After the excellent work John Barry did for the Dr. No soundtrack, it was no surprise that he returned for another stab. The work he did on the Michael Caine promoter, "Zulu", in the same year as Dr. No, merely backs up the decision the producers took. Besides the main title, the other tune of note is "007". This would be reprised in form or another in every John Barry score and others too. Although it stands as an alternative to the original "James Bond Theme", I dare say that confronted with "007" people would identify it just as easily as the other courtesy of its repetition over the years. Atmospheric tunes of note include "Meeting In St Sophia" (sic) and "Gypsy Camp" which, respectively, provide haunting and vibrant melody to more interesting areas of the plot.
