This is NOT the original Soundtrack

2 02 2011

In the early 80s I spent a lot of time in Jamaica, mostly in Kingston, twice on the north shore.  No matter where you were someone would point out that that villa over there was Goldeneye, home of Ian Fleming, author of the James Bond novels.  As for the Bond music, I was more into the Desmond Dekker take on it all, but I did enjoy the big-burst horns (Stan Kenton, thank you), twangy guitars (Duane Eddy via Vic Flick, you’re welcome) and girly openings (frat boys I’m sure) of every 007 film.  So the death of composer John Barry sent me into the stacks for a quick lookaround.

Here at the ARC we have whole sections devoted to themes for intuitive finds, like ‘God’, ‘Black God’, ‘Southern God’, ‘Music To…’, ‘Music for…’, ‘Outer Space’ – ways to group the unsortable for the inevitable need.  Here are a few of our favorite, among the 100s, ‘Secret Agent’ LPs.

The above in honor the man who married Jane Birkin, now on to more serious matters…
