It is of course the film that saw Sean Connery as the spy once again, Honor Blackman as the »purrfect« bond girl Pussy Galore, the immortal »Odd Job« and that famous gold-skinned beauty on the bed… The soundtrack of course featured the first of Barry’s original songs for the series – penned with lyricists Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley – and the first of three to be performed by Shirley Bassey. The immortal »Goldfinger« is presented here in languid orchestral form, conducted by John Barry himself.
