  2. Shirley gives an interestingly different performance on `my way`, reflective, quiet almost, the voice so full of emotion. I actually like this spectacular gown. I well remember seeing her wear it at the BRIGHTON CENTRE on the 1979 tour. So many of the camera angles were awkward whereas in concert the gown is seen as intended in full length. It is easy to forget that SHIRLEY`S wigs hairstyles and gowns cover 61 years. She is expected to look spectacular on every occasion…. it must take some doing. One of my favourites was the green `see thru` as seen at the Royal Festival Hall, only ever seen a partial picture of that one.

    1. I think she looks better in this color than even pink really, or yellow. Don’t believe I’ve seen the green dress you speak of Terence. What year was the concert at the Royal Festival Hall if you remember my friend.
