This Never Happened to the Other Fella ... err, Fellow! ... err, Feller!

"Fella" is colloquial English ... very common (language and usage) at the time ... though JB007 should, of course, be above such things ... and speak The Queen's English.

Perhaps Mr. Barry was showing his "Northern" roots ...

... this Midlander exits right ... smile

After living with this score for 43 years and seeing LP and CD releases come and go without addressing this bizarre error, I finally went into iTunes and changed Mojave Club to Mojaba Club. My work here is done.

Roger,

Perhaps I am wrong here, but the part in the film where Roger Moore reads Aziz Fekkesh's notebook has the name spelled with a "U" as in Mujaba Club.

I'm surprised no one's mentioned "Gonzales Takes a Drive", as in "Gonzales Takes a Dive"

It appears someone did ... two days ago.

The official cue sheet lists it as "Mojave Club" and a slightly later cue as "Eastern Lights with Under Mojave." So the misspelling likely originated there, rather than with the LP.

That's consistent with my intricate theory that it was Marvin Hamlisch who made the mistake. Or if he was just calling everything by those Mxx reel numbers, then he still must have signed off on the LP track listing. Either way, "Mojave Club" is the composer's title for the cue, and in that sense it is correct. I'm not changing it in my music files.

My UK LP of The Spy Who Loved Me label lists Paul Buckmaster as composer of the track The Tanker while later releases on CD don't. I think Buckmaster was involved on Eastern Lights and Mojave Club. The soundtrack is badly in need of the original session recordings.

Which is funny because those are my favorite tracks, especially all the music around the Pyramids.

Does this scene even make any sense? I get that Bond sees Tracey on the beach, alone. Then he goes to rescue her. All of a sudden out of no where these thugs appear and start beating Bond up, for reasons not entirely clear.

I always assumed they were opportunistic robbers/muggers, perhaps smugglers... it's a Portuguese beach... however they could just be her father's men, following her...

Re: the OHMSS teaser scene, could they be her father's enemies, out to kidnap her? Because they do put a knife to her throat at one point. The key would be to watch the film again, remember their faces, and see if they show up later among her father's henchmen.

Nope, they are definitely Draco's men, clearly following her on Draco's orders, either to protect her or bring her in. Putting the knife to her throat to stop her running off suggests the latter.

They clearly attack Bond because they see him moving in first.

I know they don't explain it all up front, but the film really isn't that hard to read.

It becomes really clear as the next few scenes unfold.

The thug in Tracey's bedroom, who backs off when he realises Bond's intentions towards Tracy are romantic.

The fact it's clearly some of the same men who grab Bond the next day and take him to Draco.

The fact someone told Draco about everything Bond has done for his daughter. (The thug from the bedroom.)

The fact that the main thug on the beach is also part of Draco's assault team on Piz Gloria.

It's not disguised.

Cheers

So they see Bond rescue Tracey and are going to kill him for doing so? Nice reward.

It made for a hell of a great fight scene. Although Lazenby doesn't have a variety of moves his haymakers are killer. Some of the most energetic fights of the series are in this film.

You are correct. The cue sheet lists Buckmaster as composer of "Mojave Club", "Eastern Lights" and "Eastern Lights with Under Mojave." Hamlisch is credited as the composer of "The Tanker."

Thanks for clearing that up Jameson.
