My Rhythm Divine Story

Today I would like to share with you one of my all-time favourite Shirley Bassey songs, The Rhythm Divine, recorded with the Swiss band Yello.
 
This incredibly emotional and powerful song was released in 1987 on various different releases but it was on the Canadian 12″ pressing that I discovered one of the most beautiful photos of Shirley Bassey…

Unfortunately the picture on the LP was too small to have it enlarged or to have it made into a poster, so one day I had the idea of having a painting commissioned of it. I found a painter in the nearby town of Stuttgart who made a painting of the photo using the picture from the LP. I was so impressed with the result and the painting now hangs above my desk where I can admire it every day…
