Help crowdfund “The Complete James Bond Themes” Book

From “Dr No” to “Spectre”: the history of the James Bond movie themes is at least as rich as that of the entire franchise. Focusing on the subject is author Nick Parkhouse and our support is needed to crowdfund the book.

The Complete James Bond Themes explores the history of the iconic songs that have accompanied the famous opening credits of the James Bond films. This fascinating companion looks at more than 50 years of 007 themes from the creation of the original James Bond Theme to the first ever number one hit more than five decades later.

With contributions from writers, artists, composers and Bond experts, this is the definitive guide to the themes that have become as important to the enduring popularity of James Bond as the cars, gadgets and villains.

Find out who originally recorded the theme to Goldfinger, why the writers of Licence to Kill ended up paying royalties to John Barry and what Johnny Cash, Alice Cooper, Bono, Pulp, Blondie and Ace of Base have to do with the film series.

If you’re a fan of movies, music, or the world of James Bond this is the perfect book for you.

Author Nick Parkhouse has been writing about pop music and films for years. As the UK’s go-to expert on the music of 007, Nick has been heard on national radio or seen on BBC television talking about the importance of Bond music in the run-up to the release of Spectre in 2015.

If you are interested to help get the book published and released, you can contribute to the crowdfunding campaign at the UNBOUND website. You can make a pledge from € 15 / £ 10 / $ 15 up and will receive individual perks for your contribution.
