Thanks to Gary for a real gem. A record that the BBC banned!

It even has “CENSORED” on the cover of the sleeve. Hopefully that attracted more sales.

Today the lyrics seem mild – but in 1950’s Britain, sex did not exist 🙂


“On eBay I recently purchased an original EP of “Shirley Bassey At The Cafe’ De Paris”.

I have to say that the songs were very suggestive for the day.

Shirley’s voice was fresh and young, but for a nineteen year old a very seasoned performance. I thought it was really good.

Recently on the blog you had a link to a website that is selling out-of-copyright Shirley Bassey tracks from the 1950’s and the cuts from this EP are included.”
