Dusty Springfield never claimed to be a soul singer, but Dusty in Memphis effects a unique and deeply moving synthesis of her brand of stylish pop and the Southern R&B of the late '60s. Her soft tones and hushed, confessional readings make for definitive versions of everything from "Son of a Preacher Man" (a later version by Aretha Franklin is good but less thrillingly sensual than this one) to Randy Newman's ballads "I Don't Want to Hear It Anymore" and "Just One Smile" to a swirling take on "The Windmills of Your Mind." The soul obscurity "Breakfast in Bed" even gives a knowing spin to a line from an earlier Springfield classic: "You don't have to say you love me." This expanded edition features vastly improved sound and a number of bonus tracks not on the earlier CD. --Rickey Wright

Product Description

Not just Dusty's classic 1969 Atlantic album, but a full 14 bonus tracks!

Customer Reviews

This is one of the best collections of Dusty Springfield's work.
Lubin V. Prevatt
Dusty emotes so much feeling in these songs, you can hear the emotion in her voice, she expresses it so well.
J. M. Zuurbier
Just listen, and you will feel as if she is the only one who could ever reach you.

I rarely use the word "sublime" to describe anything, but it seems a perfect word for this album. In light of today's top 40 radio (which I'm sure leaves so much to be desired), it sounds insulting to label this album as pop music. But knowing that pop culture has the capability of being creative, meaningful, and even powerful (it really hasn't been since Madonna tried to buy it), this album has to be one of the absolute pinnacles of popular music.
The songs on this album are fantastic, and Dusty Springfield had one of the greatest voices to ever grace American pop music. Her voice is so soft and mellow, yet can grab and just galvanize you. She knows exactly when and how to emote, something today's pop singers seem completely clueless about. So warm and loving--wow. When she sings "I've got so much love", well, heck, you can feel it.
But I don't want to overemphasize Dusty, though. The arrangements and song selection on this record are as important as Dusty's gorgeous voice. It's really amazing that this stuff passed as mainstream pop music; it beats the pants off of anything ever put out by Celine, Whitney, etc. etc. etc. This is the kind of record they DREAM of having their names on (and always miss it by a huge longshot). Did we really have to drop horns and real instruments in order to make songs consumable to the general public nowadays??? It's so sad! But I digress...
Don't even think of buying anything less than the "Deluxe Edition" of this album!! A lot of re-releases these days include bonus tracks, but the bonus tracks here are not to be taken lightly.

I was 11 years old when the British Invasion brought Dusty Springfield a string of pop hits, and I thought she was just about the coolest thing on earth. I bought every one of her singles. But by the time this album came out in 1969, I was a teenager and thought I'd outgrown her music along with go-go boots and white lipstick. I wasn't even listening to Top 40 radio anymore by that time (preferring "underground" stations that played Joplin and Hendrix), so I didn't hear "Son of a Preacher Man" until it turned up on the oldies stations a couple of decades later.
But this album hung on. I kept hearing musicians I had a lot of respect for cite it as one of the masterpieces of the 60s, and thought I must be hearing wrong. Dusty Springfield? The girl with the big hair and inch-thick eyeliner?
Yeah. Dusty Springfield. I don't know if there's anybody left who still thinks of her as a lightweight pop singer, but if there is, give them this album. Among the 11 tracks that make up the original album are songs with some of the deepest, most soulful singing you've ever heard this side of Aretha Franklin. (Dusty's version of "Son of a Preacher Man" is even BETTER than Aretha's!) Not just "Preacher Man," but "So Much Love," "Don't Forget About Me," "No Easy Way Down" and "I Can't Make It Alone" are just pure, classic Memphis soul. And even when she takes on a song that couldn't really be described as "soul" like Randy Newman's moving ballad, "I Don't Want To Hear It Anymore," or the sly and sexy "Breakfast In Bed" she brings a soulfulness to them that they wouldn't have if anyone else did them.

I cannot praise either this album or Dusty Springfield enough. Listening to the first track alone, "Just A Little Lovin'" is enough to tell you that this woman knows and expresses everything there is to know about love. What's more, she does it with sublime subtlety: a wink and a sly smile as opposed to a modern so-called "Diva" like Whitney Houston, who'd bash you over the head. True style as opposed to gaudy excess. There's not a bad song on the album, and several true classics. But listen to it several times before you form a judgement: that subtlety needs time to work its magic and insinuate itself into your soul. I always thought "Windmills of Your Mind" was dreary 60's muzak until I heard her masterly epic version. And no matter how many times I hear it, chills go up my spine when she sings the words, "He don't really love her" in Randy Newman's "I Don't Want to Hear It Anymore". Hell, nobody can sing the word "baby" and express as many emotions through it as Dusty did. She is sorely missed!

I rushed out to get this disc on the day it was released and am not disappointed. This is just a perfect anytime, any mood CD. In my opinion it would be worth the buying price if only for the tunes 'Don't forget about me','Just one smile', The windmills of your mind' & of course the classic cut 'Son of a Preacher Man', but it has 14 bonus tracks that were not previously released. Dusty Springfield is an incredibly gifted and under-rated vocalist.Her song styling is at once seductive,strong and subtle. When I first heard the vocals begin on track #5, I actually got goosebumps! Her voice sends chills up my spine and this deluxe edition of 'Dusty in Memphis' is a prime example of why she is worthy of induction into the rock-&-roll hall of fame. This disc exemplifies her vocal range and interpretive skills beautifully. It is smooth and mellow, but never boring or slow. Turn the ringer off on the phone, brew a pot of tea and curl up with 'Dusty...' tonight. I think anyone that can appreciate good soul-felt vocals will enjoy this disc immensely.
