Dusty Springfield was England's greatest pop diva and also happened to be one of the finest white Soul singers of her time.
She was a remarkable performer, whose body of work shows many different sides of a diverse artist whose consistency and emotional purity was unmatched by any of her contemporaries.
Her influence stretches on to the singers of today.
With their towering beehives, panda-black mascara, sultry intimacy and heartbreaking voices, they all owe a huge debt to Dusty.
'Dusty... Definitely' from 1968 is considered one of her best albums. More a Pop production than its predecessors, on it she explored more and different genres than she had done before; the cover 'Take A Little Piece Of My Heart' and Motown-styled 'Ain't No Sun Since You've Been Gone' were produced by a young John Paul Jones (who had just gained fame with Led Zeppelin), and the album also features 'Who', written by Charles Aznavour, and the indelible 'Think It's Gonna Rain Today'', written by Randy Newman.
Music On Vinyl is proud to add yet another legendary artist to its roster.
And Dusty is legendary... Definitely!
