Love Life and Feelings est le vingt et unième album studio de Shirley Bassey, sorti en 1976. Il est classé no 13 au UK Albums Chart[2] et remporte un disque d'argent un mois et demi après sa sortie avec plus de 60 000 exemplaires vendus[3] mais se classe moins bien au Billboard 200 (no 149).

L'album contient la chanson What I Did for Love, extraite de la comédie musicale Chorus Line de Marvin Hamlisch qui avait remporté neuf Tony Awards l'année précédente ; The Way I Want to Touch You de Captain & Tennille ; You've Made Me So Very Happy, un tube de la Motown de 1967 ; Alone Again (Naturally) de Gilbert O'Sullivan, qui était resté six semaines no 1 au Billboard Hot 100 en 1972 et Feelings, un hit international de l'année précédente.

Par contre, aucun des deux singles de chansons italiennes (paroles anglaises de Norman Newell) Natalì (UP 35837, avec Runaway en face B) et Born to Lose (UP 36007, avec Can't Take My Eyes Off You en face A) n'entre au hit-parade.

Love Life and Feelings sort en 33 tours avec une pochette signée Richard Avedon, cassette audio et cartouche stéréo, puis est réédité par BGO Records avec Nobody Does It Like Me en double disque compact en 2006.

  1. (en) « Love Life and Feelings », dans Billboard, 21 août 1976 :

    « One of the superb adult-MOR chanteuses who has developed a fanatic core of admirers in this country but never yet found a vehicle to break out into the Top 40 mainstream, Bassey comes in with another stunning, showy example of the art of easy listening at its best. Her big but flexible voice drains the interior meanings out of a well-chosen set of songs that have already mostly been hits for soft-rockers. A tour now with the likes of Mathis or Mancini might well be the soundest vechicle for extending her audience now, or perhaps a summer tv series would do the trick. Best cuts: The Hungry Years, Isn't It A Shame, If I Never Sing Another Song. »
