Very cool! And so kind of them to ship the album with a pistol!
Super interesting to hear - and very regrettable of course. Hopefully these missing tracks will emerge some day. I wonder why there were restrictions on the number of cues Lukas could use during the 2003 restorations whereas there seems to be no such limitation on the recent La-La-Land releases of the Brosnan soundtracks.
I know George Martin did a Bond medley on his album which is rather cool, and Barry made a bit of one on one of his 70s albums I think..? Are there any other ‘proper’ bits of released 007 music by the official composers outside of the films? I guess Arnold had an arrangement of the Bond theme on his DAF single and did that advert for N Peal’s Bond collection.
Very interesting! Yeah shame it wasn't released. Do you know where the George Martin track and the Arnold track you mentioned can be found?
This isn't a legit product - but a rip that someone on another forum has produced. It is expanded but the quality isn't amazing on some tracks. And some tracks (e.g. the tank chase) are not the film rip but instead taken from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra Bond release.
Martin's 'The Bond Suite' you can hear on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/track/3MX3FONmE6GSGiVymXW88p?si=b83323d7fbc04ee7
And here's the N Peal ad scored by Arnold:
But I'm not sure the DAF B-side is online anywhere. As I remember it wasn't a superb version and I think it was made to be sampled on Shaken And Stirred.
Thank you for both! Great tracks! Had no idea the Martin one existed :)
I used the full length version of the track from the recently released La-La Land Records album and edited it accordingly. There are subtle structural differences, notably at the end and I think it flows better in the album listening experience. I've then moved the full length version of the track to the end of the album as a bonus. Hope you enjoy.
Is the film version not just the single/radio edit with a very truncated ending?
I've re-posted the link; see if that works for you. There are more edits to the film version than a truncated ending.
Okay, so I see the little break at about 1.40 is shortened and obviously the song just cuts off, but that's it, isn't it?

Up for discussion , are there any more cues of unreleased music that have not been listed above from the DR NO score ??
Annoying that no recording sessions have surfaced.
Right, trying again - please let me know if you don't have any joy with this link!
I've actually started a thread with this purpose in mind:
I've gone through about ten other soundtracks, so will upload my notes for them as soon as time permits :)
We begin with Five Days from Alaska, from A View to a Kill, a track that @PropertyOfALady requested a long while ago.
Come back tomorrow for another track.
A technical question - does anyone else notice a brief pause in the music at the 9 second mark? Might just be a download issue on my side but thought best to check
I downloaded it again just to be sure, no issues with the file on my end.
Even if you're familiar with the track, I recommend not skipping ahead to hear the new bit of music right away. Don't ruin the joy of discovery.
No video this time, because I don't want a copyright strike.
Another gem! Thanks for sharing, much appreciated.
Thanks for this :)
