Most fans know the story about DSB’s involvement in Chris Rea’s movie ‘La Passione’

Thanks to Pieter for a 1996 conversation with the great man himself.

Hello from America!



I must tell you how much I love and appreciate your daily blog of everything Dame Shirley.


Personally, I have attended dozens of Dame Shirley concerts worldwide throughout the years. Seeing her video clips on YouTube is an absolute delight.


Whenever I see photos on your blog, I immediately say “Hey! I’ve seen Shirley wearing that gown in concert.”


Every day I log on to your blog and I love it. Many Thanks!


If and When our Diamond Dame Diva comes to America, I have 15 close friends who will secure tickets for a concert.


Best Regards,


Philly sounds


From the Philadelphia Daily News:




One of the biggest of ’60s British Invasion belters was Shirley Bassey, best known here for her commanding performance of the movie theme “Goldfinger.”


What a surprise and delight to find she’s still vocally kicking butt four decades later, though now as the royally endowed Dame Shirley Bassey, don’tcha know, on “Get the Party Started” (Decca, B).


Yeah, she’s rocking out on our girl Pink’s hit, as well as on vintage show-stoppers like the Broadway razzler-dazzler “Big Spender,” Gloria Gaynor’s disco-era “I Will Survive,” Lionel Richie’s “Hello” and the eternal chest-beater, “What Now My Love.”
