Editorial Reviews

Unquestionably Britain's greatest female vocalist, Dusty Springfield made some of the finest recordings of the sixties. Dusty Springfield: Once Upon A Time 1964 - 1968 features 20 complete songs filmed from 1964 to 1969 and has all of her greatest hits and more. Included on the DVD are her early classics I Only Want To Be With You , Wishin' And Hopin' and I Just Don't Know What To Do With My Self as well as timeless hits Son Of A Preacher Man , The Look Of Love and You Don't Have To Say You Love Me.

In between the performances, Dusty's story is told through new interviews with Burt Bacharach, singer Madeline Bell (who sang back-up for Dusty in the `60s) and Simon Bell (who sang back-up for Dusty from the 70s through the 90s) filmed exclusively for the DVD as well as Dusty herself via a newly discovered, previously unseen biographical interview from 1978. The bonus features include Dusty's complete 1965 and 1966 New Musical Express Poll Winners Concert appearances as well as a duet with Burt Bacharach on A House Is Not A Home. This DVD is one of the first four releases in the British Invasion series and is also sold as part of the British Invasion Boxset along with Gerry & The Pacemakers, Small Faces and Herman's Hermits DVDs.

Format: DVD
This is an absolute must to own DVD for all Dusty fans out there, the next most essential Dusty DVD after the classic "Live at the BBC". Apart from memorable contributions from the ever reliable Madeline Bell etc, snippets of a newly discovered American interview from 1978 (why in black and white...and not the whole thing ?), short never before seen bursts of live video footage of Dusty at the airport, etc, we get some of the best and perfectly restored performance clips available commercially.

Highlights for me include a flawlessly performed (non-double tracked) live rendition of "All Cried Out" from Ed Sullivan Show (1965), "I Close My Eyes And Count To Ten" from Jones the Voice (1968), "Son Of A Preacher Man" from Ed Sullivan Show (1968), "Brand New Me" from David Frost Show (1969) and full performances from the 1965 and 1966 NME Poll Concerts, bits of which may be familiar to many of us but never before seen in their glorious entirety. Watch Dusty close with "Shake" on the 1966 concert - hip, soulful...great stuff. "A House Is Not A Home" (1970) accompanied by Burt Bacharach on piano and beautifully sung is now considered - even by the self critical Dusty herself - as a perfectly delivered live performance she could be proud of.

Disappointments, there are a few but only in terms of regrettable omissions. Why didn't they license her powerful and energetic live take of "Stay Awhile/I Only Want To Be With You" from the Ed Sullivan Show (1964) instead of using the mimed Russ Conway and Australian Bandstand clips ? Or include the full 10 minute clip from Pop Spot (1964) which includes Dusty miming and dancing to "Can I Get A Witness" instead of using only "My Colouring Book" ?

Will this DVD play on any player? I notice the format is PAL. I thought most North American players were NTSC. I do see it's all regions, but the PAL designation has thrown me.

I'm totally confused....

I received an e-mail that said my order was cancelled because this item could not be obtained from any of Amazon sources...and now I'm asked to review it? I checked my order status and it says the item will ship after October 1. Huh?

I've usually had good results in dealing with Amazon, but this time I'm at a total loss.

Sorry, I wish I could have reviewed this DVD for you.
