Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Original score composed by and conducted John Barry.
  • Recorded at CTS Studios, London, England in April 1967. Includes liner notes by Jeff Bond.
  • All tracks have been digitally remastered.
  • The most interesting and unusual of the James Bond soundtracks, You Only Live Twice was also something of a poor relation to the other soundtracks in the series, never selling as well as the earlier ones. John Barry's score reflects the movie's extensive use of Japanese settings and cultural background, with Japanese-flavored melodies and even the use of Japanese instruments in some tracks. Additionally, in lieu of the usual emphasis on action underscoring, You Only Live Twice is more lyrical and atmospheric -- even the title tune, sung by Nancy Sinatra, is the most unusual in the series to date, a sultry ballad with a haunting central melody, although its best incarnation (with all due respect to Sinatra) is its appearance in the instrumental "Mountains and Sunsets." ~ Bruce Eder
