Retro Vinyl: Golden Hits of Shirley Bassey (Columbia, SCX 6294, 1968)

Here's a vinyl album find from a few months back which I forgot to add to the Retrospace blog.

Released on Columbia Records in 1968 Golden Hits of Shirley Bassey (Columbia SCX 6294) brings together several singles recorded by Shirley Bassey.

Much of the content here, produced by Norman Newell was recorded between 1960 and 1966 but it didnt stop the album reaching Number 28 in the UK album charts.

Among the tracks featured were Goldfinger, As Long As He Needs Me, I Who Have Nothing and What Now My Love? There were also a couple of double A side releases which had proved their popularity over the years Climb Ev'ry Mountain / Reach For the Stars and With These Hands /The Party's Over.

The real cream of Shirley Bassey's early EMI years is represented well on this compilation and features a pretty snazzy 1960s style cover with Shirley's image in the middle surrounded by titles of the featured tracks.
