There comes a time when a Dame has the right to rest and forget the world! Not only because she has earned a rest, but mostly because she has nothing to offer!!! With Dame Shirley Bassey, The Party Has Just Started could be the name of this FABULOUS! album... Perfect new mixes and recordings of her greatest hits, with an edge of timeless modernity. Thank You, Dame Shirley, for everything, and for showing us that there's still beauty, class and style, in your timeless renditions of these songs!

I was apprehensive when I heard this album was going to be made up of new arrangements of The great Bassey hits as i am such an ardent fan. When I inserted it in my cd player I was instantly blown away by the sophistication and freshness of these recordings. I truly believe this album is going to to be one of the true classics of the 21st century. A Masterpiece !! Well done Dame Shirley, you have nailed it this time.

Based on the bond-esque Living Tree and samples already available on-line and other tracks played on the radio this is going to be a great album. The title says it all and the party has started for all of Dame Shirley's fans, new and old. She really puts her own stamp on tracks like "I Will Survive" which is as far removed from the Gloria Gaynor version as you could imagine. Remixes of Where Is The Love and Big Spender take them into the 21st century and Cagedbaby's remix of This Is My Life is as cool as ice!. And who could forget Shirley's version of Get The Party Started from the M&S TV adverts?. It's going to be a great party! Don't miss out!

She is a Dame! The diva was made a Dame in the 1999 New Year's honours list (the BBC report is still on their website.) Using that title is something her generation for serious musicians do - compare Dame Cleo Laine and Sir John Dankworth. They are recognised for their contribution so why not use the title to celebrate a milestone in her career.

More importantly, Dame Shirley still has a big sound and humour in her delivery. (Listen for the slight giggle in the "kiss my **** " line of "Get The Party Started".) The set list on the CD fits together well and is a great selection of standards across the generations: fitting for a celebration of a career that has spanned so many years.

Time to join the party!

Format: Audio CD
For the most part, we Yanks know Bassey for her contributions to the Bond films, with her rendition of the "Goldfinger" theme, without a doubt, being one of the best performances in all of pop music history. We are not as fortunate as the British - and the rest of the world - to be as familiar with the legendary singer's total discography.

However, it appears that "Get the Party Started" should change all that as it is truly an album for the masses and those that truly appreciate a magnificent vocalist.

Dame Bassey, looking much younger than her 71 years, possesses a vocal instrument that is unparalleled, sounding just as full and vibrant as she did forty-odd years ago. The album of covers allows the singer to delve into a variety of sounds with some songs obviously placing a sly tongue-in-cheek nod to her Bond songs in the arrangement department. Her selections include songs made famous by the likes of Pink (the title cut), Tom Jones ("I Who Have Nothing"), Grace Jones ("Slave to the Rhythm"), Lionel Richie ("Hello"), Donny Hathaway/Robert Flack ("Where is the Love") and Gloria Gaynor ("I Will Survive"). However, like a true diva, Bassey puts her signature vocal power on each one, making them new and fresh as only she could.

The disc could have easily dismissed as a novelty or another in that long line of albums of covers by artists that have been released with excellent to moderate success (Think: Rod Stewart, Michael McDonald, etc.) But, Bassey, backed by a brilliant band and arrangements, has created something that stands above the norm.

The party has started and looks like it'll go on for some time.

Shirley has had her contributions to the Music industry over the past 40 years recognised properly at last and she deserves it, why shouldnt she use the title bestowed upon her, she is obviously proud of it and so she should be. The pre release tracks I have heard and the single Living Tree sound fantastic with a great voice and excellent production, I saw Shirley in concert last year and she blew the house down, other less talented singers are encouraged to keep recording why shouldn't she if She still sounds great, Dame Shirley knows how to get the party started, you go girl!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This new release comes just shortly after her much praised appearance at Glastonbury. This album should attract lots of praise too especially since she re-invents herself (again!) and mixes new versions of some of her own famous songs with ones made famous by other artists (Lionel Richie's 'Hello' for example). The best track for me is the title track which I think sounds better than the 2002 original by Pink. The first single 'The Living Tree' gave Shirley her first top 40 hit since 1973 and if there's any justice 'Get the Party Started' should do even better. A must buy album!

Shirley Bassey's amazing voice has certainly improved with age like fine wine. Get The Party Started is a truly remarkable performance from the Dame. Now the whole world will know the Dame can carry a dance tune as well as if not better than the young divas of today. She certainly gives it her all in The Living Tree. The passion she invests in this song gives it a Bond-like feel. The other tracks have been admirably remixed especially Slave To The Rhythm. I always thought the original lacked something. Big Spender has a wonderful new beat too. I can't stop listening to this CD!
