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 be-
tween it and his previous outing as 007, and wasn't an 'official'
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.)
