I was first introduced to Shirley Bassey courtesy of the Propellerheads with "History Repeating" a few years ago but it wasn't until of recently when I caught a glimpse of the video "Where Do I Begin" (awayTEAM Mix) from the "Diamonds Are Forever: The Remix Album" that got my full attention. I can say that I am impressed with what I heard. Shirley Bassey can be truly called a "diva" since that word is being thrown around recklessly with more well known but overrated singers nowadays. When I listen to Shirley singing I hear attitude and spunk in her voice which I don't really hear with a lot of female vocalists today.
"Where Do I Begin" is my very favorite track off the remix cd, next to the DJ Skymoo Mix of "If You Go Away". I found it unusual yet compelling to hear Shirley Bassey's vocals be put to a trance beat in "If You Go Away". Her rendition of The Doors' "Light My Fire" is excellent, particularly the Kenny Dope mix. The Propellerheads' mix of "Goldraker" and Mantronik's Diamond Cut Club Mix of "Diamonds are Forever" are also good. A terrific remix album overall as is Shirley Bassey as a singer. She is truly a first class diva.

Before this album, I was only familiar with Shirley Bassey from the Bond themes she sang (Goldfinger, Diamonds Are Forever, and Moonraker). I was in a store not long ago and saw the import box set from France, the 10 track CD with a bonus three song CD. I loved it.
Naturally, I was VERY happy to see that all 13 tracks made in on to an American CD. There are certainly no misses on this album. One of my favorite mixes is Propellerhead's funk soundng mix of Goldfinger. Moloko (DJ Skymoo) does an intense, fast-paced mix of "If You Go Away." awayTeam adds a sort of hip-hop sound to "Where Do I Begin" with much success. Superfunk does a twangy mix of "Moonraker" with dialogue throw in at parts. Mantronik contributes two mixes of "Diamonds Are Forever" which seem to both preserve the original song and add a good deal of substance to it by making it sound more modern.
The new mixes seem to make Shirley Bassey's powerful voice stand out even more and give a new electronica spin to some old classics. It's definitely worth checking out and this particular CD is the best value for the money.

when i first spotted this cd at other music in nyc, it was as if the rest of the store's contents melted away in a shimmy and the only item to focus on was this magnificent cd. it will have its detractors; killjoys who decrie re-interpretation of classics that, of course, can never stand up against the originals based solely on their composition. however, this album is as much a tribute album as it is a re-interpretation. i don't think any of the artists harbor grand illusions that their remixes surpass the original songs. i strongly advise against buying this album without first familiarizing yourself with ms. bassey's original recordings (and i'm not talking propellerheads here folks). it's hard to appreciate these remixes without first recognizing the starting point of each artist. listening to each remix, the admiration and respect that each artist has for the incomparable vocals of shirley bassey and the horns and orchestration of john barry, is obvious. the most loving touches are provided by groove armada, awayTEAM, nightmares on wax, kenny dope, wild oscar and dj skymoo. these are the highlights of the album. where do i begin has been sampled before, most notably on the classic jungle album "jungle warfare" but awayTEAM are way beyond sampling. they pull away each all orchestration then slam it back in with shirley's powerful voice right as the hardest lyrics hit. wow... the propellerheads, who i neglected to give proper credit to above, stretch out shirley's voice into an arc that would make babs green with envy (i doubt we'll ever see a barbra streisand remix album...shudder...) set against crazy carribbean rhythms, goldfinger feels as if it were feel right at home in live and let die. kenny dope's light my fire is slow and deliberate, very sexy.Read more ›

"Diamonds Are Forever" is an album full of 60's-70's originals remixed with the beautiful voice of Miss Shirley Bassey. Shirley's voice just has that sound of mystery and intrigue. "Where Do I Begin (Away Team Mix)" is a pure classic remixed for the millenium. Another favorite is The Doors classic "Light My Fire (Kenny Dope Remix)" where Kenny Dope adds a tightly knit acid jazz feel to the original song. The Propellerheads and Mantronix also contribute keeping the John Barry sound alive in "Goldfinger" and "Diamonds are Forever".

I was ridiculed by my friends for buying this CD, until I made them listen to it. I have always loved Shirley Bassey, along with many other rock/soul/blues and jazz singers. This album takes the great works of Shirleys and brings them into a format for a newer generation to love and still wonderful for the people who loved the original works. As always Shirleys vocals are beautiful and the music it has been put to makes it a whole new experience. I reccomend this album to ANYONE who likes music.
