Marvin Hamlisch - Bond '77 (1977)
My favourite James Bond theme interpretation. This is a great single as it has the equally lovely Ride To Atlantis on the flip. A different mix to the album version.
A few years back my wife and I went to see a Bond Night at the Birmingham Symphony Hall with the Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. The evening was hosted by the lovely Honor Blackman. The music was, of course, fantastic. The orchestra did both of these tracks. Their version of Bond '77 was amazing!
If you've never heard this version of the famous theme then you're in for a real treat.
