Yesterday When I Was Young

The Royal Variety Performance 1971

Today we are playing Yesterday When I Was Young one of the favourite songs of our dear fellow Dame Shirley fan Jean who we sadly lost almost 12 years ago. She will be remembered by us forever and we still miss her very much. Lots of material we use for this blog comes from her and is given to us by her sister Audrey who is also a long time Dame Shirley Bassey fan.
