The single CD release and disc 1 of the two-disc set has the 23 theme songs from the 22 different Bond films (On Her Majesty’s Secret Service had a main and secondary theme, both included here).

Disc 2 in the two-CD set is selected incidental music from the films most of which are instrumental with a few vocal tracks from the likes of Shirley Bassey, Nina, The Pretenders, k.d. lang and Scott Walker.
