 5 stars This CD set is great! September 15, 2009
Format:Audio CD
If you are one of the people who acquired the old Phase 4 stereo album "The Return of James Bond in Diamonds are Forever - and other Secret Agent Themes" you will love this CD set as it contains every track on that double album set. I vividly remember the bikini clad girls of the original album (reproduced in miniature on the CD jacket (the real downside of CD's in general...excellent album art is wasted on them!)) I have been looking for these tracks on CD, and now they are available. Good thing too, because I wore out the albums many years ago :-) This CD set is a real gem!

1.0 out of 5 stars Themes like old times, but not new recording January 29, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this as an LP nearly forty years ago. My brother and I looked forward, for years, for this to release on CD.

What a huge disappointment. While the music might still be good, the engineering here is very, very bad. The distortion of the instruments, especially louder, high sounds like horns are almost unbearable. The louder passages, using the full orchestra are distorted beyond anything I can remember hearing. We are not nit pickers, it was so distorted we could not listen to it.

The volume is flat, there is no dynamic range, the ability for music on CD to play louder and softer passages. Records had to have a very limited dynamic range and, for this reason, we feel that the original masters may not have been used. It is if they recorded this, it seems, from an old record.

5.0 out of 5 stars but this is a great alternative. July 1, 2014
By MetalMX
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Bought because I had one of the albums in which this one only uses a partial bit due to combination of several albums by Mr. Shaw. Would have rather had the original, but this is a great alternative.

5.0 out of 5 stars Roland Shaw Belts The Big Ones! November 5, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love what Roland Shaw does with these songs. His "I Spy" is better than the original.
Great '60's sound, and any secret agent fan should not be without at least 1 Shaw offering.
