Shirley bassey and we were lovers

And We Were Lovers is a 1967 studio album by Shirley Bassey. The album featured Bassey's first recording of "Big Spender', the single subsequently hit #21 on the charts.


And We Were Lovers was recorded in America and in England. The American release replaced "On a Clear Day You Can See Forever" with "Walking Happy", which was not available in the UK until the release of a compilation album The Shirley Bassey Collection II in the mid-1970s. A different version of "Big Spender", produced by Kenneth Hume and arranged by Marty Paich, also appeared only on the US issue. These two recordings are included as bonus tracks on a 2005 BGO Records release that has a remastered And We Were Lovers and I've Got a Song for You on a single CD in stereo.
