CD REVIEW! Best Of Bond - James Bond

With Bond fans celebrating 50 years of British secret agent 007, and with the release of the new Bond movie, Sky Fall, this CD is a nifty reminder of why we so love the James Bond theme songs. The 23-track single-disc edition and deluxe edition of Best Of Bond… James Bond both feature the themes from all 22 Bond films released since 1962, including The John Barry Orchestra’s seminal “James Bond Theme” from Dr. No with striking cover art depicting Bond’s “Golden Girl” and the official 50th anniversary logo. The John Barry Orchestra’s orchestral main theme and Louis Armstrong’s love theme from 1969’s On Her Majesty's Secret Service are both included, and the expanded edition adds several integral score pieces by The John Barry Orchestra and other original songs heard in the films by Dame Shirley Bassey, Marvin Hamlisch, The Pretenders, Moby, k.d. lang, David Arnold, and others. Unfortunately, the new theme for Sky Fall, sung by Adele, is not on here. But this is still very good listening material if you are a Bond fan.=
