Over the holiday season we decided to do something a bit different for our Bond Music: Six of the Best Episode. Instead of two people picking six tracks from one album – how about four people picked eight tracks from an album that consisted of four discs? Surely the “ultimate” episode.
The album in question was the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra‘s excellent “The Ultimate James Bond Music Collection” box set. To tackle this extensive retrospective of 007 music Alan and Jarrod were joined by guests Luis Pachon and Matt Raubenheimer.
You can check out which tracks we each selected right HERE.
In the latest episode of the James Bond: Six of the Best podcast, Jarrod and Alan discuss what they listen to when reading Bond stories as we dive into the two-volume “Music To Read James Bond To” vinyl album series from 1965 and 1966. Does one album score over the other, and just what is the Bond connection with some of the track titles? You can follow the discussion, and listen to our track picks HERE.

This month Jarrod and Alan broaden their Bond-related listening as they tackle one of the best spy music compilations, Come Spy With Us: The Secret Agent Songbook.

So tune in and find out just how much Jarrod knows about Danger Man and Alan’s sudden revelation about the lyrics to The Silencer.
Jarrod mixes things up as his pick for the latest episode of the Bond Music: Six of the Best podcast only has three tracks – and they are all the same tune. How will Alan react to having to listen to three different versions of the James Bond Theme, and what movies do the boys think would match these interpretations. You can find out HERE.
