This is Dusty Springfield's fantastic 1978 comeback album. After a 4 year hiatus from solo work, Dusty came back with a vengeance with this wonderfully eclectic (if a tad overproduced) album. The opening song, "Turn Me Around" will stop you cold..especially the first 10 seconds of the track. The emotional intesity of "Checkmate" (a funky mid-tempo written by Nona Hendryx from Labelle), the subdued sadness of Barry Manilow's "Sandra" and the funky disco beat of "That's The Kind of Love I've Got For You" all come together on one album. Nobody else could have carried off such a wide range of styles in one album but Dusty. And carry it off she does, with a lovely voice, obviously not as strong as it was in its late 60s/early 70s hey day, but in exchange, with a knowing knew found maturity that really sparkles.
Roy Thomas Baker (famous for producing lots of Queen's work) goes a bit overboard when trying to reign in the White Queen of Soul. Lots of double-tracking of her voice (which sounds quite good actually in places...) and arrangements are a bit too busy and occasionally hinder what is perhaps the most beautiful voice in 20th century pop music.
Overall, an excellent album that has criminally not been available on CD until now.
A must for Dusty Springfield fans and a pleasure for those who enjoy good pop singing with an eclectic stylistic mix.
My favorite track is "I Found Love With You". While probably considered a throw away by many, I find it sweet, to the point, and just so wonderful. Dusty sounds so happy to be there.
And that is all this longtime fan needs to hear.

5.0 out of 5 stars Starting over January 27, 2004
By Jake Z
Format:Audio CD
This 1978 release was Dusty Springfield's first album since 1973's CAMEO, or if you count it, the unreleased 1974 (intended) album "Longing", which they believed would have killed her career. She went through some personal problems between those albums, but she came back in top form with this release.
The album opens with the wonderful "Turn Me Around", which was intended for the LONGING album. She does a great job on Nona Hendryx's "Checkmate". Another notable cover song on here is her cover of Barry Manilow's "Sandra", which sounds better from a woman's perspective, with Dusty's warm vocals. The album is a bit overproduced, but has some fine vocals from Dusty. The album was produced by Roy Thomas Baker. I enjoy the ballads a lot on this disc, such as "Love Me By Name", "I'd Rather Leave While I'm In Love", and "Hollywood Movie Girls".
There's some nice album filler like "I Found Love With You". I don't particularily like her version of "A Love Like Yours", which was originally done by Martha and the Vandellas. The album closes with a disco ditty called "That's The Kind of Love I Got For You", in it's original form and a 12" extended mix. It's a nice song, a bit obscure on here but memorable. Overall a fine album, probably the best of her 70's work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dusty Returns... August 31, 2010
Format:Audio CD
After the sessions for the ill-fated album LONGING were regretfully abandoned in 1974, Dusty Springfield withdrew almost completely from music, severing her contract with ABC/Dunhill and disappearing from the public eye. Aside from one-off background work for Anne Murray and Elton John, Dusty spent the next 3 years battling personal issues. In 1977, she signed with United Artists Records and returned to the studio. The single-only "Let Me Love You Once Before You Go" was released to test the waters. Several months later, Dusty returned with IT BEGINS AGAIN, her first new release in 5 years.

This is not the Dusty springfield of yore. On IBA, Dusty works hard to project a new, modern image: confident, mature, classy with a feminist edge. This image reveals itself both in the photos for the album (a sophisticated Dusty in soft focus) and in the grooves. In a somewhat unusual pairing between Dusty and fellow Brit producer Roy Thomas Baker (at the time best known for his work with Queen), IBA offers an interesting assortment of songs, some harking back to her 1960's heyday, others with surprisingly contemporary sound and subject matter.

The album opens with Chi Coltrane's "Turn Me Around", which Dusty originally recorded for the aforementioned LONGING album. This is an updated arrangement, with a surprising amount of gloss and sheen. The change in Dusty's voice is also somewhat startling- she seems lighter...more delicate, more intimate. The contrast is actually very appealing, and "Turn Me Around" sets the tone for the album nicely.

Next up is Nona Hendryx's "Checkmate", a funky little song with Dusty giving a dynamic vocal. The production would've benefited from more of a rock sound- at times it borders on country, especially in the opening.

5.0 out of 5 stars ~Stellar vocals in great mix of songs~Bravo Dusty! January 18, 2004
Format:Audio CD
"It Begin's Again" one of the finest vocal treats to come out of musically bland seventies, would have been a blockbuster but radio didn't rise to the occasion of this awesome gem, only fans of the legendary singing wonder got to feast on a very fine set of varied songs by the greatest DIVA ever to come out of England! Thoughout this magnificent set Dusty earns "White Queen Of Soul" title big-time, in awesome form from opening to closing of "It Begin's Again", it should have never stopped for Dusty for those who had a long-time love affair with this magnificent singer. Vocal perfection from start to finish, tremendous collection of amazing performances should have been a "Grammy Award Winner" plus sold millions, the music industry shot themselves in the foot and blew it big time, masterwork yet another lost opportunity with this aggravating occurrence strangely plagued the stunning singers brilliant career over and over, all started with infamous "Free Press" interview where Dusty discussed being gay, airplay & hits stopped at that exact time so clearly no matter how great her output there was no exposure in America through to the end of her life. Dusty was let down by shocking and ignorant indifference from the MUSIC INDUSTRY in general, especially "Radio Programmers of America" for reasons quite obvious, this once in a lifetime talent being one of the finest ever, totally sumptuous collection easily filled with a number of memorable TOP TEN hits, now thankfully for all lovers of a great voice to savor and enjoy...opening smokey voiced with hypnotic "TURN ME AROUND", DUSTY in great form in this soulful ballad followed by NONA HENDRYZ gem "CHECKMATE" a frenied rocker with Dusty in intense & wildly soulful form!
