Colgems Soundtrack - Casino Royale

One of the biggest selling soundtracks put out by Colgems was this LP, which features the music that was included in the popular James Bond spoof. Ironically, two hit singles came from the soundtrack--Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass' theme song and "The Look of Love" from Dusty Springfield. However, neither of these was released as a Colgems single. Due to some bizarre arrangement, each was released on the label the artist recorded for at the time (Herb Alpert's on A&M and Dusty Springfield's on Philips), and were substantial hits on those labels. The soundtrack rose to #22 in 1967 on its own merits.

Here is the theme song to the movie as it was featured on the soundtrack.
