La-La Land Records, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, EON Productions and Universal Music Enterprises proudly commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the 1973 James Bond film LIVE AND LET DIE, with a remastered and expanded 2-CD re-issue of composer George Martin's original motion picture score to the film, starring Roger Moore in his debut portrayal of 007 and directed by Guy Hamilton.
A new Bond demanded a fresh take on the film's score and its title song - and famed composer and Beatles producer George Martin and former Beatle himself Paul McCartney more than succeed in this challenging mission, resulting in a film score and title track that, fifty years later, still resonates with Bond buffs and popular-music fans alike! LIVE AND LET DIE – 50th ANNIVERSARY EXPANDED LIMITED EDITION showcases the film's iconic music in exhilarating fashion, with improved sound and never-before-released material.
Produced by Neil S. Bulk, Disc One of this release showcases the Score Presentation, while a remaster of the original 1973 soundtrack album is housed on Disc Two, along with additional music tracks! The film score and original soundtrack album have been remixed from original 16-track masters by Chris Malone and mastered by Doug Schwartz in high resolution. (Please note only the score has been remixed – the McCartney song, the "Fillet Of Soul" tracks and "Just A Closer Walk With Thee/New Second Line" are all sourced from the original album masters.)
This special release is limited to 5000 units and features exclusive, in-depth liner notes by "The Music of James Bond" author Jon Burlingame and sharp art design by Dan Goldwasser.
