‘Born To Sing’ on CD.

Dame Shirley’s version of the song ‘Born To Sing’ has been released on CD for the very first time.  The song is featured on a double CD by Dalida entitled ‘Depuis Qu’Elle Est Partie’ and is available from Amazon France.  The price is €15.99 plus postage.  There are three versions of the song on this set and Shirley’s is one of them.  This song was originally released as the ‘B’ side to ‘There’s No Place Like London’ on the Towerbell label.  I have no idea if this has been taken from vinyl as it is believed the master tapes are lost but Dean, a big fan of Dame Shirley’s, has told us that the quality of the recording is very good.  I have not heard it myself as yet but I have ordered a copy of the CD set and hopefully it will arrive shortly.  It is very doubtful if this song will appear on CD again.

Many thanks to Dean for the information regarding the release of the CD set.

  1. The French version performed by Dalida “Mourir sur Scène” is also available on cd edited by Carrere


  2. Forgot to mention title of the cd by Dalida it’s “DALIDA FOR EVER”
    real dramatique interpretation if you know how Dalida’s life ended on the moment of the greatest period in her carreer.


  3. Hey David
    When you get your copy of that particular CD, please let me know where to order it so I can add this to my collection. Many thanks


  4. http://www.amazon.fr are selling the CD – it is where I ordered mine. The track is a great rare release on CD….I believe that the track is from a vinyl single, the masters for the Towerbell singles seem to be lost….or hidden in the vinyl vaults somewhere…
    The original Dalida version is also on CD1 of the set, with a selection of her other hits and greatest, CD2 features songs covered by other artists.
