Shirley Basset

Shirley Basset

Shirley Basset is known by her legion of dog fans as 'Basset the Belter.' She rose to fame in the 1960's with her massive hit, 'Big Spaniel'. She is perhaps most famous for her renditions of the 'James Bonzo' theme tunes, 'Goldpointer' and 'Dalmatians are Forever'. Basset started living as a tax exile in 1968 but returned after two years when she realised that dogs don't have to pay tax.
