For those who would like to enjoy the new expanded Bond CD's in chronological order, here are the programming instructions for On Her Majesty's Secret Service, Diamonds are Forever and Live and Let Die.

On Her Majesty's Secret Service:
2, 6, 3, 12, 13, 1, 14, 7, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 5, 4, 9, 10, 21, 11, 8

Diamonds Are Forever:
13, 1, 14, 6, 9, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 4, 20, 3, 5, 8, 2, 11, 10, 12, 7, 21

Live and Let Die:
15, 1, 16, 4, 14, 3, 6, 7, 5, 18, 9, 19, 10, 20, 2, 8, 11, 12, 21, 13, 22


I'm told that some cues on LALD were edited together, so the album may not be in total sequence.

Here are my notes on how to edit a chronological album for Thunderball and You Only Live Twice.

Guide to Cutting and Sequencing the expanded Thunderball
by Neil S. Bulk

1. Gunbarrel and Chateau Flight 2:52
"Gunbarrel" comes from the first 21 seconds of track 13.
I then did a fade between "Gunbarrel" and "Chateau Flight".
The final edited cue clocks in at 2:52.

2. Thunderball - Tom Jones 3:03

3. The Spa 2:42

4. Traction Table 1:31
This cue comes right after "Gunbarrel" on track 13.
I faded it in quickly, so as not to lose the sax in the beginning, but to get rid of the fade out of the "Gunbarrel".
I also added some silence at the end of this track.

5. Switching the Body 2:48

6. Gassing the Plane :56
This cue comes right after "Traction Table" on track 13.

7. The Bomb 4:20
This is the second part of track 5, from the 1:23 minute mark until the end.
The first part of the cue will be used later.

8. Car Chase 1:54
This cue comes right after "Gassing the Plane" on track 13.
Most of this cue is unused. Just for fun, watch it with the film playing. It syncs up perfectly. It starts right on the shot of Count Lippe after Blofeld orders his execution.

9. Bond Meets Domino 3:49
This is the first 3:49 of track 14.

10. Thunderball 3:57

11. Cafe Martinique 3:45
On the old CD this cue was mistakenly called "Cape Martinique".

12. Shark Tank :59
This cue comes right after "Bond Meets Domino" on track 14.

13. Bond Below Disco Volante 4:05

14. Search for Vulcan 2:28

15. Lights Out for Paula 1:52
This cue comes right after "Shark Tank" on track 14.

16. For King and Country 1:36
This cue comes right after "Lights Out for Paula" on track 14.

17. Street Chase 3:23

18. Death of Fiona 2:31

19. Finding the Plane / Underwater Ballet 1:51
This cue is the first 1:51 of track 16.

20. Bond with SPECTRE Frogmen 3:34
This cue comes right after "Finding the Plane / Underwater Ballet" on track 16.

21. Leiter to the Rescue 1:37
This cue comes right after "Bond with SPECTRE Frogmen" on track 16.

22. Bond Joins Underwater Battle 4:36
The first 1:23 of this track comes from the first 1:23 of track 5, "The Bomb".
The second part of this cue comes right after "Leiter to the Rescue" on track 16.
I faded out "The Bomb" and mixed in "Bond Joins Underwater Battle" around the 1:21 mark.
The final cue runs 4:36.

23. Underwater Mayhem 5:06
This is the first 5:06 of track 17.

24. Death of Largo 3:00
This cue comes right after "Underwater Mayhem" on track 17.

25. End Titles 2:13
This cue comes right after "Death of Largo" on track 17.

After this, there are various versions of "Mr. Kiss Kiss Bang" that can be included, but I'll warn you, they will not all fit on one CD. I did make a 2 CD set, but I'm not sure I'm entirely happy with it. The new album doesn't have the Dionne Warwick or Shirley Bassey renditions, and I'm not entirely sure that they are really missed. Experiment and have fun.

I would like to thank "GuruKenn" from the alt.fan.james-bond newsgroup for doing the initial editing and cue placement and I'd also like to thank John Cork for the unusually copious chapter stops on the CAV Thunderball deluxe laser disc box set. They both made making this edit of the album very easy.


Guide to Cutting and Sequencing the Complete You Only Live Twice (REVISED 3/1/03)

By Neil S. Bulk


1. Gunbarrel and Capsule in Space 3:04
The “gunbarrel” comes from the first 23 seconds of “James Bond in Japan”.
I cut off the first .414 seconds of “Capsule in Space” to get rid of the silence.
I overlapped “Capsule in Space” onto the “Gunbarrel” at 23.018 seconds, and they segue perfectly into one another.

2. Dead on the Job :57
This cue is from “James Bond in Japan”. It comes right after the “Gunbarrel” at the 23 second mark (23.777 to be precise)
I added about 2 seconds of silence at the end of this track, so the transition to the title song is not as jarring.

3. You Only Live Twice - Title Song 2:45

4. Burial At Sea 2:01
This cue comes right after "Dead on the Job" in the cue, "James Bond in Japan"
It includes an unused section

5. James Bond in Japan 7:20
This is the remainder of the "James Bond in Japan" cue.

6. Aki, Tiger and Osato 5:43

7. A Drop in the Ocean 2:58

8. Fight at Kobe Dock - Helga 4:01

9. Little Nellie 3:45

10. Soviet Capsule 2:05

11. SPECTRE 3:41
This track needs music from "James Bond - Astronaut?"
To assemble this track, the first 1:03 is from this track ("SPECTRE and Village").
Then you must cut out the first 1:41 from "James Bond - Astronaut?" and cut that section onto the tail of the first 1:03 of "SPECTRE and Village".
At the 2:41.951 mark into this combined cue I mixed the next minute of music from "SPECTRE and Village". You will need to fade out this track.
The final track runs 3:41.

12. The Death of Aki 4:19

13. Assassination Attempt :29
This is a very short cue. It comes from the "Village" portion of "SPECTRE and Village".

14. The Wedding 2:45

15. Nightfall
This is the last 1:14 of "SPECTRE and Village".

16. Mountains and Sunsets 3:09

17. James Bond - Ninja 5:23
This is the first 5:21 of this track.
I added about 2 seconds of silence to this track so that the start of the next track isn't jarring.

18. James Bond - Astronaut? 1:48
This is the second half of the cue from 1:41 to 3:29.
The first half of this cue was cut into track 11, "SPECTRE and Village".

19. Countdown for Blofeld 2:37

20. Ninjas 1:28
This runs 1:27 and is the second part of "James Bond - Ninja".
There is a short unused section at the end of this cue, that I have chosen not to include here.

21. Bond Averts World War Three 2:17

22. You Only Live Twice - End Title 3:33

23. Tanaka's World 2:05
This is an unused cue, possibly written just for the album. Lukas Kendall has advised me that this cue was slated as "4M1" and may have been for an early part of the film. I still prefer it here.

24. Twice is the Only Way to Live 2:49

25. You Only Live Twice (Julie Rogers) 3:07
This is the "demo" version of the song from the 30th Anniversary album.

26. You Only Live Twice (radio spot) 1:45
This is the radio ad from the 30th Anniversary album.
It runs 57 seconds. I then have about 30 seconds of silence and then I have the final 17 seconds from "James Bond - Ninja" as a sort of coda at the end of the album.

Have fun making your own album! If you have any suggestions, please let me know.

Ahhh if only the actual CDs had been sequenced like this, or double-CDs had been released - one with the album sequence, the other with the film sequence.... we can always dream I suppose. Bloody programming crap! :-(

Anyone care to tell me the sequence of The Living Daylights?

From the Rykodisc notes:

The Living Daylights:
"13, 1, 3, 6, 2, 7, 14, 5, 4, 15, 16, 17, 10, 18, 9, 11, 19, 20, 12. Tracks 8 and 21 are not heard in the film."

And to quote from Chris Neel's notes from For Your Eyes Only:
Eight tracks on this CD are suites comprised of short cues, so it is a little difficult to program the cues in order of appearance in the film. There are also a couple of cues included in the bonus tracks that were either incorporated into cues that were kept in the film in different arrangements.

So, keeping this in mind, the following sequence is as close to chronological programming as is possible.


For Your Eyes Only:
"13, 1, 4, 7, 5, 2, 14, 11, 15, 8, 3, 16, 10, 9, 17, 18, 19, 6, 12"

For those who would like to enjoy the new expanded Bond CD's in chronological order, here are the programming instructions for On Her Majesty's Secret Service, Diamonds are Forever and Live and Let Die.

My girlfriend had to work suddenly the day You Only Live Twice came out, so I didn't have any plans, so instead I decided to re-edit YOLT. I'm sure that's happened to you....oh wait, maybe not. smile

I have an edited version of Goldfinger that I made last year that I will post the track listing to later today.

So why do you post in this very thread ? I'll tell you : because you have way too much free time on your hands.

I understand now why there are not a lot of Prometheus CDs...

Just ignore him, he's the most fanboyish of the fanboys around here. He's just PO'ed because he didn't think of the idea first; or more likely, he did think of the idea, but you beat him to posting it to the board.

Relax guys, what Ford said was not that big of a deal. He simply stated that it was his opinion of me. I didn't ask for it, but he's allowed to think what ever he wants. It's not a cold hard fact. Now, Ford assembling the Star Wars Trilogy boxed set incorrectly using the wrong takes is a fact. See the difference. smile

Anyway, as promised here are my notes for Goldfinger. Keep in mind that I did this using the old album and not the newest version. I don't know if the differences in timings will be noticeable. My guess is that they won't be.

Guide to Cutting and Sequencing the expanded Goldfinger
by Neil S. Bulk

1. Bond Back in Action Again 2:33

2. Goldfinger - Shirley Bassey 2:48

3. Into Miami :56
This is the first :56 seconds of the track "Into Miami - Alpine Drive - Auric's Factory".

4. Golden Girl 2:08

5. Alpine Drive - Auric's Factory 4:28
This is the remaining 4:28 of the track.

6. Death of Tilley 2:02

7. The Laser Beam 2:52

8. Pussy Galore's Flying Circus 2:45

9. Teasing the Korean 2:17

10. Gassing the Gangsters 1:05

11. Oddjob's Pressing Engagement 3:09

12. Dawn Raid on Fort Knox 5:50

13. The Arrival of the Bomb and Count Down 3:31

14. The Death of Goldfinger 2:32

15. Goldfinger (instrumental version) 2:09

16. Goldfinger - Anthony Newley 2:51
This version can be found on the 30th anniversary album.

This is a very easy album to make. Have fun!

Hi everyone, a first post here...

Though I don't have the expanded YOLT yet (just waiting for the European release), regarding "Spectre and Village", from the review at JohnBarry.org.uk it seems clear that it includes both the ninja assassin sequence and Tanaka's anouncement of the new launch date - i. e. one portion of this track should be sequenced between "The Death of Aki" and "The Wedding" and the final part should be placed between "The Wedding" and "Mountains and Sunsets".

Good catch. I'll have to re-edit it.

I now have my 3 “must haves” from this recent dropping from Remastered Heaven:
On Her Majesty's Secret Service, Thunderball and You Only Live Twice.
OHMSS was my big wish in this whole wave of releases and I am so grateful to all involved in this project. Now I think, we all will be re-evaluating our favorite cues, because these CDs are just so incredible. I think Thunderball surprised me the most. It’s now has everything that was lacking in the original release – the second half of the film soundtrack.

I purchased all of these Bond LPs when they first arrived shortly after the film’s releases in the 60’s and 70’s. You just couldn’t keep the records clean enough, so it was “rain-on-the-roof” and Bond. Now we have Barry’s real soundtracks without tires screeching, bullets flying, bubbles blowing or worst of all - turntables.

My sincerest appreciation to all involved in these incredible remasters.
