Description

In the late ’70s Dame Shirley Bassey—the Welsh singer best known for singing the themes to the James Bond movies Goldfinger and Diamonds Are Forever— was given her own show on the BBC, hosted at various locations around the world. For the show’s second season in 1979, she headed to Little Pubs Open Air Disco in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. In this clip from that program, she performs a disco version of “This Is My Love,” walking through the crowd. If that’s not your thing, sit tight, ’cause it’s followed right up by an entrancing performance of “Cool Mediation,” the 1978 Third World hit sung by keyboardist Ibo Cooper. This one is definitely a trip…make sure you watch til the end to see Dame Shirley getting down with some enthusiastic members of the crowd. ( excerpts from Large Up )
