SHIRLEY BASSEY'S DUNDEE DATA


"A magnificent audience. A magnificent hall & magnificent acoustics.
My first time here. I hope it will not be the last"
This is what Shirley Bassey wrote in the Caird Hall visitors book on 19th May 1972.
Then on the next page we have...
"Here I am again as promised" - yes Shirley returned the following year and signed the book once more on 20th November 1973.
Shirley Bassey also has a creative connection with Dundee, when back in the 80's, Associates singer, Billy MacKenzie composed a song for her.
The recording was called "The Rhythm Divine".
This was a classy slow moody groove with a polished production and was made in Switzerland by Yello.
