James Bond is the title of various compilation albums of music used in the James Bond films made by Eon Productions up to that time. The single disc compilation was later updated four times in 1999, 2002, 2008, and 2012
The compilation The Best of James Bond was initially released for the 30th anniversary of the film franchise in 1992, and featured many of the songs that later pressings contained. As this compilation was a few years before GoldenEye was released, it did not contain the track. The initial release was a two disc set. The compilation was re-released in 1993 as a one disc set, once again being released as a 30th anniversary collection. In 1999 the compilation was updated and re-released to strong sales

For the James Bond enthusiast spirit in many of us I suppose it is still better than nothing at all for the 50th Anniversary. The Laser Beam" from GOLDFINGER, "Switching The Body" from THUNDERBALL, "Snow Job" from A VIEW TO A KILL and "Vesper" from CASINO ROYALE are excellent cuts. However, this collection remains a curiosity piece and perfunctory at best. The album is only missing the theme songs from the two newest Bond films: Skyfall and Spectre, which can be easily purchased individually.
The first is the original version of "Goldfinger" sung by Anthony Newley who also wrote the song in collaboration with the film's composer, John Barry. Newley's jazz version was, however, replaced by Shirley Bassey's version in 1964 for the film and for release on the album. Newley's version was first released with the 30th Anniversary Collection. The second rare addition is Shirley Bassey's version of "Mr. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" for Thunderball.
