Retro Vinyl: Ian Fleming's Goldfinger Original Motion Picture Score (1964)

Although the James Bond film franchise kicked off in 1962 with Dr.No it was 1964's third Bond film that undoubtedly became the most iconic.

Starring Sean Connery as 007, Honor Blackman (fresh from her stint as Cathy Gale in The Avengers) and Gert Frobe as Goldfinger, there is much to remember about this exciting film.

This includes the Aston Martin DB5 and an attack on Fort Knox along with a fabulous music score from John Barry featuring a title theme sung by Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley sung by Shirley Bassey.

I actually had this United Artists album on CD some years back and foolishly sold it during a purge, but couldn't resist this vinyl original (ULP1076) when I found it in a Newport car boot sale a few years ago for 50p.

The original mono release its definetely a great piece of 60s pop culture... It was more than worth it for the iconic cover alone!
