Reblogged: Oscars 2013 – James Bond’s not-so-secret life on the charts
Randy Lewis, writing for the L.A. Times, in prep for “… the motion picture academy’s salute to James Bond coming up at the Oscars on Sunday“, amassed some really cool factoids about the OO7 films and the music that has been so part and parcel of this series. A good example:
“005: The bestselling Bond album is “The Best of Bond: James Bond” soundtrack compilation, which has sold 453,000 copies combined through four editions released in 1999, 2002, 2008 and 2012. Among individual titles, 1997’s “Tomorrow Never Dies” album is tops with 117,000 copies sold.”
Definitely worth checking out for Bond and music fans:
