Music from and inspired by the James Bond films is the theme of Intrigue with Soul (Mercury, 1965), the only album released by Perry & the Harmonics, a Chicago-based group.
The recognizable name among the five musicians is Ed Townsend, who had a 1958 vocal hit on Capitol with For Your Love. Townsend, who produced and plays piano on Intrigue with Soul, later co-write the 1970s hit Let's Get It On with Marvin Gaye.
The other members of Perry & the Harmonics are Clarence Perry on tenor sax, Richard McCrea on organ, guitarist Paul Pratt and drummer Maurice Wells. There are also vocals and narration on several tracks, courtesy of Townsend.
Among the soul-jazz offerings from the group is a version of From Russia with Love.
From Russia with Love
Do the Monkey with James was pulled from Intrigue with Soul as a single, but neither it nor the LP had any impact. Both are now collector's items. The one LP is the entire recorded output of Perry & the Harmonics. It has not been released in a digital format.
Here's another track from the album.
