In celebration of 007’s 50th anniversary on the big screen and in conjunction with EON Productions and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, Capitol/EMI has released ‘Best Of Bond… James Bond’ – a new commemorative collection of the legendary films’ digitally re-mastered music.
M&C is getting in on the celebration by giving away a copy of the “50 Years – 50 Tracks” Two Disc edition and a PS3 edition of 007 LEGENDS.
The 23-track single-disc edition and deluxe edition of ‘Best Of Bond… James Bond’ both feature the themes from all 22 Bond films released since 1962, including The John Barry Orchestra’s seminal “James Bond Theme” from Dr. No, with striking cover art depicting Bond’s “Golden Girl” and the official 50th anniversary logo.
The John Barry Orchestra’s orchestral main theme and Louis Armstrong’s love theme from 1969’s On Her Majesty’s Secret Service are both included, and the expanded edition adds several integral score pieces by The John Barry Orchestra and other original songs heard in the films by Dame Shirley Bassey, Marvin Hamlisch, The Pretenders, Moby, k.d. lang, David Arnold, and others.
For 50 years, a significant part of the excitement leading up to each new James Bond adventure in espionage has been the reveal of each film’s theme song and its recording artist.
Many of music’s top stars have been honored to write and record new songs for 007, to see and hear their music brought to life in the films’ sultry opening credits and reprised in score pieces within the film.
Many Bond themes have been major hits around the world. Dame Shirley Bassey’s “Goldfinger,” Tom Jones’ “Thunderball,” Paul McCartney and Wings’ “Live And Let Die,” Carly Simon’s “Nobody Does It Better,” Sheena Easton’s “For Your Eyes Only,” Rita Coolidge’s “All Time High,” Duran Duran’s “A View To A Kill,” Garbage’s “The World Is Not Enough,” Madonna’s “Die Another Day,” and Jack White and Alicia Keys’ “Another Way To Die” are just some of the evocative Bond themes featured on ‘Best Of Bond… James Bond.’
