For the first time ever, the soundtrack for Live And Let Die has been remastered and now includes 8 brand new tracks available for the first time. Live And Let Die boasts one of the best title songs in the entire series. Paul McCartney and The Wings perform the slam-bang exciting title song with thrilling beats and a magnificent flow! The song charted at #2 in the US making it one of the best Bond songs ever. George Martin composes the score this time around with a very laid back lounge type style, which actually works for the film. He made his own version of the James Bond Theme (Track 14), which can also be heard throughout several other tracks. Adventerous music that includes the very high brass includes Snakes Alive, Baron Samedi's Dance Of Death, Sacrifice and Boat Chase. Also included in the Live And Let Die title song version by B.J. Arnau and alternate versions of San Monique. The famous Gunbarrel is also included as a bonus track on the CD. With 22 tracks and 56 minutes of music, a thrilling title song and a smack-down score, Live And Let Die is a classic soundtrack for all 007 fans!

The remastered release of LIVE AND LET DIE is much improved. The previous issue was no different than the track line up on the original 1973 vinyl record -- or eight track tape, depending on your antiquated stereo. Not only does this release include additional superb tracks, some of the original cuts have also been lengthened and more closely correspond the the film soundtrack. George Martin, the Beatles producer, took the helm from John Barry in scoring the eighth James Bond film soundtrack. Though no one has yet equaled Barry's compositions for Bond films, which we have not heard since 1987's THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS, Martin's soundtrack was perfect for launching Roger Moore's first outing as Bond. Let us not forget Paul McCartney's brilliant theme of the same name.

The musical chemistry between McCartney and Martin is obvious as the title theme music is blended throughout the soundtrack. As a matter of trivia the movie producers originally planned to use McCartney's title theme with a female vocalist before the former Beatle showed his mettle as a negotiator. In the end, Paul McCartney and Wings performed the title track. LIVE AND LET DIE also proved to be a hit Apple/Capitol single as well.

There are a couple things missing from the CD. When some of the James Bond soundtracks were re-released a couple years ago they included selected soundbytes and an analog movie trailer. Apparently the remastered LIVE AND LET DIE soundtrack did not rate these extra features.

Oh well, Live and Let Die. In the meantime, live and go buy.

George Martin, being the first composer after John Barry to score a Bond film, did a fabulous job for "Live and Let Die". Highlight tracks includes Bond Meets Solitaire, Snakes Alive, and Solitaire Gets Her Cards.
Unfortunately, many of the cues for the action sequences, which uses the main theme, was left out, as was the gorgeous instrumental (which rivals John Barry's skill in composing romantic themes) used when Bond seduced Solitaire with a deck full of Lovers card. It is a shame. WIth these in, Live and Let Die would merit a four star rating instead of the three I gave.

Live And Let Die (1973), was the start of a new era in the James Bond universe, as Roger Moore replaced Sean Connery as Agent 007. Moore brought a new slant to the character, and there was a change in the music department as well. Mostly known up to this point, for his work as a producer for The Beatles iconic albums of the late 60's, George Martin became the first after John Barry, to score a Bond soundtrack as the sole composer.

Martin's connection to The Fab Four paid big dividends, as Paul McCartney penned the title song Live and Let Die, and performed it with his group Wings. The song was a mainstream of rock number, unlike the title song from any previous Bond soundtrack, and was a massive hit in both Britain and America. Live And Let Die was nominated for an Academy Award for best original song, but lost to Marvin Hamlich's, The Way We Were, which was a Number 1 hit for Barbara Streisand. In 1976, Hamlish would become the third composer to score a Bond film solo, in The Spy Who Loved Me.

George Martin's music for James Bond was a departure from Barry's more traditional orchestral sound. Martin went in more of a funk and rock direction, getting in step with the tone of the film, which featured locations in New York, Louisiana, and Jamaica. Martin does a fine job of coming up with an original approach, and then blending in the James Bond Theme (by Monty Norman), Barry's traditional Bond elements, and McCartney's Live And Let Die melody, into some of his more modern rock influenced compositions.

When originally released on vinyl record in 1973, the soundtrack was a little over 34 minutes in length. The remastered 2003 expanded version, is 56 minutes long, so there was obviously more music that could have been included on the LP.

George Martin's inspiration for composing a score for LIVE AND LET DIE seems to have been SHAFT rather than earlier James Bond films. There is nothing wrong with this approach. However all the musical cues for James Bond, the hero of the piece, should never stray too far from his musical roots and that sound should remain consistent. This is similar to the mistake Michael Kamen made with his score for LICENCE TO KILL.

If you examine John Barry's score for THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN it is has an oriental quality to it reflecting Macao, Hong Kong and the Thailand settings. However, when he employs references to "The James Bond Theme" the score reverts back to a more consistent musical orchestration, only very subtly suggesting the locale and shifts the focus to James Bond the secret agent.

However, as an album LIVE AND LET DIE is very good. George Martin seems to have wisely chosen tracks that combined strains of James Bond and Solitaire's themes with a sustained beat resulting in a cohesive sound throughout. It is not John Barry at all, but instead is a refreshing look at James Bond as he dives headfirst into this unique world at a time and place of the early 70s. The extra tracks are outstanding making this one of the best James Bond soundtracks.
