Product Description

Product Description

Two late '60s albums from Dame Shirley. Both albums feature a mixture of standards, contemporary and show tunes. All BGO's Bassey re-releases have proved popular with fans old and new alike, and hopefully this will prove the same. Digitally remastered and slipcased, and with new notes.

Although I had most of the tracks on this new release already on an earlier EMI release I haven't listened to them for a good few years so I had a great time listening to them all again!....These are great sixties songs...brilliant vibrant "real " music and Shirley Bassey's voice is magnificient! ...I can't agree with the first reviewer..I think the sound quality is superb..typical sixties clear immediate well recorded sound..I think as usual BGO have done a really great job !!

At long last.....my 2 favourite Shirley Bassey albums on 1 CD remastered to perfection. Although I love all the songs in these 2 albums, my vinyl sounded dull.....it lacked the sparkle of her past recordings. BGO Records has corrected this imbalance with a fabulous remaster. Grab this CD......it's excellent value for money!

Another two great albums re-released by BGO with the best sound quality ever for these two recordings that are now both over 40 years old!
This Is My Life was released in 1968 and to be honest has never been a favorite of mine until now! The remastering brings out detail in the excellent orchestrations that were missing from the original vinyl albums. Tracks like "Goin Out Of My Head", "Softly As I Leave You" and "Where Is Tomorrow" sound like they are 2009 recordings! Overall a great album. The second album is Bassey's 1969 release "Does Anybody Miss Me". For me the best tracks on this release are the lesser known songs like "It's Always 4am" "Never Never No" and "We" where Bassey holds back on her usual strident vocals and gives a much more intimate performance. For me "Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me" and "I'll Never Fall In Love Again" sound way too cabaret and are not typical of Bassey's style, but that is just my personal taste, they are both good songs. Overall this release of Shirley Bassey's last two albums of the sixties, just before she would go on to even greater success in the seventies starting with the "Something" album, are great additions to her CD catalogue. What is especially welcome is the fantastic sound quality on this release. These albums have never sounded better!

I don't understand why so many reviewers have taken issue with the sound quality of these BGO reissues. I simply don't hear what they are hearing. They have all sounded magnificent on my system, which is fairly demanding of a recording. These two albums are no exception.

However, they do not show Dame Shirley at her absolute best. Of the two, I prefer "Does Anybody Miss Me?" which features Dame Shirley singing pianissimo on several tracks and these renditions are very effective. "So You Want to Be Loved"? first track on "This Is My Life" is the reverse. You can almost hear the producer screaming "Louder!" through the talk back system. Quieter would have suited the song better.

These albums are the last of the relatively hitless early UA years. There is a slight element of routine about them and an uncertainty of direction. The arrangements show this too. They are serviceable rather than inspired. They certainly don't compare well to those provided by Geoff Love and Nelson Riddle or those to come by Johnny Harris and Arthur Greenslade.

All this changed with a vengeance with Dame Shirley's next studio release when Noel Rodgers took over as producer and Johnny Harris produced a series of staggeringly imaginative yet modern arrangements which inspired Dame Shirley to give what are arguable her best performances on record. I have to say though that I still love and enjoy her work for Philips and EMI Columbia.

This is not to be negative about this collection. The two albums are very good. Essential if you are a fan but not the place to start if you haven't heard one of Dame Shirley's albums in its entirety. "Something Else" is probably the best of everything...but then so are the albums with Geoff Love and Nelson Riddle.

BGO records are to be commended for the sterling work they are doing on artists whose back catalogues are not making it onto disc having been deleted, and this Shirley Bassey 'two-fer' is no exception. I think BGO have excelled themselves with the re-mastering on this disc and the arrangements and Shirley's voice have been perfectly captured, which they weren't on vinyl by any stretch of the imagination! Shirley Bassey as is generally known, is one of the most important female vocalists in the history of pop music. Very much a 'live' performer, her recordings can seem wanting in terms of clarity and the very fact that her enormously powerful voice can be difficult to capture on tape. Listening to these two fabulous albums, brilliantly arranged, played and of course sung by Shirley, is an uplifting prospect, and no fan of this genre should be without them. Easy Listening is such a ridiculous title, as Bassey pushes the boundaries as to what a voice can do, and although possessing a naturally beautiful tone, she is not afraid to use it as an instrument of torture if she feels that is justified, and thus the recordings are transported from the good to the outstanding. I would hope this wonderful company will transfer her whole back catalogue for legions of fans young, old and new to enjoy over and over. We were certainly spoilt for talent in those halycion days.
