The Best of Bond...James Bond

I am a James Bond fan, dating back to being a child, sneaking my tiny TV with rabbit ears on to watch the the James Bond movie after my bedtime. I find myself watching them still, excited to see the Bond marathons on which lead up to the ultimate time.....the release of the new movie.

With in a few weeks, the newest edition to the Bond films is 'Quantum of Solace' opening on November 14. I am so excited to see the newest chapter and new style of Bond. To celebrate the new James Bond film, Capitol/EMI released an expanded CD, CD/DVD of The Best of Bond...James Bond. What a way to celebrate the new movie with 23 tracks of James Bond movie songs spanning 46 years!

I always have to watch the opening of the James Bond movies to enjoy the intro song, shaping the whole movie and setting the tone. This CD collection does a great job in taking you through the evolution of the music of the Bond films such as "Goldfinger" to "Die Another Day" . I find myself listening to my favorites such as "Live and Let Die" by Paul McCartney and Wings and "For Your Eyes Only" by Sheena Easton, all no only memorable James Bond Movies but powerful songs and noted recording artist. Still to this day, when I hear the theme song to The Spy Who Loved Me which is "Nobody Does it Better" by Carly Simon, I get emotional. As an added plus, the CD opens with the well known "James Bond Theme" by John Barry Orchestra and closes with a never released version by John Arnold. You also get five music videos and a concert performance. Over all, this collection of The Best of Bond...James Bond is a great addition for all James Bond fans, keeping you wondering what the next film will be along with what artist will add their name to a history of Bond films.
