This review is from: Come Spy With Us ~ The Secret Agent Songbook (Audio CD)
Featuring 25 spy-themed tracks from the cinema and TV of the Sixties when the world was obsessed with the very real threat presented by the Cold War, this is first class compilation from Ace Records. Given that it's not genre themed in a music sense, there are are many different styles of music on offer. From the seductive pop of Dusty Springfield's 'The Look of Love' to the icy cool of John Barry's 'A Man Alone' via a couple of Motown cuts from The Supremes and Smokey Robinson & The Miracles and some big orchestral and easy listening tracks (and a healthy helping of kitsch!), there really is something for everyone. Perfectly sequenced and featuring extensive liner notes with reproduction images of film posters and record covers, it's an enjoyable and memorable 62 minute mission.

5.0 out of 5 stars What An Enjoyable Blast!, 28 April 2014

I brought this cd not knowing the majority of tracks on it but more than this the ones I did know I thought I hated, so why did I by it? Is it because it has great front cover artwork and design, is it because you’re always guaranteed fantastic sound quality with any ‘Ace’ release and a great accompanying booklet. The answer is yes to both of those and what’s life without a gamble or two.
This compilation is the most ‘enjoyable’- not the best, greatest or musically world changing, just simply enjoyable. Packed with Themes/instrumentals which I normally hate but the ones included here are truly fantastic, which I had forgotten. The theme tunes to ‘Mission: Impossible’ and the ‘Bond’ theme are outstanding of course. Many of the vocal tracks are equally enjoyable – ‘Last of the secret agents’ by Nancy Sinatra, ‘Where the bullets fly’ by Susan Maughan, ‘The silencers’ by Vicki Carr (although I do prefer Patti Seymour’s version). Two really enjoyable tracks from Motown’s finest – ‘Dr. Goldfoot…’ by The Supremes and the title track by Smokey Robinson and the Miracles. Others from The Walker Bros the ever great Matt Monro are also very good. Overall, the compilation flows very well from one track to another, put it on and simply enjoy. Highly recommended (a surprise indeed) 10/10.

Memories prompted this purchase as I had an LP Vinyl of similar tracks. Most of the tracks were very good and matched my memories if the old LP. A good purchase
