5.0 out of 5 stars A high quality soundtrack 11 Oct 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Soundtracks from the 60s can very often come from a film sountrack rather than a master tape. This CD is very definitely from the master tape. As a result, the quality of the music is very good - the "trumpet blasting" moments do not distort.
The soundtrack is about 99.9% complete. Yes, it misses off the end of the end titles song but otherwise, everything else is there, including several versions of the same song.

Whilst listening to the ablum, it is easy to picture where the song snatches come from in the film. A worthy addition to an Auston Powers fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Probably one of the finest soundtracks ever! 21 Jan 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
As a total experience, Casino Royale promises much but delivers little. A sprawling mess that proves a big budget, star names (Sellars, Allen, Andress, Welles and Niven) and a collection of quality directors (Guest, Hughes and Houston) can still result in little more than a minor note in the history of cinema. It really is a film that generates strong feelings; you either love it or hate it.
One of the few redeeming features is the combination of Burt Bacharach's amazing score and Hal David's lyrics. Dusty Springfield sings The Look of Love while Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass play one of the most enduring themes in cinema history. The recurring brass sound that appears throughout the film is simple but memorable - fitting drama, comedy, action and chase scenes alike.
Bacharach is the only man who could produce appropriate music for scenes in which an ageing James Bond fights off airborne robot grouse bombs, armed with only a set of braces and a homing device, aided by an ex-paramour who will soon take holy orders.
Special. Buy it and make the first step towards a classic soundtrack collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Film Soundtracks of the 1960s 15 Nov 2003
Format:Audio CD
The 1967 film CASINO ROYALE did less than big business at the box office, and it would be a decade or so before the public really learned to appreciate its charms and turn it into a cult-favorite--but even while the film was struggling in theatrical release the Burt Bacharach soundtrack was very much admired, and to my mind it remains one of the best film soundtracks of that decade.
This is not the 1960s of Haight-Ashbury, Jimi Hendrix, and Grace Slick; it is instead the playboy-ish, tuxedoed-swinger 1960s: hip, sophisticated, and playful. And Bacharach not only does an over-the-top riff on the scores for the Sean Connery "Bond films," he also cleverly gives the whole pastiche a surprisingly retro feel; with such hits as "Winchester Cathedral" popular on the radio, 1920s musical idioms were all the rage in 1960s instrumental music, and Bacharach neatly filters those idioms into his "swinging spy" tone to create some truly unique musical moments.
Like most good soundtracks, the music for CASINO ROYALE rings changes on a precious few themes--and in this case there are three basic ones: the "Casino Royale Theme," recorded by Herp Albert and The Tijuana Brass, which pops with a harpsichord lead-in to one of the most memorable trumpet solos going; the "Miss Moneypenny Goes for Broke" theme, which uses hard brass and percussion to create a slightly humorous, slightly sleazy tone; and the soundtrack's centerpiece: the absolutely stunning Dusty Springfield interpretation of "The Look of Love." This is a knockout piece of music with a great lyric, and Springfield's full-throated, dreamy, and super-steamy vocal is quite possibly the single best thing she ever did in her long and distinguished career.
I did have a few issues with the CD, however.
