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.

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.

Unlike the vast majority of people who do not like this film or George Lazenby's Bond I think it is superior to the one that followed - Diamonds Are Forever. Now, to the score. The music works fine within the movie, outside of it is another matter. John Barry created a fine theme. Unfortunately, he, along with the track We Have All The Time In The World, uses it too often. Each track is virtually a rearrangement of these two tunes. It's by no means a bad soundtrack, it's just not one of his better scores to listen to separate from the movie.

OHMSS has long been one of my favourite Bond films, largely in part due to the excellent score from the ever reliable John Barry.

Something a bit different was required for the score to this film. There was still the usual big action sequences, but the score also has to underline the glimpses we get of Bond's vulnerable side, and highlight the romance as he genuinely falls in love.

John Barry wrote an exceptionally good score that brings forth all these moods in the film. We have the usual big and thunderous action themes that heighten the excitement, but this is immediately contrasted with slower gentler themes that accentuate the emotional development of the characters. It is these sudden changes and contrasts that makes the film, and music, so effective.

And finally, there is the piece de resistance. `All the time in the world' has to be one of the most memorable motifs in any bond film, especially the end title where we see Bond totally unable to cope with his grief, but the masterstroke was to engage Louis Armstrong to sing the theme for the scenes where Bond and Teresa are falling for each other. It's a sublime track (OK, I am biased as I am a huge fan of Armstrong), and beautifully describes what is being represented on the screen. The title is a bit ironic, as Armstrong was in failing health and probably new when he recorded this that he did not have all the time in the world left.

It's a great album, which can be listened to by anyone who has never seen the film with much enjoyment. This is the sign of a truly great soundtrack for me.

This 2003 release boasts an excellent remastering and restoration, the music is crystal clear. There are also a host of extra track which really add to the album. There is a booklet with an essay about the film and score, and some stills from the film. An excellent release of an excellent album, 5 stars.

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.

This John Barry soundtrack - arguably his best Bond soundtrack - has now been remastered to now include thirty-nine minutes of extra music. In the accompanying sleeve notes it states how "After Bond appears to resign from MI6 he goes through mementos of his previous adventures, and John Barry's score plays snippets of themes from the earlier movies to accompany them." Alas, this is not amongst the extras. But there is still enough to satisfy. Produced by Phil Ramone, a heavier use was made this time of the bass guitar - and also, strangely enough, the flute, but rarely together. Were they supposed to represent Bond and Diana Rigg's Teresa di Vicenzo respectively?

The main theme itself opens with five punched falling chords. Early use of electronic sequencers, bass guitar and percussion provide staged layers that are later replicated by the strings, whilst above all the trombones and then trumpets play out the theme. There are more reworkings of the theme in other tracks, such as "Over and Out".

It was the only Bond not to have a sung theme in the opening. So instead a song was inserted into the film itself, thus we have Louis Armstrong singing what seems now to have become a standard, the marvellous "We Have All the Time in the World" with lyrics by Hal David. The song features throughout the album in various forms, its laid-back late-night jazz-bar feel enriched by a soft but hesitant orchestra.

Other pieces of interest include the track "Journey to Blofeld's Hideaway", which reminded me of a Mahlerian horn-call from the Alps (as well as Barry's "Flight into Space" from his later score for `Moonraker'). The music in "Gumbold's Safe" is of a countdown and is so imaginatively scored that interest is never lost.
