Blonde Bombshell DIANA DORS is one of a handful of big-name, bill-topping "Hollywood Golden Era" actresses who were greatly underrated as singers, and as a result made very few records. Consequently her recorded legacy is minimal, running to little more than the sides gathered together on this set. This compilation is built around her highly-regarded LP "Swinging Dors", recorded for Pye Records in 1960, which has become a collectors' item over the ensuing years. Also included is another serious collectors' rarity, an earlier 78rpm single, 'I Feel So Mmm... ' / 'A Kiss And A Cuddle', from 1953, alongside a track from a 1955 musical comedy, and five live performances from 1950s U. S. television shows. A special "bonus track" features the soundbed to a short 1956 television interview with Bob Hope, on American TV. This is a wholly unique compilation as this body of work has never been thus collated before, while the live TV performances have never previously appeared on CD.
