Released in 2002 ( pre-DAD ) as part of the 40th Anniversary celebration this compilation CD is an updated version of the 30th CD. It's has the same running order with 2 tracks deleted ( Warwick's Mr. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and Barry's 007 Theme ) and five ending tracks added with the final one being GoldenEye's film trailer music released for the first time.
L A's Danny Biederman has updated his previous '91 contribution for the insert booklet with the new movies. Instead of Cubby Broccoli providing the opening paragraph, Michael Wilson & Barbara Broccoli now add a few lines. Also this time there are plenty of colour movie stills including an extra four page fold-out with Bond Girls and the 5 Bonds.
For a newcomer to the world of Bond music this is an excellent introduction. Despite having all the tracks bar the mentioned final one it's still a must for the collection especially if you pick it up like I did reduced in a record store sale.
As 007 once asked "Do you expect me to talk ?" No I expect you all to listen and enjoy !
