Yes, yes, I checked the existing music threads, but eventually decided this was cool enough to deserve its own topic.

They're releasing the SHEET MUSIC of FOR YOUR EYES ONLY, straight from the original documents!




I have paired them with the respective music tracks.

BILL CONTI: For Your Eyes Only (in Full Score)


After scoring Moonraker, John Barry was unable to return to the UK to score For Your Eyes Only, the twelfth entry in the EON Productions/United Artists James Bond franchise. Barry recommended Bill Conti, who had recently earned Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations for Rocky and An Unmarried Woman. Producer Cubby Broccoli and director John Glen wanted For Your Eyes Only to return to the style of the early Ian Fleming 007 stories. The result was more grounded, gritty, and realistic than its predecessors.

Bond is ordered to recover recover a missile command system before Soviet agents, while becoming entangled in a web of deception spun by a Greek businessman and a woman seeking to avenge the murder of her parents.

Conti delivered a disco-influenced score that continued the James Bond musical language created by John Barry in a fresh, new direction. In 1982, Conti received his second Oscar nomination for his work on For Your Eyes Only – Best Music, Original Song category, cementing his place in the pantheon of 007 composers.

Engraved from the original orchestrations by Pete Myers and Bobby Richards.

This is such a kickass score. I'll probably have to get my filthy hands on this book.

And I sure hope it leads to more Bond scores getting similar treatment.

    Wow, that is badass! I would probably have bought the book whichever score it contained, but I have a soft spot for FYEO. What a fantastic opportunity to be able to dive right into Contis music!

    It's pretty cool that they're releasing the sheet music for this particular score, because it's quite the busy score in certain parts. Definitely much busier than the John Barry scores. In that sense, it would benefit a lot from a book. I'm especially looking forward to the Ski...Shoot...Jump sheet music.
