It’s been a six year wait for a new James Bond movie. So was it worth the wait? The team at the On Her Majesty’s Secret Podcast network have now all seen No Time To Die (some of us multiple times). So what did we think? We have recorded a short series of initial reaction podcasts that you can find here:
Alan takes a trip down memory lane, while Jarrod is left to wonder why his CD collection of alternate Bond themes is incomplete in the latest edition of the Bond Music: Six of the Best podcast. In our continuing look at various spin-off alternate Bond albums we take a look at 1975’s Big Bond Themes from Geoff Love and his Orchestra, where we discuss not only the music, but why there are two different album sleeves.
On the latest of the Bond Music: Six of the Best podcast episode, Jarrod and Alan continue their investigation of various Bond related “spinoff” albums with BOND BEAT & BASS. The subtitle “The Elektronika James Bond Themes” gives a hint of what we can expect. Just how cruel has Jarrod been making Alan listen to this and will he begin to appreciate this sort of music?
How will the OHMS Podcast Rogue Agents crew react to their first encounter with the singular swing sixties experience that is the 1967 production of Casino Royale?
Just how many 007s will it take for them to understand what they just watched? Tune in here and find out.
As we have now covered all the movie soundtracks to date we thought it might be fun to branch out with our Bond music podcast series and take a look at some of the “spin-off” albums out there. Alan had the lead for the first in this new series and picked David Arnold’s Shaken & Stirred project.
You can check out our discussion of the album and, as usual, or six track picks by tuning in here.
Jarrod and Alan wrap up their look back at the various Bond movie soundtracks with a look at Thomas Newman’s second Bond score, SPECTRE. In this episode you’ll find out just how Jarrod and Alan are related, where Alan left his socks, and more as we drill into our top picks. We also discuss just how The Writing’s On The Wall is connected to the Goldfinger theme song.
Alan and Jarrod revisit the Bond soundtracks as we discuss the work of the ninth Bond composer, Thomas Newman, and Adele’s award-winning theme song. Join us for another fun discussion on the music of Bond. Tune in here.
In the latest episode of the Bond Music: Six of the Best series Jarrod and Alan infiltrate a secret meeting at the opera to discuss the soundtrack from QUANTUM OF SOLACE (or is that “Something of Boris”?) – Does David Arnold depart on a high note? Will there be a new record for shortest track? Will Alan get out of the boot? — Tune in & find out!
In the latest Bond Music; Six of the Best episode we move on to the Daniel Craig era as Jarrod and Alan discuss David Arnold’s score for CASINO ROYALE. David Arnold slows things down for a this reboot of the franchise. Is it too slow? Does it need more Barry? Is it just Barry enough? — Tune in & find out!
