Shirley Bassey: Reach For The Stars - 50 Greatest Hits (2-CD)

(MusicTales) 50 tracks
Shirley Bassey was born on January 8, 1937 in Cardiff, Wales. Besides her work she sang in pubs and clubs in her home country where she was discovered by an agent.

Already her first single -Burn My Candle- (1956) sold very well, although the BBC did not play it because of the lyrics. In 1957 she had her first charter success with -The Banana Boat Song- (place 8). After two more hits in the same year, Shirley Bassey reached the first place of the British charts with -As I Love You-. With -Kiss Me, Honey Honey, Kiss Me- (1958, No. 3) and -As Long As He Needs Me- (1960, No. 2) she achieved two further top positions. In 1961 Shirley Bassey was able to conquer the top of the charts twice. Both -Reach For The Stars- and -Climb Ev'ry Mountain- climbed to number 1 in the British charts. -What Now My Love-, the English version of the Gilbert Bécaud classic -Et maintenant- stayed in the charts for seventeen weeks in 1962 (number 5).

In the 60s and 70s, Shirley Bassey became known outside of England primarily for her James Bond theme songs.

"Shirley Bassey"
Pop-Primadonna wird sie genannt, oder Stimmvulkan, oder Tigerin. Es trifft auf sie zu, wenn auch nicht immer nur Superlative für sie zu gebrauchen sind. Sicher, sie hat ihre Fans, die bei allem, was sie macht, beglückt begeistert lauschen und sehen, aber andererseits bietet sie in ihren Shows nicht eben viel Neues: Man weiß ungefähr, was als nächstes kommt. Aber sie hat gelernt, sich zu verkaufen, ihre Show so an das Publikum zu bringen, dass dieses von ihr total eingefangen wird. Gelernt in den verräucherten walisischen Kneipen, in denen sie als 16jährige vor Bergarbeitern sang, gelernt auf den kleinen Wanderbühnen und in den Vorstadttheatern Londons, den Klubs, die der Anfang, aber auch das Ende einer musikalischen Entwicklung sein können. Shirley war hartnäckig, nahm Gesangs- und Schauspielunterricht - man merkt ihr heute auf der Bühne den Hang zu dramatischer Schauspielerei an. Dann erhielt sie die einmalige Chance, den Song, der sie weltbekannt machte: Die Titelmelodie des Filmes „Goldfinger'. Das war 1964. Seitdem ist sie systematisch zur „Pop-Primadonna' aufgebaut worden, und sie trägt diese „Bürde' mit Würde, nämlich mit der Würde einer Frau, die weiß, was sie kann, und die weiß, dass sie ihrem Millionenpublikum auf der ganzen Welt dieses Können zur Unterhaltung darbietet.
