On 27th October Music Ages are releasing a CD called ‘Shirley Bassey’ in the UK. This was released earlier this year in Europe and was called ’4 Original 45 EP’s 16 Tracks’! It’s a digipak and is really very good for those of you that collect Shirley’s CDs. As you can see it features 2 EPs from her Philips recordings and 2 from her EMI (Columbia) days. It shows the sleeve of a Spanish EP called ‘Goldfinger’ but it does not feature all the songs that was on that release. ‘Strange How Love Can Be’ and ‘Who Can I Turn To’ are not included on the CD and are replaced by the tracks ”S Wonderful’ and ‘April In Paris’.
The sleeve has been made to look as though it has aged and the CD itself is printed as an old 45 vinyl record. The quality is pretty good too. I have a copy of it from Spain. It is available to pre-order. HMV and Play appear to be the cheapest.
