I have noticed a lot of blogs seem to have "theme days" so I decided to start James Bond Friday. In a nutshell I will be posting a James Bond Soundtrack every Friday until I run out of James bond Soundtrack's.
This soundtrack is missing a key element, the splashy, sexy, raucous, opening number sung by a sexy Shirley Bassey/Tom Jones type. But what it does have is The Three Blind Mice Calypso.
I had no idea the soundtrack was so ethnic! I actually love this kind of music, it sounds like The Ventures made out with Martin Denny, not at all what I think of when I think of a James Bond Film Score. And then I realize with shock and horror that I may not have ever seen Dr. No....and added to my Netflix que.
This is the Jamaican Rock, my final selection for this post, it reminds me of Bud Shank's Brazilian jazz album. I will have to listen to this again...shaken not stirred.
