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".

There are two Shirley Bassey albums titled "Sings the Movies". This one focuses more on her early days and Classic Films. "Goldfinger" simply had to be included. She sounds stunning in "As time goes by" from CASABLANCA, & "Funny Girl" from FUNNY GIRL. This album could as well work as a greatest hits collection. It features, "Where do I begin (LOVE STORY)" & the little gem "I don't know how to love him" from (Jesus Christ Superstar) taken from the album ...sings Andrew Lloyd Webber. It's a great album & If you really enjoyed it, get the other "Sings The Movies" CD...

This is the other "...Sings The Movies" album. Here, Shirley performs the standard classic movie love themes. "As Time Goes By" from 'Casablanca', "Tonight" from West Side story" and on & on.
Shirley Shines on the Bond-like tracks, "Goldfinger", "Diamonds..." & "Liquidator".

ONE OF THE SHIRLEY'S BEST ALBUMS. THE VERSION OF WHO CAN TO LIVE FOREVER IS THE BEST. I THINK THAT FREDY MERCURY MUST BE EXCITED IN HEAVEN WHIT THIS HONOR. LOVE ON THE ROCKS IS MAGNETIC, ENERGETIC, GLAMOROUS AND AN EXCELLENT REMIX OF NEIL DIAMOND HIT. THIS ALBUM IS TOO SIMILAR LIKE SHIRLEY BASSEY SINGS THE A. WEBBER BECAUSE ALL THE SONGS SEEMS TO BE WRITTEN FOR HER.
SIMPLY FANTASTIC.

Something to while away the time, and it is good to have some of her James Bond theme songs.
