All I Need to Please Me

Advantages: Remixed, Remastered and Extended
Disadvantages: Import only at present

When 'Diamonds' first appeared as a soundtrack album it was a threadbare affair, rushed into release before John Barry had even completed the score. In their bid to capitalise on the pre-release frenzy of Connery's return to the 007 fold, the marketing bo ...

Vietnam meets Wagner

Advantages: Great choice of tracks to accompany the film
Disadvantages: No Beatles (revoution/helter skelter etc!!)

Don't be fooled. This is music is of a very high quality.

Advantages: High quality vocals from John Travolta, Olivia Newton- John and Frankie Valli.
Disadvantages: Its a great album but you may have to hide it from your friends!!
