Released in Greece on the EMI label this is a 12 track compilation album called ‘Mega Portrait’. There is no year on the record for when it was issued.
The 12 tracks are from Shirley’s Columbia recordings. Not surprisingly it includes some of her big hits from that label including ‘Goldfinger’, ‘As Long As He Needs Me’ and ‘I (Who Have Nothing)’. I’ve always wondered why ‘Reach For The Stars’ which was a double sided No 1 hit for Shirley along with ‘Climb Every Mountain’ isn’t included in many compilation albums. When it is then the single release version is very rarely used (as far as I know never on a vinyl album at all). Once again it isn’t included on this album. A nice album with a portrait of Shirley used instead of a photograph.
