Liner Note Author: Jerry McCulley.

Recording information: Abbey Road Studio, No. 1, London, England (1959).

Arrangers: Rita Williams; Michael Collins .

A veteran of musicals, revues, and cabarets, Shirley Bassey was born to belt out larger-than-life torch ballads, and while she recorded many studio projects throughout her career, which began in 1959, she was most herself at center stage in front of an audience, where her powerful voice and presence made her the full performer. This set is a reissue of the London studio cast recording of Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein's classic musical Show Boat, which featured Bassey in the starring role. ~ Steve Leggett
