May Contain Traces of a Chris Cornell Recording

I now have in my possession a copy of the Casino Royale soundtrack album (although I haven’t yet listened all the way through).

In small letters on the reverse, in much the same way many products say “suitable for vegetarians”, is the legend “This album does not contain a Chris Cornell recording”.  I am entirely sympathetic with the many music lovers out there who presumably scrutinise each purchase they make to avoid coming into contact with the man’s work.

However, given that the score is interspersed with the theme (co-written by Cornell), perhaps it would be more appropriate to give a warning along the lines “may contain traces of nuts”, as often found on the back of packs of salted, er…peanuts.
