50TH! A JAMES BOND 007 SOUNDTRACK LP: HOT! 1967

March 7th, 2017


‘CASINO ROYALE’ SCORE * Burt Bacharach * 1967 LP (COMPLETE ALBUM)

A WORD ON THIS ALBUM

This “Casino Royale’ soundtrack album was embraced universally by audio purists, as, ‘par excellence,’ when it was first released in 1967. The album is still much sought after today. Not only for its rare vinyl availability, but more so, it was noted for its applied advanced recordings at the time, heard defined in every single musical note, in each track in the score. To some music critics, still today, the soundtrack is regarded as one of the finest-sounding albums of all-time. Unfortunately, the original “Casino Royale’ master tapes was damaged as the album was in the process of being re-mastered in the 1990s.

Motor City Radio Flashbacks presents the original vinyl LP version in its entirety here.
