Format: Audio CD
When I first saw the tracklisting for this album, I was shocked to see it may be what the world has needed for years: a definitive Shirley Bassey CD collection, ie. one with all bar one or two of her 31 UK chart hits. I was, however, disappointed upon buying.
The compilation is in a range of EMI's 'The Ultimate...' range of easy listening CDs and is thus bound to dodgy features (the Kay Starr compilations on EMI include non-original recordings as well). This may be an EMI CD, but it is primarly EMI Capitol it would appear. This would explain a lot about the CD, as Shirley signed to United Artists/Liberty/Capitol in the late 60s. One obvious note is that all the tracks are in Stereo. It'd be nice to see Shirley's tracks in their original mono form, but I guess stereo does make these sound good generally, so no fuss really.
Well, I opened up the sleeve and had a look. Very nice liner notes from the ever-comprehensive Martin Hutchinson, especially written for this new CD it would appear; but the inside tracklisting is the CD's major flaw. It does not list the original years next to ANY of the tracks. It merely says 'Digital Remaster 2003'. It does not even give you a chance to ascertain whether these are originals! These aren't 2003 recordings, EMI, so a little honesty wouldn't go amiss in that area.
Digitally Remastered, yes. Well, it certainly ain't late-80s style "quiet" on the CD but the remastering sounds piss-poor compared to the other, and, frankly better, new Shirley Bassey compilation CD 'Thank You For The Years'.
Well, now we come to the gruesome truth about the tracks themselves. OK, to be fair I'm exaggerating.
