This 27-track collection of songs recorded by Shirley Bassey represents outstanding value in presenting several of her notable hits alongside a selection of enduring standards, all ideally tailored for the typical diva-style treatment so beloved by her legion of devoted fans. This album focused on her late 50s hits, presented together with her performances of such fine songs as Ted Koehler and Harold Arlen's melancholy "Stormy Weather" and Stan Lebowski Herb Newman's atmospheric "The Wayward Wind", also covered by such diverse artists as Tex Ritter, Frank Ifield, Bill Monroe and the Everly Brothers. She also reveals a talent for, and obvious love, of blues music with several songs from that genre included here.
