A wonderful career tribute....
on 26 February 2013
For those who do not have anything from Dame Shirley Bassey in their CD collection, this is a great start. A wonderful selection taken from her long recording career. Just a shame that her 75th birthday went by without EMI releasing something more memorable.... In 2012 it was revealed that EMI and Capitol Records are sitting on many unreleased recordings from DSB.
A planned CD set (including a live concert from the early 1970's) was approved by The Dame for release. Unfortunately it seems, due to infighting between her old record companies, we are left waiting for these tracks from the vaults. After the amazing performance at the Oscars on Sunday last I hope that we will finally get a tribute that the great Dame deserves!
