After 2007’s patchy, one album Get the Party Started, The Performance is a return to what Bassey does best: sweeping, orchestral overstatement. This collection is also contemporary, but instead of resorting to Mark Ronson or other remixers du-jour, she mines the talents of a collection of disparate, yet established songwriters. John Barry even hands her his first song since Diamonds Are Forever – shame it’s not as good, but then what is? The collaborations gel neatly with Arnold’s production, particularly an unlikely Kaiser Chiefs’ contribution, which resists a Bassey Britpop vocal about shoplifting and is surprisingly Bond-ish. It’s certainly superior to recent under-written themes, even if I Love You Now will struggle to find a suitable villain. Another highlight is Rufus Wainwright’s flamenco-esque Apartment, where Bassey finds the skip of a woman half her age.
The Shirley Bassey Singles Album is a compilation album released in 1975 by British singer Shirley Bassey. Having seen a sales dip in the latter half of the 1960s, Shirley Bassey enjoyed a successful comeback in the 1970s, beginning with the single and album hits, "Something".
So when you pick up Dame Shirley Bassey’s new album and see two Welsh dragons back to back, prominently featured above the initials DSB, it’s natural to ponder its raison d’être. Unlike Arctic Monkeys, who covered Diamonds are Forever at Glastonbury in 2007, Bassey - who was already pregnant with her first child when she worked as a packer in a Cardiff factory, aged 16 - is a universe away from her proletarian beginnings. Dame Shirley, as she would rather you called her, rarely has occasion to slum it these days. However. ontinue reading.
