EMI's superlative two-CD BEST OF JAMES BOND celebrates the music that kept pace with the world's most famous secret agent. The first disc contains all of the 007 theme songs, from the original "James Bond" theme through Gladys Knight's power ballad from LICENCE TO KILL. Other classic theme performances include Shirley Bassey's "Goldfinger", Paul McCartney and Wings' thundering "Live and Let Die," and Carly Simon's "Nobody Does It Better" along the way. Disc two spotlights rare, previously unreleased theme demos -- including Dionne Warwick's alternate THUNDERBALL theme, "Mr.Kiss Kiss Bang Bang," and composer Anthony Newley singing a downright spooky version of GOLDFINGER -- plus radio spots and a generous helping of never-before-released score cues from GOLDFINGER and THUNDERBALL. Informative and insightful booklet notes by Danny Biederman compliment an all around wonderful collection.
