As 007 fans eagerly await the November 14 U.S. opening of MGM’s new James Bond film, ‘QUANTUM OF SOLACE,’ Capitol/EMI announces an expanded CD, CD/DVD and digital release of ‘The Best Of Bond… James Bond’ on October 28. The CD and digital album both feature 23 musical standouts from the Bond franchise’s 46 years plus a previously unreleased bonus track, and the CD/DVD includes five music videos, a filmed concert performance and more.

Just as James Bond has evolved over time, so have the films’ memorable themes. ‘The Best Of Bond… James Bond’ collects an impressive selection of classic and contemporary Bond themes by many of popular music’s top stars, including Paul McCartney and Wings’ “Live & Let Die,” Madonna’s “Die Another Day,” Duran Duran’s chart-topping “A View To A Kill,” Shirley Bassey’s “Goldfinger,” Tina Turner’s “GoldenEye,” kd lang’s “Surrender,” Sheryl Crow’s “Tomorrow Never Dies,” Chris Cornell’s “You Know My Name,” Carly Simon’s “Nobody Does It Better,” and Tom Jones’ “Thunderball,” among many others. John Arnold’s previously unreleased “James Bond Theme” closes the collection.

EON Productions/Danjaq, LLC, is owned by the Broccoli family and has produced twenty two James Bond films since 1962, including ‘QUANTUM OF SOLACE.’ The James Bond films, produced by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, make up the longest running franchise in film history and include the recent blockbuster films ‘GoldenEye,’ ‘Tomorrow Never Dies,’ ‘The World is Not Enough,’ ‘Die Another Day’ and ‘Casino Royale.’ EON Productions and Danjaq LLC, are affiliate companies and control all worldwide merchandising of the James Bond franchise.
