One thought on “FROM THE ARCHIVE 457 -1969-”

  1. Thank you Pieter. I enjoyed this archive. Vocal recitation by the English girl Shirley Bassey. Interesting review by John Segraves. I know DSB knew Lena, and I am sure she would model some earlier performances after people she knew and admired such as Lena Horne, Dorothy Squires. I can just see the fumes if DSB read his critique. I am sure DSB took his feedback and may have made some professional adjustments to her cafe performances. Thanks Piet. 🐥
