Biography

Britain's greatest pop diva, Dusty Springfield was also the finest white soul singer of her era, a performer of remarkable emotional resonance whose body of work spans the decades and their attendant musical transformations with a consistency and purity unmatched by any of her contemporaries; though a camp icon of glamorous excess in her towering beehive hairdo and panda-eye black mascara, ...

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Peter Durward Harris HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on May 18, 2003
Format: Audio CD
This compilation includes many of Dusty's sixties hits, plus some of her eighties comeback hits. However, it does not include any of her Springfield hits (Island of dreams in the UK, Silver threads and golden needles in the USA), nor does it include any of her seventies music, so it cannot be described as a career-spanning retrospective.
The set opens with Dusty's first solo hit, the classic I only want to be with you, although the songs are not presented in any particular order, least of all chronological - indeed, the second song, In private, was Dusty's last British top twenty hit (at least during her lifetime - you never know if there will be another on the back of a commercial or a movie).
Other classics here include I just don't know what to do with myself, Some of your loving, Going back, You don't have to say you love me, I close my eyes and count to ten, Losing you, In the middle of nowhere and Son of a preacher man, all of which reached the top ten in sixties Britain. Dusty's chart record was very different in America - Wishing and hoping, also included here, was a top twenty American hit but was never released as a single in Britain. Many lesser hits are also included.
Three notable covers are also here - Twenty-four hours from Tulsa, Anyone who had a heart and If you go away. Dusty recorded many covers, but these are among the best and certainly the equal of the original versions of these songs, perhaps even better.
The eighties are represented by In private, What have I done to deserve this (with the Pet shop boys) and Nothing has been proved, but the most recent song here is Wherever would I be, recorded in 1995.
There have been many Dusty compilations, but this is one of the strongest.

Dusty was probably one of the most under appreciated artist of the 60's. Her voice was strong and soulful and fantastic. I can't critique her, I am not a music specialist or anything like that, all I know is when Dusty was singing that's all you wanted in life.These songs bring back so many memories! I only wish I had had the chance to see her live.God rest, lovely woman.

I really first became aware of Dusty through her work with the Pet Shop Boys. It turned out that I was familiar with many of her earlier songs but I wasn't aware that it was her. I have enjoyed this disc and recommend it.

Very disappointing. Selection of songs not what I expected.
Not much else I can say about this CD as I do not have 20
ways of saying disappointing.
