MI6 Confidential #66: Musical Notes

Issue #66 of the full-colour James Bond magazine MI6 Confidential is now shipping worldwide.

 Fleming’s writing captures the sights, and sounds, of Bond’s surroundings in his distinctive journalistic style. The films are alive and rich with the sounds of 007’s locations. Barry’s scores for the Bond films set a template, not just for the franchise, but for movie music writ large. Then, before you slip into any of Bond’s globetrotting adventures, Maurice Binder’s or Daniel Kleinman’s titles accompany the big vocal hit that is truly of its musical era.

If you like MI6 Confidential then you might want to subscribe to the entire season for best price and priority shipping.
