In 1972 Shirley Bassey recorded the Albums I Capricorn & And I Love You So. Readers Digest released a box of 6 LPs called Something Wonderful and below you can listen to an interview with the New Scottish Radio Orchestra.

  1. Hi Pieter,
    I wonder what kinda recordings these are? Are they live-recordings with the applause faded out or for that time being new recordings of the songs from both albums. For sure, they’re not the recordings as we know them. Timing and phrasing differ so to speak..
    Maybe you know more. Thanks so much, Pieter for all your work! Avec une grande accolade!


  2. In the meantime I found out that these recordings were part of a so-called studio concert she did with the Scottish orchestra… Sounds odd not hearing applause after this live-recording though, but a great post this is! Thanks again, Pieter!
