For today’s blog we have a performance from Dame Shirley Bassey from a German TV show called: ‘Gala der Schallplatte 1993’ (Gala of the record). Songs: ‘Wind beneath my wings’ where Shirley is only being accompanied by Michael Alexander on the piano and ‘How do you keep the music playing’. Both songs from the album ‘Keep the music playing’. The show is being presented by Caterina Valente who is very impressed by Shirley’s performance and she introduces her as her ‘neighbour’. Caterina and Shirley lived in the same apartment building when Shirley first moved to Lugano in Switzerland. After that the family moved to the villa ‘Capricorn’ on the borders of Lake Lugano. I have asked Graham from Gayradio uk. to play this wonderful live version of ‘Wind beneath my wings’ on tonight’s show. Below a fun article from a 1993 magazine. (Dame Shirley got a party started).
