Art of the Cover - Diana Dors' "Swingin Dors"

 


A stunning shot of delectable, double-D doll Diana Dors, poured into the tightest dress in the world, adorns this great collection!

Fondly remembered as Britain's best-loved blondebombshell and as synonymous with 50s' glamour as a pink Cadillac, one-time Rank starlet Diana Dors was more than just a buxom pin-up. 

With an astonishing ability to reinvent herself and move with the times, post-Hollywood, the 60s and 70s saw Dors develop into one of the UK's most respected character actresses, with gritty stage and TV roles.

She also had a chat show, wrote several books and even had a spell as a GMTV agony aunt under her belt.





This album - recorded for Pye at the height of her cabaret and TV show popularity - reveals that she was also a gifted vocalist and worthy of the admiration she enjoyed throughout her career.

Featuring delightful instrumentation from Wally Stott & His Orchestra, this album was originally released in 1960.

The collection was wonderfully remastered in 2007.
