Stars on 45RPM: Far Away / My Faith by Shirley Bassey (Columbia, 1962)

Here's another retro vinyl 45RPM find, again from Shirley Bassey, discovered in a charity shop box of singles in Narberth last week (The same shop I found the Norrie Paramor LP).

Far Away was a Lionel Bart composition from the musical Blitz!. No doubt Shirley was hoping to emulate the success of her 1960 hit As Long As He Needs Me, another Bart composition from Oliver!.

However, Far Away coupled with My Faith  only reached No.24 in the charts, although for 1962 that was still a lot of copies sold to reach that position in the charts!
