15, 1, 11, 2, 14, 16, First 1:00 of 9, 5, 7, 12, 8, 6, 3, 4, 18, 17, Second 1:00 of 9, 13, 10.
If you can't split up track 9, put it at the second spot. Also, tracks 4 and 12 do not appear in the actual film, but the positions are where Barry intended these cues to go.
This score was the starting point in what was to be John Barry's long, distinguished and fruitful association with the James Bond pictures and he started his 'Bond' scoring career with both guns blazing. This score ranks in my 'Top 5' Barry 'Bond' scores of all time.
I personally hold this score in very high regard on account of it accentuating the sophistication, style and charisma that was needed (and still is) to make a 007 picture what it is - Class with attitude. The "From Russia With Love" score epitomizes the spy thriller genre in a musical sense and style like no other and it set the benchmark for others to follow - the benchmark set by John Barry.
The soundtrack is brimming with exemplary written music which is oozing with intrigue, suspense and thrills and which has a Eastern European flavour interwoven in a number of cues/tracks which is aptly befitting for a film like "From Russia With Love" and which also makes the score what it is.
For some reason I've always held the opinion that John Barry's 1960's James Bond scores had more zest, imagination and originality than any of his 1970's 'Bond' scores (albeit only 3 of them) but he came back to form quite significantly in the 1980's with treasures like (1985's) "A View to A Kill" and (1987's) "The Living Daylight's".
All in all the album is great, and from it I think that some of the 'Highlights' would have to be, "The Golden Horn", "007" , "Death of Grant", "Man Overboard - Smersh In Action", "James Bond with Bongo's" and last but most definitely not least "Stalking".
So what are you waiting for? Enjoy!!
