This Lady or should I say Dame has never made a bad L/P....just some are better than others...this one is a so so...that means its ok the first side is a bit on the slow side maybe because most of the tracks are not well known a couple are but it's Shirley in a subdued mood...the second side is much better with our Shirl definately being "Shirley Bassey"...And I just love the cover I think thats its a great photo...Thats one of the reasons I  bought the L/P !!
