John Barry - From Russia with Love [LP] (limited to 500, import)
Exciting, symphonic and instantly hummable, From Russia with Love's score (1963) is nothing short of a masterpiece. The opening theme sets the tone, beginning with a brash staccato version of the James Bond theme before suddenly sliding into a smooth swagger. John Barry keeps doing that same thing throughout the soundtrack, setting up expectations then knocking them down. Limited edition of 500 copies.
