AllMusic Review by

This Disky collection includes 20 ballads from the first decade of Shirley Bassey's career, roughly the late '50s through the mid-'60s. The focus is on contemporary standards like "There Will Never Be Another You," "It Could Happen to You," "A House Is Not a Home," "Moon River," "I (Who Have Nothing)," and "Who Can I Turn To." The mood is melodramatic and the arrangements are similarly spacious, and this retrospective of her early career (read: before her global success) is well done.
