Here’s my favourite review of the broadcast, which sums the show up perfectly:
“Whatever your view of Bassey’s style, you have to admit her singing voice is as dazzling as her frocks. Certainly the celebrities in the audience look enraptured as she belts out Goldfinger, Something and Big Spender. The questions she’s asked are the usual scripted bits of nonsense, but so what? For the millions who adore her, it’s a rare opportunity to see her perform – and she’s a helluva performer.”
From the Radio Times – Thank you for such a fair review.
