There have been so many lame Bond songs in recent years … like when will the Bond producers realise there is only ONE TRUE BOND GIRL and her name is Shirley Bassey. In an ideal world, you’d sing ALL the Bond theme tunes.

Dear Dame Shirley”The Living Tree “is amazing. It’s your best yet. Here’s wishing you a beautiful weekend ……..

I have been listening to DSB almost exclusively since THREE American Idol contestants chose to sing Shirley Bassey songs two weeks ago during “British Invasion” week.
It just proves that Shirley Bassey is as well loved, as relevant and revered as she was four decades ago! Rock on, DSB. You rule now, more than ever.
Peace, Ste

Dear Shirley!….When I was so young, I got the album exactly from London(my aunt studied there)and when I was listening it I fell in love in all your songs…It was early 70s…
But the most of them I prefer “All by myself”!…Today, I’ve got your CDs…You still look like so lovely and passionately, and so sing!….
I’m honored to be a part of your space!…I’m waiting for your new album!…hugs, Sanja

Without a doubt. Shirley, you are the one and only voice that comes from a time when people really sang, and to a time when you still show them how it’s to be done. Congratulations dear girl on your 70th! Keep being and showing! Much love and respect to you.

we were delighted to hear your new song. Certainly the most epic song you’ve been given for a long while, it is the essence of Basseyness and the best thing we’ve heard for a long time!

I am so happy to be connected to such a wonderful team that actually writes and understands what human contact is all about. What more can one say other than once a lady, always a lady. I have been blessed to know Ms. Bassey’s work since I was a little girl and now I am singing professionally myself.
What a gift to have such an amazing artist bless my life.
I hope that there’ll be a show or two over this way so I can sit right in front!
Sending beautiful thoughts and + vibes from Paris. Brigitte

Dame Shirley, I like very much your song The Living Tree. You have an incredible voice!
