Thanks for giving my wallet a much needed rest.

Nah, it is extremely impressive what this label was able to pull off. Titanic and Shire's Apocalypse Now, especially.

Bond.

I repeat, Bond.

Talk about barriers being broken!

Does it really break a barrier beyond the David Arnold scores, though? I remember there being talk a while back that the Arnold scores might be possible, but not necessarily something like Kamen's Licence to Kill.

It is a HUGE barrier broken.

Danjaq/EON had previously proven an obstacle to any Bond releases (MV has commented on this in the past). Now they have let LLL through the doors. It's a massive moment.

All I have to do now is find $46.50 from somewhere!

You have to pay more than $15 in shipping? That's crazy.

$16.50 shipping to the UK, plus currency exchange fees. $14 for the first CD and $2.50 for a second CD (as it's a two disc set). Such is life in Europe if you want to buy US titles.

This, pretty much. Though I don't blame Intrada for it.

I am dreading the possibility of USPS increasing international rates again in January. It could kill off interest in Europe for good.

Hell, we may be getting to a point where it's cheaper for Intrada to ship via Fedex!!!

An amazing batch of releases from LLL, Expanded Bond scores are my no.1 grail !!!!!!!!!!

THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN, THE SPY WHO LOVED ME and OCTOPUSSY, are all said to exist in the vaults at Abbey Road.

MOONRAKER is supposedly missing (presumed destroyed), and A VIEW TO A KILL was said to be AWOL from the vaults.

I presume that the latter scores are accounted for?.

I'm wondering whether Silva Screen Records owns NEVER SAY NEVER AGAIN in perpetuity?.

I'd love to hear Marvin Hamlisch's SPY film tracks, or John Altman's additional scoring from GOLDENEYE - both of which have never been released.

It is not lost. That's a myth.

No idea, but their CD release seemed complete.

However I don't recommend it - it's the worst Bond score of all time. I bought the CD to ensure I had a complete Bond set. It's jazzy but sticks out like a sore thumb and gives no musical pleasure whatsoever. What Legrand was thinking of when he composed this, I have no idea.

The song is very good, though.

It has a number of alternates in place of actual film tracks.

Never Say Never Again is one of few scores and albums that almost makes me physically ill. Just seeing the album's cover has the effect of bringing the day's lunch back towards the esophagus. I wish I were kidding.

I will take your word for it, but I doubt the actual film tracks could improve it.

Lol! I hope this one isn't on Intrada's schedule, otherwise the Intrada hierarchy will take a dim view of our unusually frank views. :D

It is awful. The only positive thing I can say is that I sold it on ebay and made my money back. :)

I'll be on the lookout for laser sights beaming through my window, or at least being confronted by waves of hired ninjas. I have plenty of otherwise useless jewel cases in my reserves with which to take on said ninjas.

There's no doubt that some label will release a definitive Never Say Never Again, and it will mark "The Day the Soundtrack Album Died."

I'm also hoping with the release of Die Another Day that it opens the doors for more expanded Bond titles, especially License to Kill & i wouldn't say no to The Spy Who Loved Me either. So i will be supporting LLL with this score. Wonder if Intrada can release a Bond title too though ?
