"I PURCHASED SEVERAL SHIRLEY BASSEY CD'S-THEY BRING BACK HAPPY TIMES WITH MY WIFE WHO IS NOW DECEASED. I RECENTLY HAVE BEEN DIAGNOSE WITH A TERMINAL CANCER AND THE HAPPY MEMORIES MISS BASSEY BRINGS ARE BETTER THAN MOST PAIN PILLS. I KNOW THAT THIS IS REALLY NOT A REVIEW IN THE STRICTEST SENSE, BUT YOU SHOULD KNOW THAT "RECORDS" FROM YEARS AGO CAN BE TREASURED. THANK YOU"

""I, Capricorn" opens this stunning collection with all of the haunting brilliance that is typical of a great Bassey performance in an absolutely magical musical surrounding...classic collection was released in 1972 the same year Miss Bassey graced us with her regal presence in a sold-out tour-de-force concert at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles which found her in incredibly great form as featured here in this awesome set! A winning sensual "The Look Of Love" and a hauntingly beautiful "The Way A Woman Loves" find Shirley in peak form weaving vocal magic in glorious settings created by arranger Johnny Harris who is Miss Bassey's greatest collaborator. John Lennon"s "Love" is soft and warm while the classic Cy Coleman/Dorothy Fields "Where Am I Going" becomes a powerful anthem showing a versatile singer whose musical scope is as wide open as that great voice. Beautiful and passionate "I've Never Been A Woman Before" is mesmerizing while the theme song from "Lovers And Other Strangers", "For All We Know" is definitive. Two powerful 70's Diva performances is first the moving "The Greatest Performance Of My Life" from Nancy Wilson and the other of course is from Shirley!! This magnificent ballad has always been a highlight in the concerts of Miss Wilson and Miss Bassey with both giving the performance of a lifetime with this stirring ballad. Stellar performances from two Broadway Classics "Where Is Love?" and "Losing My Mind" make one long for another Bassey Broadway Album as it certainly would be a masterpiece. A beautiful "One Less Bell To Answer" is followed by the stormy and magnificent "Lost And Lonely" which is Shirley Bassey at her devastating best!!! Grab this one while it is available as an Import if you love the Art Of Great Singing at its finest! BRAVO SHIRLEY...you are incredible!!!"
