Today a few newspaper articles from 1982. A year with ups and downs. Shirley Bassey had a serious health issue but recovered just in time before the recording of the TV Show A Special Lady. One of the few shows ever released on DVD. The year mentioned on the cover of the DVD is not correct. The DVD was released in 1983. Another TV special recorded that year was the Summertime Special. Also that year the album and single All By Myself were released although in some countries the album was named Love Songs. Her tour that year had to be postponed because of the medical problems Shirley had. We saw her at the Royal Albert Hall that year and she looked and sounded fantastic.
