All The Bond Themes From 'Dr. No' through 'Die Another Day' from the Original Soundtracks
on June 27, 2016
Well, these are from the original soundtrack recordings for each of these movies, so quality is variable, and the collection shows, in rather bold relief, that nobody could touch either John Barry for writing "Bond Music" or Shirley Bassey for performing it! After the Barry numbers, the quality of the music declines sharply, with the only really first-rate non-Barry Bond theme being Bill Conti's "For Your Eyes Only". Pay close attention to Shirley Bassey singing "Moonraker". A decidedly 2nd rate Bond film with a top-class and gorgeous theme. If you like all the Bond themes (or at least most of them), this is probably the collection for you.
