Performer Notes
  • Recorded live at Castle Howard, England on July 19th, 1997 and Althorp Park, England on July 26th, 1997.
  • THE BIRTHDAY CONCERT was nominated for the 1999 Grammy Award for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Performance.
  • Contains 25 tracks.
  • Contains 24 track.
  • The brassy '60s belter Shirley Bassey, Britain's delayed answer to Lena Horne, recently celebrated her 60th birthday with a series of outdoor concerts, of which THE BIRTHDAY CONCERT draws from two. "Goldfinger," a smash hit in 1965, isn't included here but she performs her other big, bad James Bond theme "Diamonds Are Forever" with suitable brio.
  • Bassey's speciality is a slightly menacing Euro power ballad, with her primo version of Lieber & Stoller's adapted Italian hit "I (Who Have Nothing)" a choice example. Bassey is also a large enough musical personality to straddle the parallel worlds of Broadway and rock with ease. The Beatles' "Something" and "Hey Jude" actually benefit from her outsize approach and Foreigner's " I Wanna Know What Love Is" was pretty "outsized" to begin with. To bring matters further up to date, a disco-inflected version of Chris Rea's "La Passionne" reveals this all-out entertainer to be a proto-Grace Jones, sharing the same stern, declamatory style, but strangely satisfying in the end.
