FILM:  Octopussy (1983)
TITLE SONG: “All Time High”
COMPOSED BY: John Barry, Tim Rice, Stephen Short
PERFORMED BY: Rita Coolidge

Octopussy is the soundtrack for the eponymous thirteenth James Bond film. The score was composed by John Barry, the lyrics by Tim Rice. The opening theme, All Time High is sung by Rita Coolidge and is one of five title songs or songs that are not named after film’s title.

The original compact disc released in 1985, by A&M Records, was recalled because of a printing error, and became a rarity. In 1997, the soundtrack was released, by Rykodisc, with the original soundtrack music and some film dialogue, (additional tracks, No. 3, No. 7, and No. 10 seen below) on an Enhanced CD version. The 2003 release, by EMI, restored the original soundtrack music sans dialogue. The original music video of All Time High shows Rita Coolidge in very soft focus in an Indian palace, but it is one of the film’s locations, the Royal Pavilion in Brighton, England.
