A GOOD (BUT NOT GREAT) ALBUM FROM BASSEY'S LATTER YEARS
on 6 July 2003
This studio album was released in 1995, and features songs from the movies. They are not neccessarily the title songs - some may have merely featured in a film, and so in some cases the link is tenable (for example, her cover of Patsy Cline's Crazy).
There are three really stand out tracks - Love on the rocks (from The Jazz Singer), Try a little tenderness (From The Commitments) and Who wants to live forever (From Highlander).
Whilst Bassey's voice shines throughout, the arrangements on the rest are not all up to the usual high standard (for example this version of Goldfinger falls short of the brilliant original).
Some listeners may be disappointed but all in all worth having for the outstanding "Who wants to live forever".
