well having a bit of a look at the ol net like, I found this illuminating comment about this album I Quote:
During the 1970s Eric recorded various LPs for the Avenue International label, some of which included arrangements and compositions by composers who worked for the Amphonic library. His Eric Winstone Plays 007 LP from 1973 was co-produced and co-arranged by Syd Dale. Eric co-wrote Opus 88 that was included on the first Amphonic library LP, also composing for the Conroy and Francis Day and Hunter recorded music libraries. Eric died in 1974.
Comments: Eric co-wrote The Man With The Golden Gun with Syd Dale to showcase how they thought the theme for this particular Bond film should sound. Syd re-recorded it and released it again a year later on the Amphonic Super Sounds Unlimited LP. A driving, funky bass line played in unison with a Fender Rhodes piano and distorted electric guitar combines with drums that play an unusual pattern. This creates a throbbing rhythmic basis for the searing melody played by the trumpet section. The dramatic arrangement is complimented by the inclusion of John Barry-style staccato brass phrases, instantly recognisable from so many of his Bond scores. "
Thats from vinylvulture and it sums up the album for me, Great bond themes brilliantly played.I had the album on Cassette (with a new cover and extra tracks) for many a year and have played the absolute oxide out of it. and then like out of a weird dream I found a mint LP in a Radio station I was working at 10 years ago played on my all new preamp the sound sparkles !!
again minimal work on this as it was basically a mint LP (kind of!)
Encoded at 320 (FLACS could be arranged!)
I have also recorded the "newer" (6 extra tracks not on the lp) songs from the cassete version and will upload them if people want to hear em.
