Overview

This compilation is an unusual double-CD set in the EMI Gold series, a sign of Bassey's longevity and depth of success with the label. The music is all remastered in state-of-the-art digital audio, and ranges freely across her career and pop music history, jumping from her 1966 rendition of "Fly Me to the Moon," back to 1959's "I've Got You Under My Skin" and "Cry Me a River," and forward through "Goldfinger" and "Send in the Clowns" on Disc One. Disc Two opens with "Starlight Express" and goes back to 1962's "Tonight." The disc moves from strength to strength, distilled down from the best of Bassey, with very few bases touched, and is legitimately two hours of delightful listening.
