A mixture of pop, jazz, blues, country and folk Instead of allowing her to change into the next incarnation Who knows what might have happened had this album been handled properly It was after all, voted as one of the "Greatest Albums of All Time" on several fronts!
Add this one to your collection if you haven't already done so If you're hearing this collection for the first time The ballads are killers! Close your eyes, and as you listen, hear the remnants of the tried and true Dusty combined with the new in a musical setting that cannot be described as anything short of astounding!
I assure you, you'll fall in love with her all over again. This is a terrible pressing, full of distortion. It's hard to listen to, I might end up getting rid of this entirely.
It's too bad, because the music itself is a gem, a beautiful blend of pop and soul, all about love and longing in the s. It's true the production is a bit rough: I believe the vocals were all re-recorded when Dusty returned from Memphis and due to the limits of audio engineering 50 years ago the vocals just aren't as well integrated with the musicians as they should be, and there is some background tape hiss.
But the quality of this pressing is just unforgivably bad. Buy the CD. Replace it, I thought. Amazon sent me another copy If you want Dusty in Memphis on vinyl, find an older pressing.
The track listing says there are 3 bonus tracks. See pic. Images in this review. I own over albums and It is in my top 10 list. This pressing by Four Men with Beards is cold, lacks dynamic range, and exhibits much higher than normal surface noise.
The casual listener might discern little difference compared to streaming sound quality, but that underscored the fault with this record. The deep ness one expect from vinyl is not present, and quieter parts of tracks are plagued with noise.
The best there is - AND a gift The best there is - AND a gift from Amazon! I couldn't ask for finer than Dusty Springfield , and it was an 'add on' item. Everyone on earth deserves to hear this amazing creature blow their speakers out - this CD even made my 'Bose' perspire!
This is said to be a "Classic". Dusty made a debut in the American South here, The music is exquisite and includes every superb genre she is so noted for, including the sexy "Breakfast in Bed", "I Don't Want to Hear It Anymore" with its haunting back-up vocals, and the sensual dream of "The Windmills of Your Mind". It's Dusty at best! Love Dusty. Dusty did work vocals on a few of the tracks while in memphis but did fly to NYC to do the rest. I have been a life-long admirer of Dusty and Sandie, Cilla, Petula etc and am now a confirmed fan of Adele.
Having just been to Adele at the O2, I can tell you she had 20, people in the palm of her hand. Your email address will not be published. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. MP3 Music, March 1, "Please retry". Vinyl, Import, January 20, "Please retry".

As Elvis Costello wrote in the liner notes for the reissue of Dusty in Memphis : "Dusty Springfield's singing on this album is among the very best ever put on record by anyone. It is overwhelmingly sensual and self-possessed but it is never self-regarding. The delivery might be confidential, intimate or vulnerable in the opening lines of a song only to explode in the chorus with unknowable emotion.
Every crescendo is well judged; the performances are never showy or bombastic. The most striking impression throughout is one of honesty. View the discussion thread. Laura Fedele.
