Casino Royale (Vocal Version)


Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass
Casino Royale (Vocal Version)


This song is from my favorite Bond film, Casino Royale (1967) the second, of three adaptations of the first Bond novel.

Does anyone know who sings this?

Does anyone know why it wasn't included on the soundtrack?

Track 20

Top o' the morning, KaBluie.

Quote: "Does anyone know who sings this?"

If that is the last song of the movie, this may provide a clue ...

The "Full cast and crew" page for Casino Royale on the Internet Movie Database (link) includes the item:

Mike Redway ... singer: closing theme song (uncredited)

I could not find any reference about why it isn't on the soundtrack CD. Perhaps Redway wanted too large a royalty fee?

I Googled Mike Redway and found this:

It's nice to have that mystery solved!

Hi! I never had "Beach Blanket Bingo" sorry. My "Casino Royale (Vocal Version)" was deleted long ago. But here's a link where you can download the whole CR soundtrack including the vocal version.
