Album commercial ‘Thank you for the years’

Today I want to show you the tv. commercial that was made for the 2003 CD ‘Thank you for the years’.The CD ‘Thank you for the years’ was compilation CD which also featured 6 new songs and was made in honour of Dame Shirley Bassey’s 50th. anniversary in show business. From the same year also a very nice article from the ‘Sunday Telegraph’ that I hope you will enjoy especially for the very beautiful pictures.

Below you can listen to the ‘Thank you for the years’ anniversary mix.

This is the sleeve note written by Dame Shirley:
The album “Thank you for the Years” is what the title suggests – it’s a celebration of my 50 years in the music business. It seems only yesterday when I signed my first professional contract in 1953 – singing in a touring variety show called “Memories of Jolson” and so much has happened since then that I can’t quite believe I’m still here – making music in a business which has changed so much since I first stepped into a recording studio.

But this is the why this album is so particularly special for me. It tracks a long and wonderful journey starting with six brand new songs recorded only this year and finishes right back where I started with my first ever single. I hope you like them as much as I do.

I thank everyone who has supported and enjoyed my work over the last 50 years. One thing is for sure it’s been one hell of a ride – and given the chance – I might just do it all over again!

Thank YOU for the years, love, Shirley Bassey

  1. Yes, Thank you for the years and The Performance are fantastic albums. I love I Only want some, finally a Big Band number after many years, Mi Amor ad Can I Turn it all around are amazing.
    The articles are very interesting and feature great photos, thank you Pieter!!!


  2. isn’t she lovely! Isn’t she wonderful! My heart goes out to her especaily after reading this article. The pictures of her by this magazine are wonderful. Especially the one of her at the table. Just beautiful!
    I take issue with the statement by the author that she is a rampant egomanic. No wonder she does not like interviews. I have to say I did learn a lot from this article. How sad that she would be sold out by her sister and adopted son. She deserves more than that.

    She is so brave to face her insecurities by performing. Very inspiring.
    Thanks for these articles, pictures and commercial. She looked fantastic.
