PART TWO OF THE SOUND OF BOND: SOUNDTRACK COVER GALLERY...
Believe it or not, ROGER MOORE is almost three years older than SEAN CONNERY and was 45 when he took over the role of JAMES BOND 007 in LIVE & LET DIE. I find that surprising as Rog could have passed for at least five years younger than his age, whereas, in an interview given in 1971 to promote DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER, big Tam looked at least ten years older than he actually was. Of course, time has levelled the field and they both now look as if they'd blow over in a strong wind, but let's all hope that the two actors have a good many years ahead of them, for all the cinematic enjoyment they've given us over the decades.
Anyway, to Roger goes the honour of being the longest-serving Bond so far, with a whopping seven movies under his belt. Sean also made seven Bond films, but NEVER SAY NEVER AGAIN was a remake of THUNDERBALL, with a twelve year gap between it and his previous outing as 007, and wasn't an 'official' EON production.
So, without further ado, let's take a look at all seven Original Motion Picture Soundtrack album covers from Roger's thirteen year career as BOND... JAMES BOND - shaken, but not stirred. (Just had to get it in somewhere.)
