Topic: Goldfinger - Bodega Music?

The climax with Bond's plastique exploding in the heroine flavoured banana factory leads to the abrupt end of this track.
I was wondering if it had ever been identified, because I quite like that it gives a different feel to the locale like the music heard when Bond walks through the hotel in SPECTRE...and I'm a completion-ist, after all.
Doubting it's Barry but it's not entirely out of the question seeing he'd re-arranged the Magnificent Seven theme in Moonraker.

Barry usually wrote this type of source music for the Bond films, and it sounds like Barry's style, but I have no other information.

And I'd imagine it'd be cheaper to use an original piece rather than licence out music (even in '64).

It's Barry's music, usually known as "Bodega Source" (Barry never formally titled the piece), and that's almost certainly Vic Flick on guitar. Much more unlikely is it's Jimmy Page, who worked on the GF score as a session man. ("Stairway To 007"...?  ajb007/embarrassed )

I think there was a similar cue in the Kiss Kiss club in Thunderball with the woman stepping on fire-y rocks

This one? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vq3WzZSh9Ww

It's on the 2003 expanded version of the TB soundtrack album, though not listed as a separate track (for legal reasons, the album isn't in film order). Entitled "Kiss Kiss Club", it's a variation on "Mr Kiss Kiss Bang Bang".

I can't help with any further info on the guitar music from Goldfinger but just wanted to say how much I love it too.
I've always liked that piece of music. It fits the scene so well.

I also like the banjo piece played at Goldfinger's ranch. Not only the short banjo piece but also the strings section that finish it off. Just perfect and lush. Goddamn you Barry, you were the 'nads
