Remastered in 2002 as part of the 40th Anniversary celebration ( see The Best Of Bond ... ). Finally get my hands on John Barry's penultimate 007 movie score having missed out on the vinyl release.
Despite the quality, there's not much variety in his score with the composer mainly using two themes - one for action & another for romantic moments with Stacey which are instrumental versions of the main & end theme by pop group Duran Duran. The album is short in length and seems over before it's started ! There's no inclusion of The Beach Boys tune on the 2nd track or any oriental music for Bond & Ivanova's love tub scene. The James Bond Theme makes a brief appearance during the 3rd track.
Alas like Moore's final appearance in the movie not one of the composer's best but still needed to complete your collection.
