BondCast: James Bond 007

Laird is back to take us through the soundtrack to NEVER SAY NEVER AGAIN. This non-EON Productions film features some music similar to your typical 007 soundtrack, and some vastly different. You won't find any twangy surf guitar music here! But does that help or hurt? You can decide for yourself as we present our review of composer Michael Legrand's Never Say Never Again soundtrack.

Roger Moore is back for more as the Cold War reigns and the Russians are up to some specious activitiy involving a Fabrege Egg. We discuss Roger's continuing involvement with the franchise, as well as the plot, the women, the gadgets, and the laughs.
