Big Bond fan here.
I pick up the old soundtracks on vinyl whenever I see them in good shape at reasonable cost. Very nice recordings as a whole! The essence of what vinyl is all about in many ways!
"You Only Live Twice" is maybe my favorite Bond theme also. "All Time High" from the 80's is another.
"Best of Bond" is a very comprehensive Bond's greatest hits disk on CD....good sound here as well!
The best Bond movie, "From Russia With Love", also has one of the better Bond soundtracks. What is particularly good about it is that you can hear Bond themes like "The 007 Theme" and the "James Bond" theme in their original unadorned versions.
The first film soundtrack, "Dr.No", was more of a Caribbean thing. Perhaps those involved never thought that this would become the biggest cinematic franchise in eternity! Later Bond soundtracks have these themes but they sometimes are dressed-up a bit for each latter film.
