Music To Read JAMES BOND By  United Artists (UK)  A compilation of hip, spy movie music by the likes of John Barry, Neil (sic) Hefti, Billy May, Al Caiola, Perez Prado, Riz Ortalani.   Cool instrumentals for those wanting to get into James Bond’s shoes for the night.  Songs to set the mood include: “The Coolest Pad”; “Love Goddess”; “Pin Up Girls”;  “Johnny Cool”; “Goldfinger”; “Scene of the Crime”; etc., etc.  Bachelor Pad meets How to Pick Up Girls with a literary premise.  There are many, many of these spy-themed and James Bond inspired LPs from the sixties and seventies.  There are even two volumes from United Artists with the same title released in the US that have a different track listing.  This is a recent discovery and one of our favs!
