This Shirley Bassey two-fer from Beat Goes On includes 1975's Good, Bad but Beautiful and 1973's Never Never Never as a two-disc set. Renditions of the "Way We Were" and "Send in the Clowns" aside, most folks know Bassey as the powerful pipes behind the themes to the James Bond classics Goldfinger, Diamonds Are Forever and Moonraker, so a best-of like Capitol's Greatest Hits or the exhaustive five-disc box set EMI/UA Years 1959-1979 would be a better place to start. ~ James Christopher Monger
