Roland Alphonso & Studio 1 Orchestra [ From Russia With Love / Cleopatra ]


Format : 7" / New / Reissue
Label : Rock A Shacka
Genre : Rock Steady



The evocative melody from this classic Bond movie will forever be associated with Daniela Bianchi¡Çs portrayal of the alluring Russian beauty Tatiana. The slinky hit theme song was originally sung by Matt Monro. but Roland Alphonso¡Çs Ska instrumental arrangement became a classic tune in its own right. exemplifying Jamaican music¡Çs unparalleled ability to mould and successfully rework source material from almost any musical genre.
From the high-tension cymbal intro to the Eastern-infused flute and horn melody. Cleopatra on the b-side is an urgent. uncompromising Ska instrumental scorcher. Original coupling.
