New CD Out Monday August 4th
New CD Out This Monday!

Shirley is at No 5 in HMV‘s Easy Listening chart with ‘At The Pigalle / Live At Talk Of The Town’ and it’s not released until Monday.  This must be with all the pre-orders HMV have had for this highly anticipated release.  It’s great news and she’s back where she belongs. 

Hopefully this will encourage BGO to continue releasing more of Shirley’s terrific recordings. are dispatching their pre-orders now so there is a possibility that you may get it before Monday!

News Update – Live In Japan

Live In Japan 1974
Live In Japan 1974

The release date for the BGO release of ‘Live In Japan’ is 6th October.  Great news as this will definitely be a ‘must have’ album for fans.  This live concert from 1974 is fabulous and I believe to be one of the best of Shirley’s live recordings.  It’s already available to pre-order on Amazon UK (Click for details and to pre-order)!
