The "Goldfinger" theme song, however, had a lasting impact on her career. In the sleeve notes for Bassey's 25th Anniversary Album , Peter Clayton noted that: "Acceptance in America was considerably helped by the enormous popularity of "Goldfinger" But she had actually established herself there as early as , in cabaret in New York.
