For today’s blog we have the TV. commercial for The Diamond Collection from 1998. Produced by Colin Green, this album is mixed together from the two live concerts in England on July 19th 1997 in Castle Howard and on July 26th 1997 at Althorp Park. Shirley Bassey celebrated her 60th birthday with a series of concerts, of which this CD draws from the two open-air concerts. This album was nominated for the 1999 Grammy Award for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Performance. It does not contain all the songs Shirley sang at these concerts, for example “I Only Have Eyes For You” is missing on the recording. Most songs of this recording had already been released one year before on The Birthday Concert.

Tomorrow will be my last post for this month as I will be on holiday for a few weeks. Of course we will keep you informed if there is any news about Dame Shirley Bassey.
