James Bond On Her Majesty's Secret Service: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Limited Edition 180g Vinyl LP
The soundtrack for the 1969 James Bond film, starring George Lazenby as 007, features music composed by John Barry. Since the title of previous James Bond films were included in the lyrics of the theme songs, this proved to be a challenge with On Her Majesty's Secret Service so this would be the first in the series since "From Russia With Love" to deviate from convention.
Therefore, this 1969 film contains an instrumental theme song in the tradition of the first two Bond films. The soundtrack includes the Barry composed "We Have All the Time In the World" as sung by Louis Armstrong, which would be his last recorded song. The song's lyrics were provided by Hal David.
On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969) is the sixth spy film in the James Bond series, based on the 1963 novel of the same name by Ian Fleming. In the film Bond faces Blofeld (Telly Savalas), who is planning to sterilize the world's food supply through a group of brainwashed "angels of death" (which included early appearances by Joanna Lumley and Catherina von Schell), unless his demands are met for an international amnesty for his previous crimes, recognition of his title as the Count De Bleuchamp (the French form of Blofeld) and to be allowed to retire into private life. Along the way Bond meets, falls in love with, and eventually marries Contessa Teresa di Vicenzo (Diana Rigg).
"John Barry's best score for any James Bond movie -- including the best song ("We Have All the Time in the World") ever written for any movie in the series..." -Bruce Eder, allmusic.com
