5.0 out of 5 stars It's finally here! 18 Feb 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
It is no exaggeration to say that some admirers of John Barry's work have been waiting for this re-release of On Her Majesty's Secret Service for decades.
Well, it was worth the wait; the work on this disk is truly incredible. The soundtrack now runs to over 75 minutes, and features all those cues that could previously only be heard by viewing the film (Gumbold's Safe, the Ice Cavern scene, Bond's dalliances at Piz Gloria, and so on. Only the ice waltz source music is missing, but that's simply because a disk can only hold so much.
The reproduction is so pin-sharp that you can hear all manner of orchestrations which were lost on past releases - and that's what makes this such a good buy. We always knew there was something special about these early Bond scores, but now we can hear every bit of the inventive genius that went into them.
It leaves you longing for the glory days of James Bond music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better 34 years late than never 9 April 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
OHMSS was the first Bond film I ever saw (at Christmas 1969) and it's had a special place in my affections ever since. IMHO both the film and George Lazenby were vastly underrated for many years, although that now seems to have changed.
Surely, however, no-one can argue that John Barry served up some of his finest music for this film: exciting, sinister, romantic and a perfect match for the images on screen.
For twenty years I hunted for a copy of the soundtrack album. Finally the OST was released on CD - but there was still something missing, the minor cues that didn't make it to the soundtrack album but added immeasurably to the atmosphere of the film.
Now, at last, it's here! The full score, remastered, in all its glory. Everyone involved in this gets a big, big thank-you from me. If you only buy one Bond OST you can't get better than this. And if you have the original album don't hesitate to shell out a few more quid for the bonus tracks. You won't regret it, believe me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bond music at its finest 2 Sep 2005
Format:Audio CD
I owned the previous release of this Bond soundtrack and as enjoyable as it was, the running time left you gasping for more... so here it is. As part of the Bond remastered series, the entire score is presented so at last you can enjoy unreleased gems such as Gumbold's safe and the escape from Piz Gloria. Barry was at the top of his game and added incredible atmosphere to the movie and it seems incredible that a full release took 40 years. The only problem with the Bond remastered series is that the discs present the music as the soundtrack was originally released followed by unreleased tracks at the end, rather than rearrange them into order for a more satisfactory listen. Thankfully, OHMSS doesn't suffer too greatly from this as the cues are unedited and independent, so programme them into the correct movie order and enjoy. A classic.

To some this was John Barry's greatest score for a Bond film. It features, on the one hand, a romantic feel to the proceedings as we see Bond in a relationship quite like no other in the series, and on the other, epic overtures suggesting the scale of events concerning Piz Gloria and Blofeld's operation. Also included is "We Have All The Time In The World" by the great Louis Armstrong which is still recognised worldwide although not readily connected to the film.
"Ski Chase" provides the audience with a really atmospheric theme for the spectacular chase between Bond and Blofeld away from Piz Gloria. So good was this tune that it was reprised to some degree in A View To A Kill. "Battle At Piz Gloria" is a similar style theme, with great orchestral involvement. That is not to say that there is no variation. Providing a more mellow tune, "Try" and the instrumental version of "We Have All The Time In The World" lowers the tone with the films lighter moments.
"This Never Happened To The Other Feller", the music to most of the pre-credits sequence, is a combination of both loud and quiet, especially the before, during and after fight bits... Overall I have to agree with the many and say that this is one of the best.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best... Barry's best! 27 May 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Most consider this to be Barry's best 007 score. It certainly contains his best Main Theme (which bizarrely is stuck half-way through the disc); a pounding electric guitar/brass piece which lends itself perfectly to the action cues such as 'Ski Chase' and 'Battle At Piz Gloria'. These are the best action cues in the Bond series.
It also contains one of Barry's best songs in the sublime 'We Have All The Time In The World' sung by the late, great Louis Armstrong. The tune also features as a heartrending instrumental (where Tracy dies in Bonds arms), as a rather unnecessary lounge version and as part of the track 'Journey To Blofeld's Hideaway' which is a lovely cue that perfectly images the beauty of the Alps.
The Bond Theme makes its customary appearance as part of 'This Never Happened To The Other Feller' where it's incorporated into a lovely opening melody before moving into an insistant and harsh brass piece for the fight in the sea. It also appears as part of the End Title.
Of the other tracks, 'Over And Out' is a repetitive cue that sounds nice but ambles without getting anywhere and 'Try' is a lounge music cue. Finally there's the song 'Do You Know How Christmas Trees Are Grown?' Very Eurovision Song Contest and a pleasant little ditty, but it's most definately not Bond music and sounds like a refugee from a Disney film score!
And not for the first time on a Bond album some of the best music is missing. Where is the classic Barry suspense theme for the safe breaking sequence? Why aren't there more action cues incorporating the theme?
A very good album, but I wish someone would re-release it with extra cues as Ryko did with For Your Eyes Only and Living Daylights. Then we'd be talking a 6 Star rating!
