While taking over the Bond musical baton, composer Marvin Hamlisch brings his theatre ( Chorus Line ) & movie experience ( The Way We Were & The Sting ) to the world of 007. His score captures the panoramic Pyramids of Egypt and his upbeat new James Bond Theme re-titled Bond 77 for the opening ski chase is entertaining. Carly Simon's rendition of a memorable 007 song adds to the score but it's a shame the naval choir version used in the movie's ending isn't included.
Still The Spy Who Loved Me is a must for the Bond collection.
NB. As explained left, this US version cover is different and not a scratch on UK double opening vinyl cover with more colour movie stills.
