Next week is a very special and exciting one for fans of Dame Shirley.  Monday sees the official release of the new album ‘The Performance’.  To celebrate this very special occasion The Bassey Blog is to hold a competition.  We have been very fortunate to have been promised a copy of the new CD which has been signed by Dame Shirley which we will offer as the prize to one lucky fan.  Be sure to read the blog on Monday and enter the competition.  You never know it may be your lucky day!

The Performance

Astrid’s Simply Bassey #74

For this week I’ve decided to play Shirley Bassey’s version of All That Jazz, recorded in 1998 at the BBC for the programme “Viva Diva” – a lovely recording of a song never released on a CD.

Please could fans send me their suggestions for some songs for me to play. I’d love to be able to play some songs or versions of songs that mean special things for different people, and if you have a special story to share with it, I’d be more than glad to publish it alongside.
