From the archive # 71 -1969-

Today a newspaper announcement from 1969 for a Shirley Bassey concert that was shown on TV from Berns Restaurant in Stockholm (Sweden.)  Bassey was living as a tax exile in Switzerland at the time for two years and was not allowed to go to the United Kingdom so she worked abroad a lot. If you click the player below you can listen to the audio of the concert. Unfortunately we don’t have it on video.
