One of the less well known which I liked was "Capsule in Space " by the John Barry Orchestra from the film "You Only Live Twice ".
I bought a double CD a number of years ago titled:
"Best of Bond ... James Bond. 50 years - 50 tracks"
Which was excellent.

John Barry was massively underrated.

Who was the first person to portray James Bond on British Television? :D

Clue : it was not Sean Connery
David Niven.
Was this the correct answer to the television question?

You are absolutely right Mark.
Him and John Williams were the best.
There is a Topic further down on John Williams Film Scores which is worth looking at.
