Overview

EMI's superlative two-CD BEST OF JAMES BOND celebrates the music that kept pace with the world's most famous secret agent. The first disc contains all of the 007 theme songs, from the original "James Bond" theme through Gladys Knight's power ballad from LICENCE TO KILL. Other classic theme performances include Shirley Bassey's "Goldfinger", Paul McCartney and Wings' thundering "Live and Let Die," and Carly Simon's "Nobody Does It Better" along the way. Disc two spotlights rare, previously unreleased theme demos -- including Dionne Warwick's alternate THUNDERBALL theme, "Mr.Kiss Kiss Bang Bang," and composer Anthony Newley singing a downright spooky version of GOLDFINGER -- plus radio spots and a generous helping of never-before-released score cues from GOLDFINGER and THUNDERBALL. Informative and insightful booklet notes by Danny Biederman compliment an all around wonderful collection.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
The Best of James Bond: 30th Anniversary is a limited-edition double-disc set that collects the hit versions of all the James Bond themes, as well as adding an extra disc of unreleased material, featuring commericals and incidental music composed by John Barry. Bond collectors will delight with the rarities, but many listerners will settle for the single-disc version, which just contains the theme songs, including "Goldfinger," "Diamonds Are Forever," "Live and Let Die," "A View to a Kill," and "For Your Eyes Only."
