    This is another fairly straightforward recording based on a Wikifonia lead sheet, on Mid-Mo mandolin with tenor guitar backing.

    Thanks for the kind words!

    This tune is pretty straightforward on mandolin -- for those who want to try, I've uploaded the lead sheet (from the old Wikifonia website) here.

    Here is another re-record -- much the same arrangement and tempo as the first time around, somewhat different choices in the accompaniment and played a bit more freely.

    Make mine a Vodka-Martini, shaken, not stirred, Martin. Very evocative rendering of this great theme here, and I like your simple backing arrangement.

    Thanks, John, and apologies for the delay in replying. It's an old classic, and always fun to play. Works suprisingly well on mandolin, too.

    It does work well. Sorry, I didn't comment first time - must have got overwhelmed by the copious activity in the group!

    Given that Bond is my family name, I had to try this. I added some extra parts.

    Great recording, Martin. I like the timing as well as your choice of accompaniment.

    phb256 - Thanks for your unique version on mandocello.
