RECOMMENDED: MOONRAKER (Gary Frenay)

You may recall that Gary Frenay has been featured here on elobeatlesforever (elobf) not least due to his being a co-founding member of The Flashcubes as well as a renowned musician in his own right. Gary contacted Yours Truly KJS this week on the subject of his contribution to a new album of James Bond themed covers entitled "Bond, Bond Songs" compiled by Andrew Curry, the man who brought us "Drink A Toast To Innocence: A Tribute To Lite Rock" back in 2013.

And, after tackling the immense songbook of Roy Wood with his fellow Flashcubes in their 2012 long player "Sportin' Wood", Gary has now recorded a sublime version of "Moonraker" for the newly released Bond album which oozes the Traveling Wilburys sound with a dab of George Harrison, a touch of Roy Orbison and the production values of Jeff Lynne, thanks to fellow Flashcube Tommy Allen thus:

"Moonraker" by Gary Frenay and "Bond, Bond Songs" can purchased in digital or limited edition 2CD format via these links thus:
