Astrid’s Simply Bassey #110

This week the first of two requests from Lydia, who so kindly wrote to me saying “Thank you for the immense joy you bring to my life with this site.  I learn so much about Dame Shirley that I have missed. (I am a fan since Oct 09) She is such a phenomenal woman. I am so glad you all pay her such respect and dignity with this site. She sure deserves it. I am sure she is proud of the site. Thank you all for your diligence and hard work with this site.

Lydia has read that Shirley Bassey has done a version of For once in my life. She has indeed and it is with great pleasure that I play this beautiful recording for you today. I hope you enjoy it.

For Once In My Life (Live – Caesar’s Palace, Atlantic City, 1990)

  1. Vielen Dank Astrid. Ich liebe es! And a live version at that! She sounds great, and so is the orchestra. She makes a regular song so grand.Thanks for making my day! And many thanks to our dearest Dame Shirley.


  2. Lydia put it all so well. I have enjoyed dsb for a few more years than Lydia, I feel I almost grew up with her!! I moved to the west coast of Canada, and dsb sort off went off my radar screen. No news of her here. Glastonbury and I found her all over again. Not that she was lost, I just lost her.
    Astrid, I am sorry I cannot speak German, but if I may, I will say , in a tongue dear dsb will recognise, diolch ya fawr.
