Regular price $23.98

Never Never Never / Good, Bad But Beautiful  (Two Albums On One CD)

By  Shirley Bassey 

Very Good Condition

This Shirley Bassey two-fer from Beat Goes On includes 1975's Good, Bad but Beautiful and 1973's Never Never Never as a two-disc set. Renditions of the "Way We Were" and "Send in the Clowns" aside, most folks know Bassey as the powerful pipes behind the themes to the James Bond classics Goldfinger, Diamonds Are Forever and Moonraker, so a best-of like Capitol's Greatest Hits or the exhaustive five-disc box set EMI/UA Years 1959-1979 would be a better place to start.

A Review:

With Shirley Bassey, it is difficult to select any one album or song as a "best" selection. This two disc album has some of her finest selections and will please anyone who likes easy listening music and appreciates a true vocal artist, without equal. Her rendition of "Never, Never, Never" was what attracted me to this album initially, as it seems to be the original recording and not the later ones such as with the London Symphony Orchestra. There is a sprinkling of old standards as well as the usual "never heard before" selections. All extremely worth listening to.

The standouts? - "Never, Never, Never," "Someone Who Cares," "Make The World a Little Younger," and "All in Love is Fair."
The ONE selection to listen to over and over? - The one that seems to have been written just for Dame Bassey? "Jesse." Soulful and plaintive. This one selection was worth the price of the albums.
