Twelve tracks of Barry/Bond music at his best. Capturing the feel of Japan with his oriental music but the best is his Mountains and Sunsets track which is an instrumental version of the main theme. American singer Nancy Sinatra, daughter of legendary Frank, provides the vocal version for the opening and end titles. Part of the theme was used later with great success by singer Robbie Williams for his Millennium song.
Great orchestrations by 'The Master' and You Only ... remains one of my most played Bond CDs.
