James Bond Octopussy Soundtrack Double CD Set - 40th Anniversary Expanded Remastered Edition (Pre-order)

Available to pre-order, shipping early March.

Part of a limited edition of just 5,000. Introducing the 40th Anniversary remastered and expanded 2-CD re-issue of composer John Barry’s original motion picture score to Octopusssy. This new release showcases the film’s music in exhilarating fashion, with improved sound and never-before-released material.

Backstory. Composer John Barry delivers another bold, thrilling, dramatic and romantic orchestral score, along with a smooth, sensuous title track performed by Rita Coolidge. Here the composer combines his chase-and-action style from the ’60s with his more sophisticated, symphonic approach of the late ’70s and early ’80s, giving 007 the best of both musical worlds. 

Details. Produced by Neil S. Bulk and mastered by Doug Schwartz, Disc One of this deluxe release showcases the film’s Score Presentation and additional music, while a remaster of the original 1983 soundtrack album is housed on Disc Two, along with the CD premiere of the “Extended Instrumental Version” of “All Time High”!

The film score on Disc One has been sourced from ¼ inch stereo tapes of the film mixes, while Disc Two’s original 1983 soundtrack and the “Extended Instrumental Version” of “All Time High” are from ¼ inch stereo album masters. All of the tapes have been newly transferred in high resolution for this set.

This special release is limited to 5,000 units and features exclusive in-depth liner notes by “The Music of James Bond” author Jon Burlingame and design by Dan Goldwasser. Combined length of the double CD is 1 hour, 53 minutes, 11 seconds.
