AllMusic Review by

A rather slight, but well done, concept for a compilation: '60s "spy" music, either inspired by spy films, or used as themes for the spy flicks themselves. Besides the original versions of some monster hits ("Secret Agent Man," "Peter Gunn," "Goldfinger," "Mission Impossible"), you get some nifty soul rarities by Edwin Starr, Smokey Robinson, and Rex Garvin, as well as the novelty "99" by Barbara Feldon, who played the character of the same name in the Get Smart series.
