THE BEST OF BOND…JAMES BOND: il doppio album con 50 anni di colonne sonore di 007

Per  il 50° anniversario di James Bond è uscito "The Best of Bond…James Bond", un doppio cd contenente ben 50 anni di colonne sonore dei leggendari film dell’agente segreto 007 scelte e rimasterizzate in digitale e pubblicate su etichetta Capitol/EMI, a quattro giorni dal Global James Bond Day che ha celebrato l’uscita del primo film dedicato a Bond, Dr No. 

 

Il doppio album “Best Of Bond … James Bond” è disponibile dal 9 ottobre, nei negozi tradizionali e in digitale e raccoglie le sigle memorabili di tutti i 22 film ufficiali di James Bond, a partire dal 1962 con la canzone della ’The John Barry Orchestra’s seminal’ tratta dal film Dr. No. Nell’album sono presenti inoltre i brani orchestrati dall’Orchestra di John Barry, la canzone d’amore di Louis Armstrong, entrambe tratte da On Her Majesty’s Secret Service del 1969.

 

L’edizione deluxe raccoglie inoltre alcuni pezzi in versione integrale della The Barry John Orchestra oltre ad altre canzoni originali di Shirley Bassey, Marvin Hamlisch, The Pretenders, Moby, K.D. Lang, David Arnold e di molti altri artisti, brani tutti rigorosamente presenti nei film di 007. Molte stelle della musica internazionale hanno avuto l’onore di scrivere e registrare delle canzoni per l’agente 007, brani che hanno accompagnato l’apertura dei film, i momenti più salienti e i titoli di coda. Molti pezzi scritti per James Bond sono stati dei grandissimi successi a livello planetario.

 

Il primo best of uscì nel 1992 per i 30 anni della saga, poi migliorato nel 1999, 2002 e 2008. Ma questo del 2012 si configura come il più completo, visto che conterrà ben 50 canzoni, anche se sarà esclusa l'ultima nuova canzone dedicato al fil "Skyfall" di Adele per ovvi motivi commerciali.
