I've been stubbornly (shamelessly?) trying to shoehorn this Kenny Rogers jam into this opening sequence for EONS. it's just never fit. Well, yesterday I gave it one more shot. I scoured YouTube for live cuts of "The Gambler" that might better fit the tempo of the opening. The original song was at once way too short and paced too slowly. Well, along comes this live cut (I believe from a Country Music Awards show in 1978). The sound quality isn't stellar. Maybe I'll find a better recording. Kenny did kick the tempo of this version up a notch... and I think the studio audience clapping really makes the experience. Without further adieu, I give you the CASINO ROYALE Opening Remix with Kenny Rogers' "The Gambler."
