This is the second interview for Australian tv. from 1988. Shirley Bassey speaks about her 18th. trip to Australia
Already in 1976 there were rumours about Shirley going into retirement. I wrote Shirley a letter to ask her if the rumours were true and this was the answer:
In 1984 there was a “Farewell tour” through Australia but Shirley came back in 1992 for another tour. She was promoting her new album at the time “Keep the music playing”.
Here is the first of three interviews for the Australian television
Some of the songs Shirley Bassey performed on All About Shirley (Show of the Week 1972) were released in Germany on an LP. called ‘Gut gestimmt’. By clicking the players below you can listen to the songs in good quality stereo.
‘All about Shirley’ is a British-German documentary filmed by the BBC in 1972. The recordings took place in the studio in Germany (Hamburg) and in Sardinia (Italy) where Shirley had her second home at the time named “Tiger Bay” in Porto Rotondo at the Costa Smeralda in Sardinia Italy.
