Music Of Mystery, Mayhem And Murder - Danny Davis

Red-Eyed Rats
Music From 007 - James Bond Motion Pictures
Music Of Mystery, Mayhem And Murder
Danny Davis And His Orchestra
Metro M-520
1965

Here we have a fantastic Bond knock off (aren't they all?). The record kicks off with a nice, but typical cover of Goldfinger, then picks up speed with The James Bond Theme and then presents a really terrific version of Peter Gunn complete with 60s female chorus vocals... and then for the next two tracks Davis gets into Creed Taylor territory (Shock/Son Of Shock) by including groans, moans and mild assorted sound effects.

On to side two the begins with several nice "Bond" covers, From Russia With Love and Dr. No. And, once again the next track, Fall Out, is killer cool. That track is followed by one titled wonderfully, Red-Eyed Rats. The LP closes with one wild tune titled The Chase.

It is hard to choose a sample... but I have to go with the fabulous Red Eye-Rats!
