EMI Are Proud To Release The Ultimate, Bond Theme-Track Compilation Album. The ThemeMusic From Bond Films Has, From The Off, Been Hugely Significant In The Overall Impact Of The Bond Films. Before Anyone Had Even Tought About “Lifestyle” Or Marketing Aspirations, Bond Was Doing It Big Time. Every Dad And Son Wanted That Aston Martin And Every Mum And Girl Wanted To Be Swept Of Their Feet (Usually In A Bikini Or Cocktail Frock) By A Man With A Wad To Blow In Monte Carlo. The Accompaniment Was The Strains Of The Monty Norman Orchestra’s “James Bond Theme” From Dr. No, Or Carly Simon’s Erotically Charged “Nobody Does It Better”, And Of Course The Classic From Shirley Bassey “Goldfinger”.

From Dr No, The Very First Film In The Massively Popular Series Of Bond Films (Based On The Character Created By Novelist Ian Fleming), Music Has Been An Integral Part Of The Movies Great Success.
In The Liner Notes To “The Best Of Bond…James Bond”, The Late Producer Albert R. Broccoli Says, “The Compelling Nature Of This Music Has Been An Essential Ingredient In The Make Up Of The 007 Movies. We’ve Been Gratified That Audiences Have Found It Exciting To See Bond Films Over The Years, But We’ve Worked To Make sure That The Music Is Thrilling Too.
The Album Includes Liner Notes From Noted Bond Expert Danny Biedermann, Producer And Director Of The Bond Documentary “A Spy For All Seasons”
“The Best Of Bond…James Bond” CD Comes Out The Very Same Day MGM Launch Their Autumn’99 Marketing Campaign Around The Re-Issue Of The Entire Bond Catalogue On Video. The Album Will be TV Advertised And There Will Be Some “Talked About” Marketing Promotions, That You Will Be Informed Of On A “Need To Know” Basis Only. Other Promotions Will Tie In To The Release On November 26 Of The Newest James Bond Film “The World Is Not Enough”.
