I can understand why Dr. No and From Russia With Love might not have any new music because the original soundtracks are jammed with tracks already.
So what is up with The Spy Who Loved Me?
Basically, it is the same old thing. Only better sounding.
You might think the soundtrack would contain the actual music from the movie: The title song and the end titles as it was heard in the film (right now you can only transfer it from DVD), the music used for Bond and Anya on a boat to Cairo, Bond and Anya following Jaws into the Egyptian ruins, the underwater battle between the Espirit Lotus and Stromberg's frogmen, the battle on board the Liparus, Bond wetbiking to Atlantis, Atlantis' destruction, the chase between Bond, Anya, Jaws, and Naomi (and the cue used for the Lotus' entrance into the water).
Instead we get THIS.
Perhaps there is some kind of contractual agreement (or disagreement) here between Marvin Hamlisch and the powers that be; you can remaster The Spy Who Loved Me all you can....but nevertheless it is NOT the soundtrack that the movie, AND the fans deserved.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very good Bond score Dec 30 2003
Format:Audio CD
"The Spy Who Loved Me" is a very fine Bond score. Although many of the cues are not the film-versions, this soundtrack is still very enjoyable. Of course, there is some exciting music missing: The Ski Chase, The Underwater Battle, The Bond Theme (heard when Bond opens his Union Jack parachute)and the flmversion of "Ride To Atlantis". The rest of the music heard in the film is not that interesting in my opinion, so the release is not too bad.
I consider the main title song "Nobody Does it Better" as one of the finest Bond-songs. "Bond 77" (My favourite track) is just stunning. Ride To Atlantis is a very relaxed and cool cue. The instrumental version of "Nobody Does It Better" contains a nice saxophone solo and "The Tanker" is just brassy and powerful. I love the moment (I think it is at 3:45)where Derek Watkins (the principal trumpet player) just screams on his trumpet! Simply fantastic!
The Egyptian source music is very good actually. And cues like Bond 77 and The Tanker sound very Bondish, which is good of course.
"The Spy Who Loved Me" soundtrack is really underrated. Of course it's not so good as "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" or "The Living Daylights", but that don't means this score is bad. If you're a fan of Bond-music, you should give it a try.

2.0 out of 5 stars Somebody Could Have Done Better May 27 2003
Format:Audio CD
Composer Marvin Hamlisch stepped into to handle the score for the Bond film, The Spy Who Loved Me. While the film itself is one of the better movies during the "Roger Moore" era of the franchise, the score could have been so much better, in my opinion. Most of the of the film scores in the seies had a timeless quality about them. The main trouble I have with the music for this film, is the fact that you can tell that it was composed for a 70's film Hamlisch uses a lot of disco like interludes to pepper the music-while the other film scores may seem dated at certain times-it's not quite as obvious as it is here. Since I am not a fan of the disco era it really was a distraction, and to be honest, I had forgotten just how much of it there was in the score. The fun of it wore very thin real fast
The soundtrack's saving graces are the wonderfull title song "Nobody Does It Better", sung by Carly Simon, and the "The Pyramid". However, I was also disappointed in the CD itself. Unlike many of the recently reissued Bond soundtrack, there wasn't any bonus tracks included here. I'm sure that I would given this a higher rating, had there been additional cues as part of the package-perhaps it could have balanced out the disco sound a bit
The only "bonuses" here are remastered sound and another set of well written liner notes from film music historian Jeff Bond for a little persrpective on things. The only reason I am going to keep this one is for the sake of completeness-even then-it's a stretch rest assured. The CD has 11 tracks with a running time of (just) 36:20.

4.0 out of 5 stars Marvin Hamlisch shakes up the James Bond theme! March 26 2003
Format:Audio CD
The Spy Who Loved Me has now been remastered, but sadly contains no new tracks, but the musical quality has gone up. This score is one of the early few that was not scored by John Barry. He couldn't return to England, so Marvin Hamlisch was chosen instead. The result is a pulse-pounding disco-laced score with one of the most exciting renditions of the James bond theme (Bond 77) and a mesmerizing and inspirational title songs ever! However, this soundtrack is a rather poor representation of the full score, but it is still very well done with what it has. The title track- Nobody Does It Better is performed with the undeniable charm of Carly Simon's soothing voice, and the song charted at an impressive #2 for three weeks in the US. It is regarded as one of the best Bond songs ever. The full-blown, blasting Bond 77 is a disco-smash track that combines the James Bond Theme with synthesizers and the result is magnificent. This was the track that really stood out for being so different, but working so well. Ride To Atlantis is another favorite of mine with an odd chime sound that generally builds throughout the track and makes it a great track on the soundtrack. The Tanker is a hauntingly powerful track that is also another good track. There is a very nice Instrumental Nobody Does It Better with Marvin Hamlisch on the piano. Mojaba Club and many other tracks have a very local music feel to them , and it depends on whether you like it or not. All in all, The Spy Who Loved Me is a magnificent Bond score with a great title song, wonderful tracks and a nice inner booklet too. Shaken and stirred to perfection!
