Best of James . . . James Bond: 50 Years - 50 Tracks is a new compilation of music from the James Bond film series, due for release on October 10, 2012 in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of Dr. No.

The 23-track single-disc edition and deluxe edition of Best Of Bond both feature the themes from all 22 Bond films released since 1962, including The John Barry Orchestra’s seminal “James Bond Theme” from Dr. No, with striking cover art depicting Bond’s “Golden Girl” and the official 50th anniversary logo. The John Barry Orchestra’s orchestral main theme and Louis Armstrong’s love theme from 1969’s On Her Majesty's Secret Service are both included, and the expanded edition adds several integral score pieces by The John Barry Orchestra and other original songs heard in the films by Dame Shirley Bassey, Marvin Hamlisch, The Pretenders, Moby, K.D. Lang, David Arnold, and others.
