    I ordered the new TWINE soundtrack last night along with the 30th Anniversary Die Hard soundtrack set from the LaLaLand online store. I see the check out is revamped and it was a much better experience! I even set up an account this time as it was so much better. I buy enough discs there so it made sense. :).

    The TWINE and Die Hard soundtracks arrived today. That was a surprise how fast they arrived.

    Finally had a chance to open the TWINE set and listening to it now. It’s nice that it’s all there, Gunbarrel and all!

    Tomorrow Never Dies is next? Then Goldeneye? I hope this keeps going but at a faster rate. 18 more to go not counting the Craig films if we keep going in this reverse order. And not counting the 1967 Casino Royale and the 1983 Never Say Never Again.

    Tomorrow Never Dies makes sense this year. Hopefully another November release. Arnold also scored casino Royale and Quantum so maybe we will see those.

    I thought Quantum was his best score since Tomorrow Never Dies. I am enjoying the new TWINE expanded too!

    I hope David Arnold returns for Bond 25. It’s time.

    I hope the other scores can be expanded in the future too. Especially the Roger Moore ones which aside from Live and Let Die and For Your Eyes Only we’re overlooked on the 2003 remasters.

    At any rate it’s been a miracle and amazing to get 2 more 007 soundtracks expanded after so many years! I know many of us have been waiting years for more expanded 007 soundtracks!

    I am grateful!

    I feel like I should know this but I can’t remember so here goes:

    Was the 2003 emi reissues of daylights, for your eyes only and octopussy the same mastering as the ryko versions? That is the we’re the same disc essentially?

    Just wondering if they were further mastering done. I know they were not further expanded.

    Thanks!!

    I only have the Ryko versions myself, but my understanding is that the EMI are identical, minus the incidental dialogue on Octopussy. (Which I enjoy. I know many don't.) I believe the only EMI release which was poorly received was A View To A Kill. General consensus is the Japanese release from 1996 is superior. Again, I do not have both to compare.

    Here is a nice review of Octopussy with a little history about it's release on CD.

    Thank you! Funny I pulled the same article as you linked as well!
    So the 3 ryko transfers were re used for the emi releases.

    I hope we get new expanded releases of octopussy, view, Moonraker, spy, and golden gun someday.
