Format: Audio CD
This LP was recorded towards the end of 1965 and the original 12-track version has been available as a 'twofer' CD with "The sound of '65" for some time. This version includes those 12 tracks and also the singles "Lease On Love/My Heart's In Little Pieces", "St. James Infirmary/Soul Tango" and "You Gotta Have Love/I Love You".

I had the LP of "The sound of '65" and thought it was a great record, a real original fusing R&B and jazz and being a precursor of jazz-rock. However, when I first heard "There's a Bond between us" I was really disappointed because although it featured many of the same elements it just didn't seem to click in the same way. Listening to it again now I'm still disappointed, the original songs aren't as good and many of the covers sound just like going through the motions. Jack Bruce isn't featured as much, he only sings on "Hear me calling your name" which I didn't like at all. "Baby can it be true" is this records' "Tammy" - truly dreadful! I did like the great version of Roy Hamilton's "Don't let go" and also Bond's own slow blues "Have you ever loved a woman" and we also get the original version of Bond's song "Walking in the park". "Camels and Elephants" is a Ginger Baker drum solo which probably worked live but doesn't really come across on disc. Everything else is sort of OK, well-played but there didn't seem to be any progression from the wonderful debut LP recorded earlier in the same year.

It's great to finally have the single "St. James Infirmary" on CD but unless you are a Bond competist I would probably go for the twofer of "The sound of '65/There's a Bond between us" which is better value and features the better material on the earlier record. Bond was one of the true innovators of British music who sadly never got the recognition and rewards he deserved.
