Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The release of re-mastered editions of the James Bond scores offered up some great albums that expanded the original soundtracks with extra cues ("Thunderball" and "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" are particularly superb). However, "Moonraker," one of the best scores of the series and one of the most lyrical and unusual (especially when you consider what a silly slapstick film it accompanies) arrived on CD in a bare-bones 30-minute edition that replicates the original LP version with no extra tracks.
This is an unfortunate occurrence, but the people loudly complaining and blaming EMI need to understand that the album producers had no choice. They wanted an expanded album (who wouldn't? more people would buy it), but there was a major stumbling block because of the way the "Moonraker" recording sessions were originally produced. "Moonraker" was a French-British co-production for tax reasons, and most of the film was shot in France. The recording sessions were also done in France, and the original masters reside in vaults in Paris. The American producers of this album were unable to obtain access to these master tapes to make a longer version, and the work to get them would have been prohibitively expensive -- which would mean no album at all.
I too am disappointed we don't have a longer "Moonraker" album; however, the re-mastered sound and the general brilliance of the music makes it impossible for me to give this album anything less than five stars. I've loved this album for years, and still do. I think it shows John Barry at his best, and it's the most experimental score for a Bond film.

While a major success at the box office, 1979's MOONRAKER was never a major success with Bond fans overall thanks to its excessive elements of camp, light-heartedness, and space faring science fiction. While these elements may have ultimately hurt the film itself, they also allowed composer John Barry to create a sweeping musical score that has quickly become one of my favorites among his many Bond related compositions.
Barry has always created some of my favorite pieces of music when done in conjunction with outer space, as evidenced in YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE with the track entitled 'Capsule in Space' and DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER with 'Blofeld's Laser', not to mention films outside of the Bond franchise such as Disney's THE BLACK HOLE (which was released the same year as this film, by the way). Here, Barry lets loose with two beautiful tracks entitled 'Flight Into Space' and 'Space Laser Battle', both of which evoke a complete sense of awe and wonder.
Two more tracks worth mentioning are the exciting 'Cable Car And Snake Fight', which actually has a running theme present that is very similar to one found in THE BLACK HOLE score, and the alluringly seductive 'Bond Lured To the Pyramid' which incorporates the use of an actual chorus for an "otherworldly effect" to say the least.
On an interesting note, this score marks the last time that the infamous '007 Theme', originally created by Barry for FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE and subsequently appearing many times in future film entries, appears in a Bond film. Also, this is the last time that the talented Shirley Bassey will contribute her lovely vocal talents to the theme song of a Bond film. Previously, she had teamed with John Barry for the title song of GOLDFINGER, one of two versions of 'Mr.

Format: Audio CD
Yes indeed. This soundtrack is much, much too short. After all, the CD only contains around 30 minutes of music, and that really is a shame, as many reviewers righly pointed out.
The music itself is excellent, Barry really shows his genius here (but then, speaking of his Bond music, doesn't he always?). And a simple fact that an entire pretitle sequence, which is truly excellent - speaking of music and also of film itself - is missing, vexes me even more. A legend has it that the music was being recorded in France and the original tapes eventually got lost. I wonder how much effort was put into finding that material, but sadly this is now a rather unimportant issue...
But all the criticism aside, we do get some gems here, meaning especially Space Lazer Battle, Cable Car And Snake Fight and Flight Into Space, which is a real masterpiece and gets very heavenly and ethereal, as Barry adds a wordless choir, perfectly evoking Drax's Noah Ark operation and empty loneliness of space. It always reminds me of Holst's Neptune, The Mystic from The Planets suite. A nice rendition of "007" tune can also be heard in Bond Arrives In Rio And Boat Chase.
One more thing. Apart from many (ar should I say all) other people, I actually really like the concluding track - the disco-pop version of Moonraker - Main Title. It sounds quite cool to me, but then, I'm also a big fan of Conti's soundtrack for For Your Eyes Only, and that also speaks for itself. :)
Sadly, this CD lacks a lot of great music from film, otherwise it is a perfect soundtrack and worth having.
