Mark Knopfler and Peter Frampton / James Bond theme songs

Mark Knopfler and Peter Frampton are among the guests on a new album by Brian Bennett, the longtime drummer with British chart champions the Shadows.

Knopfler plays on “All The Time In The World” (1969), Barry’s composition with lyricist Hal David that became a hit for Louis Armstrong, from the soundtrack of the James Bond film “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service“. Frampton appears on a new version of another Bond theme, “Thunderball,” (1965) and Marvin on “The Appointment“.
Knopfler, a lifelong Shadows fan, says that “All The Time In The World” was one of Barry’s personal favourites. It was such a thrill to be asked to contribute to this version by Brian, one of my all-time favourite great drummers and a fine composer and arranger himself.

Listen to Peter Frampton on “Thunderball” (track 1) and Mark Knopfler on “All The Time In The World” (track 9) on the Brian Bennett Orchestra’s Shadowing John Barry on Spotify.
