devil may care

Description
A few months ago there was a competition to write the theme / incidental music for a new James Bond book. The music was to be included on an audio book.
Audio samples of readings from previous books had to be included in the composition. I was quite pleased with my entry but didn't make it into the finalists. So am sharing it with Macjams. Hope you like it.
Many thanks to Ben Boldt for his wonderful Xylophone and Accordian sound.

You nailed it
This has a really classy John barry feel to it, Brendan. Really crisp production and great guitars ... nice 60's Connery vibe to this.

thanks
Cheers Steve
John Barry , especially the theme to The Persuaders, has been a big influence on me so I was aiming for something akin to it.
Thanks for dropping by

good vibes
Hi Michael2
Glad you liked the song.
Was dying to get a dulcimer on there but didn't have time to route it through my sampler into GB.
Might do another mix of it sometime
thanks for dropping in and listening

what a trip
love all the talk about murder. The xylophone adds a very cool space to this. Im a fan of the surf sounding guitar played in a secret agent mode~! Excellent!

murder
was a bit of a nightmare trying to choose which vocal sample to put in..and where. But it was a requisite of entry to the competition so had to do it.
Think it worked out not too badly. Glad you liked it and thanks for dropping by

Gotta say - you had me from the first notes
your melody is so dead-on perfect for the genre it's amazing. The whole composition is wonderful - you win in my book (pardon the pun).

Good Feel
This is another good one and catches the feel of a Bond theme very well. They were dumb for not using it.

Miffed
I was a bit miffed they didn't use it as I thought it would have fitted brilliantly..if I might say so myself.
John Barry is a bit influence for me so I tried to get a bit of that in.
Thanks for your comments
