It took me a long time to `come round` to Shirley Bassey. It was partly thanks to her recent album The Performance and the televised concert she gave to promote it, along with further tribute programmes, that converted me. What a great lady!
This is a bargain disc, with no frills - and no sleevenotes - but as such is one of the best introductions to Shirl I have come across.
The early tracks here are something of a revelation, as she actually sounds more than a little like Piaf, such is the intensity of her singing, in a slightly simpler, less overwraught style than she later adopted. My favourite of these is Reach For The Stars, a lovely song with a great melody, recorded in 1961, when she was a mere 24.
Most of her best-loved songs are here, including her Olympian version of the suitably dramatic Climb Every Mountain, the marvellous I (Who Have Nothing), the immortal Goldfinger - as famous now as the film itself - and the jokey Big Spender, quite a lewd song when you think about it, of which I`m quite sure Shirl is and was well aware. Her thoughtful reading of Tonight is captivating, too.
The last track is the utterly irresistible Never Never Never, her last big hit, from 1973.
The sound is good (some of these tracks are fifty years old, after all) and this is a sensible, strong selection of crowd-pleasers, lasting nearly an hour, of the Girl from Tiger Bay.
The girl done good.

I think everyone needs some Shirley Bassey in their music collection. There are times when only the Dame's sense of heightened drama and unique interpretations of songs will do. With a career spanning over so many decades it can be hard to know where to begin. Studio albums can be a little patchy, song choice is not always on point but the novice cannot go wrong by choosing from one of her many compilations. Having said that a few years back the label BGO paired her studio albums and ended up with some first class material (try "You Take My Heart Away/Yesterdays" or "Never Never Never/Good Bad And Beautiful" the latter featuring the superb track "Living" where Shirley goes into battle with a Welsh Male Voice Choir) . Anyone looking for a more contemporary edge to their Bassey should check out her 2009 "The Performance" where she was produced by David Arnold and had songs especially written for the album by the likes of the Manic Street Preachers, Rufus Wainwright, Pet Shop Boys and KT Tunstell to good effect. Anyone wanting a bit more getting- ready- to- go- out- on- a- Saturday night with their Bassey should consider her "Diamonds Are Forever (The Remix Album) where a selection of her familiar hits are remixed by names such as Groove Armada, Kenny Dope and Mantronix for a selection of tunes which end up more bangin' than cheesy. For me, if I could only have one Bassey CD on my shelves the one I would choose would be this, my 80th best CD of all time. Budget label Music For Pleasure put this out in 1996 It picks up the Bassey story from 1960, by which time she had scored 6 Top 40 singles (her first number one the sublime "As I Love You"dating from 1958 isn't actually on this collection).Read more ›

"Goldfinger" or if you prefer "Goldfingaaah", "Diamonds...", "Big Spender" . . . This album includes some of Shiley's Greatest. But, there are so many Shirley Bassey 'Greatest Hits' CD's out there, do we really need another one? Instead they should try and re-release those un-available recordings from the 70's.
Well, Anyway... Shirley's Dynamic Voice and Emotionally charged performances will sure satisfy new & old fans over and over...
