Reviews
Among The Best Of The '60s.

I've owned this soundtrack for decades--first on the Colgems LP label and later on the debut Varese Sarabande CD release in 1990 and I never get tired of listening to it. In fact, it gets better every time I play it! The haunting theme song, "The Look of Love", is stunningly performed by the legendary Dusty Springfield and became a major international hit for her in 1967. The song also brought an Academy Award nomination to its writers Burt Bacharach and Hal David, their third nomination in a row. They would finally win in 1969 with "Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head" from "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid". This is one soundtrack that genuinely captures the madcap atmosphere of the Swinging Sixties.

Probably one of the BEST soundtracks EVER!
by a soundtrack collector (March 3, 2006)
Burt Bacharach has often been criticized for writing scores that detract from the films, but in this case there probably hasn't been such a perfect match of sound and image since Mancini scored for Hepburn.
The sounds here are pure Bacharach and couldn't have come out of any other era. All Go-Go music and "Benny Hill" style chases, it's the best Bond music from a non-Bond film. The title track has the most infectious horns!
Dusty Springfield is all breathy sex on "the Look of Love" and every other cut is a highlight. Only wish they had the lyrics to the "Casino Royale" theme for the finale.
