Although this is an exceptional boxed set, I was a bit stunned to discover the LIVE disc included here was not the 2-LP Live At Carnegie Hall set, which is yet to be issed on CD. The live version here was from a 1963 concert, and her snappy, sassy one-liners belted between sets are gone. I was also surprised that "I CAPRICORN" was omitted from this boxed set. This singer is classy and stylish, and the DIVAS ARE FOREVER video proves that without a doubt. The booklet included here wasn't as picturesque as it could have been. I would have loved seeing original color album covers of all her LPs featured in the booklet. Overall, the boxed set excels, despite hefty price tag!! I'm stuck on Disc #3. Remastering gets a 10 !!

This is one great collection! I purchased it when it was first released and was quite impressed! The quality of the recordings are terrific as well as the booklet of liner notes. It's great to hear songs I haven't listened to in years and have them so beautifully reproduced on CD! What a treat! Run, don't walk to order this one. You have a real treat in store. As a long time Bassey afficienado, this is one of the best, most comprehensive of her EMI work. LOVE IT!
