:: 007 Theme ::

Thus far, I’ve managed to get through life without ever having seen a James Bond film. Maybe I should try to change that, as I’ll have some extra time in my schedule, not to mention a void to fill in my soul, now that I can’t vote for Sanjaya every Tuesday night. Anyway, I don’t need the films to dig the big, brassy spy music sounds that came out of the Sixties, and The Roland Shaw Orchestra’s Themes from the James Bond Thrillers is one of the better examples that I own.

The UK branch of Decca was London Records and Roland Shaw was one of their leading arrangers during their Phase 4 years. He recorded a lot of spy theme records for them, including three volumes of James Bond Thrillers. This is the first volume, which includes music from the first three films: Dr. No, From Russia With Love, and Goldfinger.

My grandparents had a treasure trove of albums like this. Actually, I think they still have them, but never got near the garage of their house to find out if they are stored somewhere. They
had all the herp alperts, lots of cha-cha stuff, and TONS of instrumentals like this one. They might have even had this james bond album.
Anyway, this was definitely made for the middle-age market, looking for something safe to spin on their hi-fi as they served highballs in their finished basements somewhere in the suburbs of any major city in the 60's.
I think they served some prurient soft-porn needs as well, as so many covers had cheesecake served
up. I think lots of dads used these for purposes contrary to aural pleasure for sure. I know the whipped cream girl got lots of prurient activity....one of the little pleasures of seeking out lost albums.......I think the times
were so prude, that sex just came oozing out where it could, and album art was definitely a fissure
of choice it leaked out to....

Are you sure this isn't the actual
orchestra that performed the theme for the movie soundtracks?
The james bond theme in particular sounds spot on to the original.
The others do as well, minus the shirley bassey vocal. Looks like I'll have to do some IMDB homework.........

Any chance you would reactivate these links? I have Vols 2 & 3 of this and am looking for the original. I have a lot of ripped celebrity and Hawaiian LPs to trade.
