At the Westminster Film Fair , this weekend (see separate post for what DVD's I picked up cool.gif - there was a guy with a CD stall offering both versions of Slalom (though @ £25.00 for the Japanese version , thought that was a bit steep ! ohmy.gif - also had Du Contro Goldginger and Masterstroke - which I would've bought , except this was being saved for somebody sad.gif -

However there is a Fair at Camden's Electric Ballroom in October - which I think this guy may be at , so If I can, I'll get along there wink.gif

After the dry spell...when it rains it pours!

Just released from Film Score Monthly is..."The Liquidator"!!!!! I couldn't believe it! And not just the original LP music (which is on there), but also the actual film cues from the film! Only 1000 copies so get your orders in. It's one of my faves.

Then...an album called the "James Bond Songbook" just came out on CD. It is a batch of cover versions done by west coast Jazzmen in the 60's. The Bond Theme, FRWL, G-finger, are the tunes you're familiar with, but the others were written before there were films to go with them and are original tunes. Great Jazzy stuff.

You already know about OSS-117 Nest of Spies and of course Casino Royale is out in the next couple of weeks. I'm a little apprehensive about this because apparently the Bond theme isn't used till the very end because it's supposed to be the beginning of bond (before he died his hair black?). What can a Bond score be like without actual Bond music? (NSNA?)

One last cover LP is rumored to be released on CD. The Red Guest Syndicate (who?) released a so-so batch of cover versions back in the 60s called "Underworld" that should be out in November.

Wow! FSM's putting out The Liquidator?!? That's GREAT news! Thanks for the heads-up, Spy Bop! Now if only they'd follow that up with Murderers' Row...

Just got my copy of Liquidator through. Once you seperate the underscore from the spy motif moments, you've got a fine spy music cd. (Ok it's more the American / British tradition rather than French / Italian in the Eurospy stakes) As a peek in between MAN FROM UNCLE & MISSION IMPOSSIBLE this is essential. There are half a dozen drop dead spy cues. (The Killer, Boysie's Bossa (not the LP version) and carry on come to mind) If only we could get those Italians at CAM records to sell CDRs of their vaults of priceless eurospy we would happy happy bunnies.In fact I sent them an email yesterday begging for reissues of their holy grail spy recordings - see Italian soundtracks website for goodies to drool over. The crazy guv' of the site is offering 1500 euros for some of those ultra rare titles! (Like Operazione Atlantis)

Here's what they said (rather tantilisingly) - my email to them below:



Dear Mr. Rhys Davies,
Thank you for your enquiry and for your great enthusiasm for this genre.
Unfortunately, we no longer have LPs. And, we agree that those prices are "insane" !
As regards re-issuing these soundtracks on CD, at this time it is not in our immediate plans.
However, it is not impossible that sometime in the future these scores will be available again.
Any news on potential releases will be posted on our website.

Sincerely,

The CAM Original Soundtracks Team

Oggetto: THE GREAT LOST SPY SOUNDTRACKS

Hi

I love spy film music and you have some great spionaggio soundtracks in your vault from the 60's.



I have paid 170 euros for the wonderfull New York Chiama Superdrago.



I would like to get my hands on the others like Sinfonia per due spie, Baleari operazione oro and Muori lentamente ... te la godi di piú.



I have been searching the net and I have no hope - you probably know the Italian Soundtracks website. The guy who runs it is offering 1500 euros for two of the super rare spy cam soundtracks - Le spie uccidono a Beirut Cam CDR. 33-6 Carlo Savina Agente S03 Operazione Atlantide Cam CDR. 33-10 Teo Usuelli.



This is insane money - i could never afford.



Will you please please please reissue the great lost spy soundtracks??



Do you have any plans? Or is there a policy for these to be kept for the privilaged?? Perhaps a small run of CD-R's?



I do hope to hear from you,


Best
Richard Rhys Davies

This one kind of snuck up on me, but right on the heels of their "Liquidator" release, Film Score Monthly is releasing "The Spy With My Face"! This is another two CD set of music from The Man From U.N.C.L.E TV show. This set is going to be music from the U.N.C.L.E. movies (that were really just pasted together TV shows).

By the Way...Is "That Man From Rio" a spy flick or a heist film? (That soundtrack is out as well.

I reckon L'homme de Rio is a spy film although it strictly isn't. Belmondo is really an adventurer in love busting through the airport in Rio to recapture his kidnapped girl. BUT the film would not exist without Bond and is rich in spy stylings - and is a good film too.

Spy is such a shadowy genre (approprately) with so many half truths, half spies and cross genre entries. This question seems eternal to me with all the fumetti, caper, espionage, cold war political, hitman movies - what is spy?

In many a hitman movie an assassination is a key plot point but the instigator of the crime presumably defines if it's spy or not. Mafia would make it a crime film (The Mechanic), government agency would make it spy (La Femme Nikita) - right??

In some films its never revealled who set up the kill (The Outside Man or the British Eyewitness).

Interesting point Richard.The Assassin is always a blurry area. Would you consider the recent Pierce Brosnan flick The Matador a spy film or is it a crime film? And I often ponder whether the Japanese Golgo 13 movies are crime films or spy films...as you say, I suppose on who is employing him/them?

And heading back to the thread about L'Homme De Rio: it was shown here on terrestrial TV a few years ago, and the presenter said (and I paraphrase a best), that the film was intended to be a hommage to the Tin Tin adventures. I must admit I don't quite see it.

But it was released in 1963, so the Bond influence (although undoutable) probably hadn't built up the momentum in Europe that it ultimately would with the release of Goldfinger.

But all this has very little to do with Eurospy soundtracks, so in a clumsy attempt to make this posting relevant, I'll mention that I picked up the David Arnold soundtrack to Casino Royale. It is quite okay, but I feel I have been there before with this soundtrack. And even though the title song is not on the album (which, let's be honest sells half of the soundtrack albums out there - good bad or indifferent), the album still has no hooks to really pull you in.

Obviously musical tastes are a subjective thing, but I have enjoyed Arnolds last 3 Bond soundtracks. I enjoyed Tommorow Never Dies, and for me the hook was the 'Surrender' song by kd lang, and the continuing motifs throughout the score (I am sure it was some petty marketing thing in the Bond camp that allowed Sheryll Crows title song to be used at the top, and lang's relegated to the end titles).

The follow up The World Is Not Enough was pretty good too (didn't think much of 'Garbages' song - but as I said it's subjective). This album introduced us to the choral singing in the background of the score.

Okay, now we're at Die Another Day. Madonna aside, the Cuban stuff was quite good (although not enough on the album).

But for Casino Royale there is no hook. It's sorta like 'I have a perfectly good David Arnold Bond Soundtrack - why do I need another one?'

It's probably a good soundtrack...but I feel I/we may have heard it all before?

cheers
D.

Screen Archives is offering a Jerry Goldsmith soundtrack compilation CD which features tunes from the obscure Eurospy entry: THE SCORPIO LETTERS.

Avanz.tv has updated their site and it's much easier to figure out now. Anyway, they've released the Ennio Moriccone score to "Matchless". A limited collector's release. 500 or 1000 or something. They have a few eurospyDVD's as well.
