|Shirley Bassey chronology|
Something Else is a 1971 album by Shirley Bassey.
Following-up her comeback album Something, this proved to be almost as big when it too made the UK top 10, peaking at No.7. The album contained the hit single "(Where Do I Begin?) Love Story" as well as a non-charting second release "Breakfast in Bed". The success of this album and Shirley Bassey in general at this period saw a rush of compilations and older albums entering the UK charts in late 1971, with five albums appearing over the space of three months. In 1972, Bassey was the subject of This is Your Life where guest Liberace made mention of this album and in particular "Excuse Me".
In France, the album was released as Love Songs with an alternative sleeve and also featured the song "For All We Know". Something Else was released on vinyl and cassette in stereo. It was re-issued on CD in 1999 by EMI with two bonus tracks; "For the Love of Him" was originally the B-side of "(Where Do I Begin) Love Story", while "Vehicle", recorded in February 1971, remained unreleased until 1994.
