2012 marks the 50th Anniversary of the iconic James Bond film franchise, and in conjunction with EON Productions and Metro-Goldwyn-
Mayer Studios, Capitol/EMI is proud to join the world's celebration of 007 (http://www.007.com/
). Best Of Bond… James Bond,
a new commemorative collection of the legendary films' digitally remastered music, was released in two configurations on October 9th (October 8th outside of North America). Best Of Bond… James Bond
features the memorable theme songs from all 22 official Bond films and will be available on CD and digitally, and as a deluxe, "50 Years - 50 Tracks" 2CD and digital collection.
For 50 years, a significant part of the excitement leading up to each new James Bond adventure in espionage has been the reveal of each film's theme song and its recording artist. Many of music's top stars have been honored to write and record new songs for 007, to see and hear their music brought to life in the films' sultry opening credits and reprised in score pieces within the film. Many Bond themes have been major hits around the world. Dame Shirley Bassey's "Goldfinger,"
Tom Jones' "Thunderball,"
Paul McCartney and Wings' "Live And Let Die," Carly Simon's "Nobody Does It Better," Sheena Easton's "For Your Eyes Only," Rita Coolidge's "All Time High," Duran Duran's "A View To A Kill," Garbage's "The World Is Not Enough," Madonna's "Die Another Day," and Jack White and Alicia Keys' "Another Way To Die" are just some of the evocative Bond themes featured on Best Of Bond… James Bond
