I Am What I Am (Studio Version)

Firstly ignore the iTunes description which is for another album, NOT this one! The first 15 tracks were originally released as the album "I Am What I Am" in 1984 (Charted # 25) and feature the London Symphony Orchestra and Dame Shirley singing her greatest hits plus her new song at the time "I Am What I Am".

The rest of this collection features tracks from the albums "All By Myself/Love Songs" from 1982 (Charted # 48) and "Keep The Music Playing" from 1991 (Charted # 25). Oddly "Diamonds Are Forever" is the original version from 1972. There are some great versions of Bassey's own hits and her cover versions of great songs of the period, but it will be to personal taste which you prefer.
