AllMusic Review by

A veteran of musicals, revues, and cabarets, Shirley Bassey was born to belt out larger-than-life torch ballads, and while she recorded many studio projects throughout her career, which began in 1959, she was most herself at center stage in front of an audience, where her powerful voice and presence made her the full performer. This set features two of Bassey's late-'70s LPs, 1976's Thoughts of Love and 1979's The Magic Is You, and both have the same 12" disco mix of "This Is My Life" tacked on at the end of each LP's sequence as a bonus track, so it appears twice in exactly the same version.
