There are so many Dusty Springfield compilations out there that it's difficult to pick out just one as a summation of her career and artistry, but this budget-line collection is surprisingly enjoyable and at 18 tracks, is quite generous.
The collection features big hits ("Stay Awhile", "Son of A Preacher Man") with lesser known songs like "Spooky" and her cover of "Take a Little Piece of My Heart" which is actually quite good. The album also includes some of Dusty's best songs in my opinion, including her sensitive reading of "This Girl's In Love With You" and the enduring classic, "Breakfast In Bed". In fact, there are a number of tracks from 'Dusty in Memphis' although Dusty's biggest hits, "The Look of Love", "I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself" and "You Don't Have To Say You Love Me" are not here. The sequencing is fine, ending with the title track, which was covered by Swing Out Sister in the '90s, although Dusty's version still sounds fresh.
This is definitely worth buying if you can find it a low price, but then mostly anything of Dusty's is worth buying, whatever the price.
