The opening notes are as well known as any in motion picture history. The blaring brasses of John Barry's orchestra announce the arrival of everyone's favorite international secret agent, James Bond. The biting vocals of Shirley Bassey singing the theme song for the second James Bond feature remain just as iconic. GOLDFINGER,John Barry's second Bond score (but the first where the composer was allowed to write the opening theme song) clearly established a standard all following James Bond scores -- and films -- had to live up to. Barry's soundtrack features the requisite action music, mixed with inventive jazz riffs, that defined the James Bond sound and atmosphere. Capitol's CD release is a straight reissue of the excellent original LP. Although four cues accidentally left off the original British album remain excised here, these were later restored to EMI's "Best of James Bond 30th Anniversary" 2CD set (see Box Sets & Special Edition CDs)
