Dusty Springfield is Britains greatest ever pop diva and the possessor of one of the finest and most soulful voices of all time. She dominated both the UK and US charts throughout the sixties with a string of hit singles that have stood the test of time as true classics. Originally a member of the folk trio The Springfields, from whom she took her stage name, she became a solo artist in 1963 after being exposed to the magic of Motown whilst playing in America and became probably the finest ever white soul singer. Diagnosed with breast cancer in the mid-nineties she died in 1999 at the age of just 59.
This concert, recorded at the Royal Albert Hall in 1979 in the presence of HRH Princess Margaret, captures Dusty at the height of her career. The show is packed with hits (including 9 UK top 10 singles), which are delivered with all the glitz and panache that were Dustys trademark and have made her a major gay icon as well as beloved of music fans everywhere.
As a bonus feature there is an extensive interview with Dustys long time manager, her friends and one of the backing singers from the Albert Hall show.
All of the existing visual footage from the concert has been used on this DVD, however there are additional tracks that exist as audio only and these are included on the companion CD release which is being simultaneously released on Eagle Records (ER 20081-2).

I must say I was not a big fan of Dusty Springfield at '60s although I did visit a lot of record stores for her song "You don't have to say you love me" which was sold out quickly. Read morePublished on January 28, 2013 by Charicefanatic
