Diamonds Are Forever - Remixes

CD (Item 639138) EMI (France), 1960s/2000 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

Pretty darn wonderful! We've always dug the 60s work of Shirley Bassey – and we can remember how her brassy vocals first thrilled us when we were kids sitting up to watch Goldfinger on the late show – but now the great one's majestic voice has been wonderfully remixed in a tasty batch of tracks designed to take Shirley into the next century! The set's way way better than we expected – and instead of just cutting Shirley's original tracks to bits, the remixers have been very sensitive to the original groove, adding in funky beats at just the right parts, and giving the tunes lovely flourishes like extra keyboards, funky sample riffs, and some nicely compressed instrumentation. Sure to please both fans of Shirley's classic work and lovers of recent loungecore remix projects – and solid all the way through. "Light My Fire" is remixed by Kenny Dope, "Where Do I Begin" remixed by Team, "Goldfinger" remixed by Propellerheads, "Easy Thing To Do" remixed by Nightmares On Wax, "Diamonds Are Forever" remixed by Mantronix, "Spinning Wheel" remixed by DJ Spinna, and "If You Go Away" remixed by DJ Skymoo. A wonderful way to get Shirley's old catalog going again!  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible. All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.

Beautiful later stuff from Sarah! Although it's easy to think that she "sold out" by making albums like this for Roulette – with a larger backing than before, and more of a pop feel – these albums are also incredible, and feature a sophisticated sense of interpretation we ... CD

One of the few albums that singer Annie Ross cut on her own away from the Lambert, Hendricks, & Ross group while she was still living in the US – and a great little set recorded with a group led by Gerry Mulligan! The sound is west coast cool all the way through – with players who ... CD

A great album, and one in which Nat King Cole returns to his roots as a jazz singer! The session differs greatly from Nat's other schmaltzy ones from the time, and it features a very "after midnight" sound – with Nat playing and singing backed only by a small combo that includes ... CD

Mack Avenue, 2017. Used 2 CDs
That's quite an unusual cover for a jazz vocal album – but then again, Cecile McLorin Salvant is quite an unusual singer – and one who may well be out to change the future of her genre with records like this! The songs are this fantastic blend of original compositions, jazz standards, ... CD

One of the few vocal albums on Blue Note's short lived 89000 series – and one of the only few ever cut by the obscure singer Dodo Greene! Green's got this raspy voice that's just great – somewhat fragile, but not in a wispy way – kind of honest and human, and somewhere in the ... CD
