I haven't bothered with NTTD, nothing there to inspire really. While I did make the volcano version of YOLT a much better one was done by JGouse0498 which he posted a year or two back.

LOL...I completely forgot I used the volcano art for my version! While I humbly thank you for the compliment, I have to say that your version(s) have a much more era-appropriate feel to them and your layouts complement the original art better. They just feel like they're from the 1960s-1980s.


NO TIME TO DIE - Anything you can come up with. I didn't care for the official cover art for the soundtrack and always prefer illustrated cover art for Bond films. Have you seen the vintage poster that is being sold online at Etsy. It reminds me slightly of the original poster for OCTOPUSSY.

As for No Time to Die, I agree that the official art isn't that great. It's definitely better than the art on the 4K UHD Steelbook though--that's for certain! What I ended up doing for my custom art was using a high-resolution image of the "Making of" book cover and tweaking that. To me, that shot of Bond and Madeleine behind the bullet-ridden windshield seemed to best capture the mood of the movie (one of my favorite Bond films in fact).

I have seen the Octopussy styled art on Etsy, but I personally don't think it matches the tone or era of the movie at all, so I never bothered trying to find an HQ version to use.

Thanks Raferjanders! Those covers for YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE and A VIEW TO A KILL were exactly what I was looking for.

I know that the Golden Gate Bridge art from A VIEW TO A KILL was featured on the original Japanese release and the remastered edition from 2003, but I always wanted a cover without the additional image of Bond and Mayday back-to-back plastered at an angle over the original poster.

JGrouse0498, I think I came across that bullet-ridden cover art last year and really liked it... I'll have to track it down. I have yet to see NO TIME TO DIE. Just last night my wife and I watched CASINO ROYALE and will be going through the Craig Bonds leading up to his final installment. I'm looking forward to it.

Thanks again!

NTTD clearly isn't everyone's cup of tea. Personally, I loved it, and I mostly enjoyed SPECTRE too (The foster brother angle was the only disruptive misfire). My wife and I both agreed that it certainly did NOT feel like a three hour movie. It moved along at a good pace--much like Avengers: Endgame IMO. I think it can be better appreciated if viewed as the final act of a self-contained series--not just "another 007 movie".

As for that cover art, don't bother tracking it down. Here it is.

That looks fantastic! Thanks for posting it again.

I love the gold font and how the image is for the most part black & white, apart from the hint of blue in the eyes and the red of the blood.

I'm sure I'll really enjoy NO TIME TO DIE. I usually find something in every Bond movie that I like.

Fun fact... Last night when watching CASINO ROYALE I noticed Michael G. Wilson in his cameo in Montenegro. What I didn't know, however, is that Wilson has had numerous cameos throughout the series including one that goes as far back as GOLDFINGER when he was just 21 years old.

The Outer Limits

Nice Outer Limits cover!

I'm wondering if anyone might be interested to tackle a blanket Amazing Stories cover, since I combined the three volumes into one "album" in iTunes. Each of Intrada's covers says "Anthology One" etc. on it, and I just want a cover encompassing everything -- like The Outer Limits got!

As Black Patch and The Man is imminent from Intrada could we see some potential covers for this historic release?

Thanks steffromuk! Can't wait.

That would be awesome of course... I think raferjanders did a pair for Black Patch and Face of a Fugitive a few years back when they appeared on Intrada's poll for next Kickstarter. Here's his one for BP:



Of course the original Face of a Fugitive recording was found afterwards, and The Man swapped in. I do wonder what poster art exists for The Man, since it started as a TV movie and only later went to some theatrical screens...

I wonder if Intrada's official cover will eschew official poster images, like they did on their first Kickstarter recording, Dial M for Murder -- THAT got a pair of cool original cover designs from none other than Jim Titus! (I think that was the only time he ever designed an Intrada release?)




I assume their new Kickstarter album will feature a flipper cover, so one image on either side representing each of the two scores. I wonder what they'll come up with!

Amazing Stories



and a more conventional version

 By:   BrenKel   (Member)

I am putting together a CD-R of odds and ends from James Horner’s career (e.g. Amazing Stories, Roger Rabbit, Theme from Krull, Theme of Star Trek II, Somewhere in Time instrumental etc) and need a “Suites and Themes - The Music of James Horner” album cover.

Do any of you talented folk fancy doing one for me?

I am going to be doing a similar one for Bruce Broughton and Michael Kamen as well if anyone can have a go at that!

Somewhere in Time instrumental

Do you mean "Somewhere Out There" (Instrumental) from An American Tail?

Assuming that's you meant...

Here are two options for you:

Thank you. Great looking covers. You also do such a great job.

Very nice Suites and Themes cover JGouse, but shouldn't it be "Roger Rabbit: Tummy Trouble"?

@BrandonKelly, which recording is the Theme from Krull from?

Yes it should be, just realised that!

@BrandonKelly, which recording is the Theme from Krull from?


It’s a suite they put together on the LaLaLand Release, very similar to the edited theme from Star Trek II on the new LLL release.
