The “Live And Let Die” Soundtrack marked several musical firsts: it was the first James Bond soundtrack that did not involve John Barry, it was the first time a rock song was used as a Bond theme and it was Paul McCartney’s first post-Beatles reunion with producer George Martin. The title track has become one of McCartney’s biggest hit singles: “Live And Let Die” was nominated in 1974 for an Academy Award for Best Original Song, it sold over a million copies and peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100.

The first James Bond movie – apart from the “off-brand” spoof Casino Royale – not to be scored by John Barry (who was working on a stage musical at the time), Live and Let Die’s soundtrack still managed to be a pop-music recording event, by virtue of the presence of Paul McCartney & Wings doing the title song. The latter, a Number Two hit in England and a Number Nine single in America, also reunited McCartney and Beatles’ producer George Martin, who provides the background score for the film in Barry’s absence. Martin is no more than an adequate substitute for Barry – his music is pleasant and diverting, but largely undistinguished and unmemorable; indeed, “Fillet of Soul – New Orleans”/”Live and Let Die” as done by B.J. Arnau is far more interesting that any of the instrumental material by Martin, which lacks any distinguishing features to hold the attention of the audience. The best track here is “If He Finds It, Kill Him,” which incorporates elements of Monty Norman’s original “James Bond Theme.” Also included was one of the series’ periodic reworkings of Norman’s music, which is noisier but not especially improved over the Dr. No album’s original.
