FROM THE ARCHIVE 524 -1970-

The year 1970 meant a whole new era for Shirley Bassey. She recorded her best selling album Something which came with what we all know as the fabulous Something dress. The single Something was her biggest hit since Goldfinger. Shirley heard the song for the first time when she was in the USA and it was sung by Peggy Lee. She didn’t even know at the time it was written by the Beatles but immediately knew she wanted to record the song. Shirley also returned from Switzerland that year and recorded her Live At The Talk Of The Town album. Below also a radio interview from 1970.
