A good soundtrack for sure.
David Salako
Track-9: "Kung Fu Fight" features a good oriental motif and ends with a very catchy instrumental version of "The Man with the Golden Gun."

This is one of John Barry's finest James Bond scores and it gives one a chance to hear how great of a jazz composer he is.

Back in 1974 many fans wanted John Barry back after his one film hiatus from the Bond series. Barry returned with a score to THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN, Roger Moore's second outing as 007. Track-1: "Main Title: The Man With the Golden Gun" is very good. Lulu has an incredibly strong voice and the song has a certain rock element that was in contradiction to Binder's titles, yet it is very upbeat and sets the tone of the entire film. On this CD it sounds great and has improved with time. A beautiful girl on an isolated beach towels down Scaramanga as he emerges from the water in a surrealistically exotic locale. This sets up Track-2: "Scaramanga's Fun House" where Scaramanga lures gangster Rodney Hood into the funhouse in a duel to the death. This is a great track brimming with Barry's unique sound where the music first reflects the opulence of Scaramanga's domicile and then as they enter the fun house Barry creates a spiraling `stalking theme' mixed with source music from a Western saloon and Chicago Roaring 20s era gangland back alley. This `stalking theme' is central to the Scaramanga character and his deadly profession as the listener immediately associates the music with the character. Track-8: "Hip's Trip" is an excellent example where Barry is able to write suspense music using a repeating dynamic melody that builds in intensity. This is a technique he developed and has mastered ever since the safe-cracking scene in ON HER MAJESTY'S SECRET SERVICE. This technique is probably the most identifiable stylistic trademark in John Barry's music. Track-3: "Chew Me in Grisly Land" is rich in oriental flavor and includes an effective slow paced rendition of "The James Bond Theme.Read more ›

The Man With The Golden Gun is not one of the better films in the series. One however, cannot say the same about the music. While it is not considered to be the best work of John Barry, it is still good. The new CD has been remastered, but due to money restrains, no new bonus tracks have been added. The inner booklet has also been spiced up to include a few nice photos. The Man With The Golden Gun was performed by Lulu. It was one of the very few title tracks that didn't chart at all in the US or Britain. True that her voice was a little off and the lyrics are odd, but it is still a fine song. John Barry brought a far east flavor to the music that works very well in the film and on the CD. Scaramanga's Funhouse has the tension slow brass in it as does Return To Scaramanga's Funhouse, which is slightly longer and haunting. These tracks also include the honky-tonk interludes in them. Hip's Trip is a wonderful track that has a dark moody fell to it and works ver well. The Jazz Instrumental The Man With The Golden Gun is a Dixieland honky-tonk blast of crazy music and sounds in a fun rendition of the title song. This track is not featured in the film. My personal favorite and many others on the CD is In Search Of Scaramanga's Island. It is filled with a mysterious fell to it and a far eastern flavor. Very haunting and full of riveting tension. The CD ends with the end-title version of the title song in a much slower tempo. All in all, The Man With The Golden Gun is a good James Bond soundtrack filled with 12 wondeful tracks. A must for all Bond fans!

This Bond soundtrack has really grown on me over time. The movie itself is often ridiculed but I now think it has some strong points after viewing it recently on the blu ray format. The music is great all throughout the adventure. Lulu's belting out of sexy lyrics is a joy to listen to, so are all the variations of John Barry's creativity that pop up in various ways. A good soundtrack for sure.

This soundtrack grew and grew on me the more I heard it.
It (especially the instrumentals) were both soothing and powerful.
The instrumentals are beautifully balanced, and capture the essence of an Asian adventure story.
The calm interludes mixed with the powerful mission theme make for addictive listening.
The vocal sections are crisp, brassy and clear.

Honestly, I never liked Lulu's particular musical genre (what WAS that, exactly??) even back in 1974, and it hasn't improved any over the years. Barry knew what to do with his Bond scores, but he misfired a few times with his choices of singers for the main themes. People tend to overlook the misfires because the ones that really hit -- basically anything sung by Shirley Bassey, to start -- were *such* effective theme songs for their respective films that you kind of want to forget the duds. This one wasn't quite as awful as the truly wretched "All Time High" from Octopussy (OUCH), but it came darn close. Yeeeeesh! If only one could listen to Barry's score without Lulu ... Oh wait, -- you *can.* Do that. You won't be sorry.

Although my son wasn't born when the first Bond movie came out and I was just 11 he feel in love with Mr. Bond and all of his moives when I started watching them on TV with him. He loves the music, too.
