An essential addition to any Bond music collection,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The James Bond Songbook (Audio CD)This is a fantastic album, performed by some of the best jazz musicians of all time. The CD contains cover versions of the themes from the films Dr No to You Only Live Twice and 6 original recordings inspired by Ian Fleming's novels Casino Royale, Man With The Golden Gun, Moonraker, For Your Eyes Only, Live and Let Die and Diamonds Are Forever - these are NOT cover versions of the themes from the Bond films (the films hadn't been made when this album was released!)
One minor niggle is that based on the actual CD content the track listing on the sleeve is wrong:
Track 1 should be The James Bond Theme
Track 7 should be Thunderball
The other tracks are correct. However, don't let that stop you from buying this album - this is how cover theme albums should be made!
