In 1970 EMI Odeon in Spain released a series of compilation. albums in called ‘Gigantes De La Cancion’. Translated into English it means ‘Giants of the song’. There were 30 albums issued and the compilation album of Shirley’s recordings was ‘Vol 5’.
The album consisted of 12 tracks and all were taken from Shirley’s Columbia recordings. Obviously included were some of her hits such as ‘Goldfinger’ and ‘What Now My Love’ there others which were popular with fans. These included ‘Till’ and ‘Somewhere’. The cover photo on the sleeve was the photo used on Shirley’s UA album ‘I’ve Got A Song For You’. The reverse of the sleeve carries the same photo but in black/white and lists the tracks and also all the 30 artists in the series.
EMI Odeon also decided to release the abum as a special club edition with a completely different sleeve. The record itself carries the same title although there is no title on the sleeve. The tracks are in the same order as on the original album. Printed on the record label is ‘Edición especial para DISCOLIBRO’.
I’m not sure why but the record company also released the album under the title ‘The Giants’. The album sleeve is just the same as the original album. It also has the same catalogue number.
