BondCast: For Your Ears Only:

Paul McCartney's main theme for "Live and Let Die" has become a staple on Classic Rock radio, but that is just scratching the surface of this amazing 007 soundtrack. With music arranged by the legendary Beatles producer George Martin, the score for "Live and Let Die" provides an amazing atmosphere for Roger Moore's first outing as the world's most famous spy.  Join us as we take you track-by-track through "Live and Let Die".

BondCast: Live and Let Die Part 2

We continue our review of LIVE AND LET DIE with more analysis from the first 007 film of the Roger Moore era. We talk about the lovely Solitaire, Jane Seymour, and how she ranks amongst the best of the Bond girls. Plus, conversation about the evil Kananga, his henchman Whisper, and the goofy Sheriff J.W.Pepper. While LIVE AND LET DIE will never be considered the greatest Bond film of all-time, we find plenty to talk (and laugh) about this time around on BondCast.
