Overview

Best of Bond...James Bond: 40th Anniversary Edition [Bonus Track]

Ushering in the longest running series in film history were three words unforgettably uttered by Sean Connery: "Bond. James Bond." One of the most familiar musical passages of our time and no less memorable is John Barry's "James Bond Theme," performed by the Monty Norman Orchestra. The songs accompanying the opening credits for each film have always been an eagerly anticipated and intrinsic part of the Bond phenomenon. Small wonder that top pop artists from Paul McCartney to Tom Jones to Nancy Sinatra were eager to do a Bond song. Among the 19 knockout original performances included in this very fun collection are Shirley Bassey's clarion sounding of "Goldfinger," Duran Duran's "A View to a Kill," Carly Simon's droll "Nobody Does It Better," and Matt Monro's crooning "From Russia With Love." Bassey turns up twice more with "Diamonds Are Forever" and "Moonraker," and Louis Armstrong reassuringly reports "We Have All The Time in the World." Liner notes that include recording info and photos add to a very tasty collection worthy of Mr. Bond.

Nothing like James Bond in your cd player to make your car drive faster! I had these tracks on a cassette 25 years ago and was tickled to find them again, sounding better than ever.

I HAVE ALWAYS LOVED THE JAMES BOND MOVIES SINCE I WAS NINE. MY TWO FAVORITE 007 MOVIES ARE GOLDENEYE AND GOLFINGER. SEAN CONNERY WAS THE FIRST JAMES BOND. SO THAT MAKES HIM THE BEST. BUT OTHERS HAVE DIFFERENT TASTES. THE THEME SONGS ARE WEIRED, BUT THAT'S WHAT MAKES THEM COOL!
