Topic: 'Underneath the Mango Tree'

Hello,

Do you remember a song heard originally in Dr. No called 'Underneath the Mango Tree'?  I found a cool version of the song with a Raggae beat to it.

Here is the link to the song:

I would like some feedback.

Interesting version, but I much prefer this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K-VEVNdQc1g  Diana Coupland, then wife of Monty Norman.

I like it myself.

Both versions are good and I'm happy to admit I am a huge reggae fan.  The Dr. No soundtrack is certainly not everyone's cup of tea and you can find the version of Under the Mango Tree Barbel posted on there if you haven't already.  There are also two other versions and all are worth a listen in my opinion.

The soundtrack itself isn't that great but it's an easy listen on a warm summer evening.   ajb007/cheers  ajb007/martini

It also includes links to earlier threads discussing the DN soundtrack, an area in which I have more knowledge than most since I worked on two court cases concerning it, and I'd be happy to answer questions within certain legal limits.

You worked on the cases??  ajb007/amazed May I ask how or connected with who?

I've read the links you posted and you often sent pms instead of answering online, is there a reason?

I find really interesting the "James Bond Theme Lawsuit" and I think it's all quite transparent and public right now. For instance: http://www.jollinger.com/barry/lawsuit.htm

I'll send a PM later, ggl007, but for now you may find it amusing that the copy of DN everyone was watching in the case you mentioned above.... was mine.  ajb007/bond

DNs music was better than GEs minimalist spiel  ajb007/rolleyes

Agreed, for the most part.
