This review is from: Themependium (Audio CD)
On Her Majesty's Secret Service is not the original from film. In fact there a quite a few tracks that Barry scored differently on various albums over the years. Still John Barry was still one of the best composers of our time. Still worth a purchase though

This review is from: Meteorites (MP3 Download)
I think this is a good album. Not too keen on the quality of the recording though.
Went to see them at Shepherds Bush empire last week. They were good. Hope to see Mac this year at the Union Chapel if its on his schedule.

1.0 out of 5 stars Big Essex Fan ...But......., 1 Feb 2014

This review is from: Traveller [DVD] (DVD)
Was looking so forward to this film. Acting is terrible .The soundtrack compiles of a new Jazzy version of Lamplight which is good. The rest of the film continuously plays the instrumental version of "Are you still my true love " from the 1978 Imperial Wizard album.

1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid at all costs, 28 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you have the remastered Bond CDs avoid this. The original piece of music used at the start of film has been copied from the DVD. The original 18 tracks are the same. There are some alternate tracks of From Russia With Love . These consist of a Live version from 1972 and a re record from the 1968 John Barry album and not forgetting The James Bond theme also from the same album.

I do like this final outing for Connery in the Original Bond series. Good picture quality. Once again should have been left in the original mono soundtrack.

5.0 out of 5 stars Watch in MONO, 5 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This Blu Ray edition gives you the chance to view the film in MONO or 5:1 Stereo. Go to MENU Select LANGUAGE DECRYPTION select AUDIO then ENGLISH MONO. The film was released in MONO in 1969. Watching it restored in MONO gives you the chance to hear the brilliant soundtrack. I found that watching in Stereo with the added and enchanced sound effects overpowered the musical score. Give it a try .......And enjoy the best Bond film made.

5.0 out of 5 stars ex Mr.Big [ U.K], 7 Aug 2007
This review is from: Broken Home (Audio CD)
Good album.This band was formed by ex band member Mr.Big [U.K ] not the U.S.A Band.His Name Dicken [ Jeff payne ]
In fact Angel Air records have a double C.D released by Dicken called Mr Big Broken Home and back.This C.D spans 30 years of Dickens work.Go to Google and call up Oxford rocks.This is the Mr Big website.
Excellent stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars long good friday, 2 Jun 2007
This review is from: The Long Good Friday (Audio CD)
Avoid this edition.It is recorded from the vinyl!!

If you want the original soundtrack Buy The long good Friday 25th anniversary 2x DVD and when you get it you will find that a 3rd disc is included is the soundtrack!!! Some people are asking up to £225 for a copy of this soundtrack on Amazon. You can get this D.V.D through Play.com.

5.0 out of 5 stars Long good friday, 2 Jun 2007
This film is a must.You get the C.D of the soundtrack included!!!!

Look under music for The long good friday[ with Amazon ] and you will see that people are asking up to £225 !!!! for the C.D. so it is worth buying the 25th anniv. just for the soundtrack.
