"When it comes to writing about film music, Jon Burlingame is the man with the Midas touch. Both casual fans and 007 aficionados should find this book to be enlightening, informative, and great fun to read." --Leonard Maltin"Jon Burlingame has written an amazing behind-the-scenes dossier, revealing the personalities, the betrayals, the egos, the lawsuits, and the untold stories behind 007's hits and misses. Nobody does it better than Bond, and nobody knows Bond music better than Burlingame." --John Cork, co-author, James Bond, The Legacy"A magnificent work. Not only has Mr. Burlingame assembled a meticulously researched history of the James Bond music, but, being an expert on musical scoring and composers, he offers a degree of music appreciation and insight that few possess. James Bond fans will devour this like Beluga caviar and Dom Perignon champagne." --Steven Jay Rubin, author of The Complete James Bond Movie Encyclopedia"Jon Burlingame provides the intriguing and often fascinating story behind the one heretofore neglected aspect of the James Bond phenomenon: the soundtracks and the incredibly talented people behind them. The Music of James Bond manages to be exhaustively researched, yet highly entertaining. Those of us who pride ourselves on being 007 scholars will be humbled by the wealth of new insights the author reveals. With this indispensable book, Burlingame reaffirms his status as one of the world's foremost experts on motion picture soundtracks." --Lee Pfeiffer, co-author, The Incredible World of007 and The Essential Bond, and Editor-in-Chief, Cinema Retro Magazine"Jon Burlingame has crafted an authoritative and uniquely informative volume--the definitive examination of a major contribution in the longevity of the James Bond film series. The Music of James Bond is packed with memorable quotes and a sprinkling of photographic gems." --Graham Rye, Editor & Publisher, 007 MAGAZINE"At last, a worthy historical analysis of 007 that finally puts the music in the spotlight; often neglected and overlooked, John Barry's distinctive sound played a pivotal part in defining James Bond's screen persona. Jon Burlingame's incredibly detailed account successfully threads together the full story, and in doing so, reveals more twists and turns than an Ian Fleming novel. --Geoff Leonard and Pete Walker, co-authors, John Barry: The Man With the Midas Touch"The Bond films bounce from one locale and storyline to another, with the music serving as our constant frame of reference. And so it probably deserves a biography unto itself: a snappy, efficient and gossip-heavy one such as THE MUSIC OF JAMES BOND by Jon Burlingame." -- Colin Fleming, TheWashington Post"The tunes and scores that have graced the 007 franchise finally get their due in this exhaustively researched and consistently fascinating chronicle." -- Neil Smith, Total Film"THE MUSIC OF JAMES BOND is an immensely readable and satisfyingly comprehensive study of an overlooked aspect to the Bond films' success. I couldn't put it down." -- Neil Shurley, "[A] thorough and engaging account of the composers, singers, and lyricists who have contributed the stylistically eclectic scores and title songs for James Bond films over the past fifty years... For connoisseurs of Bond films and their scores, The Music of James Bond will likely become an indispensable part of their collection."-- Journal of the Society for American Music

Liest sich gut, bietet aber leider zu wenig wirklich Neues - obwohl es eigentlich erst das zweite Buch über die James Bond Soundtracks ist. Je neuer der Film, desto kürzer sind die Artikel - und auf wirklich Unbekanntes stößt man selten. Auch vermisst man etwas Kritik oder ein paar Anmerkungen, was man hätte besser machen können - schließlich ist nicht alles gelungen, was uns die Bond-Komponisten in den letzten 50 Jahren vorgesetzt haben. Wer weiß - vielleicht hätte der Autor auch die Musik von SKYFALL - die im Buch noch nicht behandelt wird - gelobt: und das wäre absolut verfehlt gewesen, denn das ist die erste Bond-Musik, die ich mich nach knapp 40 Jahren Sammelleidenschaft weder auf LP noch CD noch Remaster-CD zugelegt habe.

The Ultimate Guide to the Music of James Bond 22. Oktober 2012
Von Geoff Leonard - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
If I'd wanted to choose the ideal person to write a book on the music of James Bond, Jon Burlingame would have been top of the list by a long way. And he doesn't disappoint in this fascinating book, every chapter of which contains the real story of the music, exposing the myths and rumours along the way.

With reader-friendly score highlights for each film, plus many seldom seen before photos of the men and women behind the music, this is a book I would recommend to anybody with an interest in the history of popular music over the last fifty years. If you also like James Bond or film music in general, your ship has really come in!!

Immensely readable and satisfyingly comprehensive 19. Oktober 2012
Von Neil Shurley - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
"The Bond 'sound' was an accident," writes Jon Burlingame in his new book, The Music of James Bond. But that brassy, jazz/rock/swing palette - what composer David Arnold describes as "cocky, swaggering, confident, dark and dangerous" - became more than just the instantly identifiable sound of agent 007. As Burlingame writes, it became "the de facto sound of international espionage on screen."

More than just the sensational theme songs that themselves became cultural benchmarks, the music of the Bond films - especially those early Sean Connery efforts - set a standard that created a whole new genre. In 'The Music of James Bond,' leading film music journalist Jon Burlingame examines and contextualizes that music, covering the franchise's fifty year history (through 2009's Quantum of Solace).

The chapters - one on each of the 24 Bond films (including the two produced outside of the "official" canon) - cover the history, cultural context and reception of each film's music, along with an in-depth look at highlights from each score. Burlingame relies on extensive research as well as new interviews with key players, including Monty Norman, John Barry, George Martin, and David Arnold. These often provide more than just commentary, often revealing deep insight and reflection on the composers' work, as well as a look into the often hidden struggles each composer faced while trying to create the score.

The chapters on the Brosnan-era films, in particular, highlight the conflicts between the films' producers and the individual composers that marked the rise of the "music supervisor." A conversation with Goldeneye composer Eric Serra, for instance, brings us the heartbreaking revelation that the composer felt that his music - still controversial in fan circles - was practically lost in the mix. "Music was not a priority at all," he tells Burlingame. "For me it was a disaster; what you could hear did not make sense."

These kinds of details make the book invaluable not only to film score fans and Bond film aficionados but to film scholars in general. For the Bond films, taken as a whole, reflect the changes in the surrounding culture and in the business of filmmaking, and the music for these films provides a perfect snapshot of one aspect of that change. It's a terrific case study that should prove useful to both the armchair critic and the serious film student.

The Music of James Bond is an immensely readable and satisfyingly comprehensive study of an overlooked aspect to the Bond films' success. I couldn't put it down.

A Must-Have for Bond Fans and Soundtrack Collectors 17. Oktober 2012
Von Lee Goldberg - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
The book is terrific, but I wouldn't expect any less from the author of TV's Biggest Hits: The Story of Television Themes from Dragnet to Friends This book charts the evolution of every Bond score in a lively, breezily-written narrative that is as entertaining as it is informative. Everything you ever wanted to know about the scores, themes, and business behind the Bond music is here. Even if you aren't a Bond fan, this book is a revealing look at the business, marketing, and creative influences on how movie scores assigned and produced. It's a must-have reference and historical book for all Bond fans and soundtrack collectors that will have you listening to all the Bond albums again and searching YouTube and iTunes to listen to the many rejected theme songs. I thoroughly enjoyed the book, learned a lot, and hope that Jon will be updating it every few years...though I am still waiting for the sequel/update to TV's Biggest Hits!

A Great Book for the Bond Completist 9. Dezember 2012
Von Gary P. Cohen - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
One of the best things about this James Bond 50th. anniversary year is the plethora of books that have been published on the Bond films. This is certainly one of the most unusual: an entire book dedicated to the music of the James Bond films.
As one who has been a fan of the series since Dr. No's release in 1963, I used to enjoy buying each Bond soundtrack and listen to them over and over on my little phonograph. It is so much fun now to read how they were created.
Each chapter concerns a different Bond film from Dr. No to the present. We learn briefly about the plot of each film. We also learn about the various composers, the singers of each Bond film, how they were written, etc. They are usually accompanied by a black and white photo from the film and one of the composer, singer, etc. The most unusual part is that the writer has a picture of the soundtrack and describes the the music on the soundtrack cut by cut including how long into the film each cut takes place. As one who has listened to the Bond soundtracks from Dr. No to the Living Daylights numerous times, I could hear the music in my head while reading about each cut. I really have not enjoyed a Bond soundtrack since John Barry's last: The Living Daylights. The last one I purchased was Casino Royale. Not only do I not enjoy the Bond music to the extent that I used to but the latest phenomenon of not having the theme song on the album is also annoying. (Although leaving out the dreadful theme music of Quantum of Solace is no great loss.) This continues to this day with Adele's theme song not being on the Skyfall soundtrack.
You will learn so many things about the Bond music including the controversy about who really wrote the James Bond theme.
This book may not be for the casual fan but for the real Bond fan who has enjoyed so many of the great soundtracks by John Barry and others or has enjoyed so many of the great Bond songs like "Goldfinger," "You Only Live Twice," "We Have All the Time in the World," "The Look of Love," (the only good thing about the horrendous 1967 "Casino Royale" fiasco,) "Live and Let Die," "Nobody Does It Better," "For Your Eyes Only," etc. etc. If you have any interest at all on the subject, you will greatly enjoy this fascinating book.

Will Make You See the Movies in a Whole Different Way 10. November 2012
Von Man of La Book - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The Music of James Bond by Jon Burlingame is a non-fiction book about the sound­track of one of the most suc­cess­ful film fran­chises in the world. Coin­ci­den­tally, after fin­ish­ing the chap­ter about the music of From Russ­ian with Love, I flipped on the TV and the movie was on, I can give a first hand tes­ti­mony that this book gave me a whole dif­fer­ent view of the Bond movies (and I have seen each sev­eral times).

The book cov­ers the topic of the James Bond movies from the per­spec­tive of the musi­cal score. Each movie gets a chap­ter with a nar­ra­tive of how the score came to be as well as an out­line of the movie (spoiler alert if you haven't seen them) and where each part of the score plays a role.

The Music of James Bond by Jon Burlingame tells of the real-life dra­mas which accom­pa­nied the sound track to the 007 movies up to Quan­tum of Solace. Mr. Burlingame takes the reader behind the scenes to closed ses­sions, pri­vate nego­ti­a­tions and con­fi­den­tial conversations.

The author does an excel­lent job dis­cussing each movie and how the sound­track got cre­ated as well as changed with the times. As a fan of the movies (I've seen each sev­eral times), I knew exactly what he was talk­ing about and could hear the music in my head.

My favorite part of the book came at the begin­ning by learn­ing how the famous "James Bond Theme" came to be and, of course, learn more about the famous John Barry who scored many of the Bond movies whose dis­tinct sound is rec­og­niz­able almost everywhere.

Spe­cial atten­tion was given to the chang­ing tech­nol­ogy in music, where big bands were replaced, or com­ple­mented, by syn­the­siz­ers and the sound of the early movies was slowly replaced by disco and mod­ern sounds.

My only wish is that this book would have been an enhanced e-book, this is the exact type of book which would ben­e­fit from such for­mat. Imag­ine being able to watch a par­tic­u­lar scene, or lis­ten to a par­tic­u­lar track after hav­ing read about it and with an under­stand­ing of what your are watch­ing and lis­ten­ing to.

As always, the real magic of the book is the behind-the-scenes anec­dotes and con­tro­ver­sies regard­ing the sound­tracks, own­er­ship and rein­ven­tion of the Bond sound by David Arnold. Com­ple­mented with inter­views of com­posers and artists, untold sto­ries (Eric Clapton's gui­tar work for "License to Kill" was shelved, Jimmy Page played on the "Goldfin­ger" track and more) this book is a must for Bond fans and music lovers.
