In a spectacular career, which is about to achieve its sixtieth anniversary, Wales' most celebrated export, SHIRLEY BASSEY, has racked up countless hit records. However, she registered most of her biggest hit singles in the early years of her recording career, which are anthologised in this special 2-CD 8200;set, which features all her As and B-sides between 1956-62, together with popular tracks drawn from her various hit LPs and EPs over this same period. Features her U.K. #1s 'As I Love You', 'Reach For The Stars' and 'Climb Ev'ry Mountain', alongside other major hits like 'The Banana Boat 8200;Song', 'Kiss Me, Honey, Honey, Kiss Me', 'As Long 8200;As He Needs Me', 'You'll Never Know', 'I'll Get By', 'Tonight', 'Far Away', 'What Now My Love', etc, and many more. Also includes standout tracks from the hit albums "The Fabulous Shirley Bassey" (e.g. 'Cry Me A 8200;River'), "Shirley" (e.g. 'All At Once'), "Shirley Bassey" (e.g. 'Till') and "Let's Face The Music" (e.g. 'All Of Me', 8200;and the ubiquitous title track). The body of recorded work featured herein is essentially what Bassey built her considerable reputation upon, and ultimately became the benchmark which defined her subsequent recording career. Although now in her late 70s, Bassey continues to record regularly and her live performances are invariably sell-outs - she famously stole the show at Glastonbury in 2007.
