Shirley is at No 5 in HMV‘s Easy Listening chart with ‘At The Pigalle / Live At Talk Of The Town’ and it’s not released until Monday. This must be with all the pre-orders HMV have had for this highly anticipated release. It’s great news and she’s back where she belongs.
Hopefully this will encourage BGO to continue releasing more of Shirley’s terrific recordings.
HMV.com are dispatching their pre-orders now so there is a possibility that you may get it before Monday!
The release date for the BGO release of ‘Live In Japan’ is 6th October. Great news as this will definitely be a ‘must have’ album for fans. This live concert from 1974 is fabulous and I believe to be one of the best of Shirley’s live recordings. It’s already available to pre-order on Amazon UK (Click for details and to pre-order)!
And the song for today is “Danke Schoen” - continuing a German theme and my way of thanking for the kind messages so many people have sent to me since starting the blog. Your own suggestions for songs to feature would be very welcome. Click here to email your suggestion.
From Ian our ‘Gown Guru’ about the dress Shirley is wearing for this concert:
This gown was designed by Sara Perceval around 1983, Sara did all of the lace chiffon gowns for DSB in the 90′s. We call it the Cockeral Gown for obvious reasons. The gown was worn at Blazers in London in 1984, on British tv in 1987 and in Berlin in 1987 and several other occasions in the late 80′s. It was sadly destroyed in a fire in the early 90′s!
Songs: Goldfinger & Medley: What a day this has been/Almost like being in love & Never, never, never.
