Rai uno -The Italian television performances- part 9


From 1968 to 1971 during her marriage to her Italian husband, Shirley Bassey did a few performances for the Italian television.

Today the another performance in English from 1968: To Give.

Dal 1968 al 1971, Shirley Bassey appare a Rai Uno.

Quando lei si e’ sposata con il suo marito italiano, lei ha fatto un tour per tutto il paese per avvicinarsi ai suoi fans itialiani. Lei ha prodotto 11 canzoni in italiano e Norman Newell ha trovato anche nella radio italiana alcuni dei suoi grandi successi tali “Natali” e “La Vita” (This is my life).”

  1. Spectacular! This is a little known song and I’m not sure DSB even has a connection to the lyric. But she’d never let a little thing like that stop her. The image of her, her back to the audience as she sashays to the mic like a champion prizefighter taking his position in the ring, all while the orchestra revs up and begins to roar, is completely breathtaking. A moment of high drama, climaxing in a vocal explosion that is unrivalled in popular music. Quintessential Bassey! Pieter this is an ace share. Thank you.
