Music: Best of James Bond 30th Anniversary Set

1992 marked the 30th Anniversary of 007 on the big screen and to commemorate the occasion, EMI Records launched 2 different CDs. The first CD includeds the James Bond theme, plus all of the theme songs prior to Goldeneye. The Limited Edition, includes all of that plus several bonuses.

The Limited Edition contains rare and never before heard tracks. For example, it includes a demo version of YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE that has no claim of ownership. In other words, John Barry and others have been unable to figure out who sang this version. See the Lyrics page for the words to this unusual song. Also included is a jazzy version of Goldfinger sung by Anthony Newley (listen to it and you`ll understand why it was substituted with Shirley Bassey`s version). There are also two radio spots included as well as rare orchestral tracks from Goldfinger.

The Limited Edition includes 31 digitally remastered recordings on 2 discs and a 28 page booklet that includes notes, movie still photos and other collectable artwork. Shell out the extra few dollars and buy this edition over the standard one.
