Shirley Bassey – Jezahel

It really has been a hell of a week and it’s been a while since I posted on the blog. After a few hours of sleep I drove to work bleary eyed only to be woken up and generally surprised by today’s track on the radio.

Many people know Shirley Bassey for her big theatrical vocals and tracks like diamonds are forever, but what some might not know is that she did some pretty funky tracks back in the 70s. I used to play her version of spinning wheel out quite a bit and it always got a great reaction.

But to be honest, I didn’t know that the huge horn sample sample for Public Enemy’s Harder Than You Think came from today’s track. Tremendous it is, so up it goes.
