A veteran of musicals, revues, and cabarets, Shirley Bassey was born to belt out larger-than-life torch ballads, and while she recorded many studio projects throughout her career, which began in 1959, she was most herself at center stage in front of an audience, where her powerful voice and presence made her the full performer. This set features two of Bassey's late-'70s studio LPs -- 1974's Martin Rushent
-produced and engineered Nobody Does It Like Me
, which is about as tamed down as Bassey ever got, and 1976's Love, Life and Feelings
-- combined in one package.
