This is a new release that is available to pre-order from Amazon UK which they say is due out on 2nd September. I’ve actually bought a copy of it today so it must be released already. The DVD is the ‘Divas Are Forever’ which is already easily available. I’ve no idea what the quality of the DVD is like as I’ve not played it.
The CD is an edited version of this concert. Having quickly played it the quality sounds very good. All the songs are on the CD, it’s the applause that’s edited and any chat etc is not included. There are 15 tracks, the same as on the DVD. Listening to her sing ‘I Want To Know What Love Is’ sent shivers down my back! It may not be an interesting release but at least it’s something for this 60th Anniversary year that hasn’t been released on CD at all. Good to get a release at all as the major labels do not seem interested in doing anything to commemorate it. It’s comes as a digipak and there are two colour photos of Shirley inside and looks really quite nice. Very good value too for around the £6.00 mark.
