• Shirley BASSEY - As I Love You, 1956 - 1958

The Iconic Dame Shirley Bassey, DBE, is probably the most famous female singer to have emerged from the UK.

This unique 2-CD set anthologises her earliest recordings for the UK Philips label between 1956 - 58 and features her first UK No. 1 'As I Love You'. Other hits included are 'The Banana Boat Song', 'Fire Down Below', 'You, You Romeo' and 'Kiss Me, Honey Honey Kiss Me'.

Also available here are a pair of real collectors rarities, via her controversial live EP 'Live At The Café De Paris' and her debut LP 'Born To Sing The Blues'. These are truly historic recordings, many of which are notoriously hard to find elsewhere on CD.
