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, ...

Dusty's "Cameo" album has finally been released on CD in the U.K. at last! This is by far my favourite Dusty album and I am delighted to hear it digitally remastered rather than listening to my old crackly vinyl! Even though all the tracks from this album were released in the U.S.A. on CD along with some unreleased recordings from her "Elements / Longing" sessions under the title "Beautiful Soul", it is wonderful to have the "Cameo" tracks on a CD of their own. The songs on this CD are timeless and Dusty's voice has never sounded more beautiful. The album has a lovely mellow sound to it that makes it perfect to listen to after a long hard day, as Dusty's voice makes all the cares of the day just drift away. There are many standout tracks for me with the beautiful interpretation of Van Morrison's "Tupelo Honey" and the haunting "The Other Side Of Life" being among the best. This is one CD where the "repeat" button on your CD player will become indispensable!

If you have discovered the glories of Dusty In Memphis and are wondering what to try next, then the answer is easy - try this under-rated gem from 1973! With Atlantic unable to emulate the success of Son Of A Preacher Man, in 1972 they released Dusty from contract and she signed to ABC/Dunhill. The new label teamed her with producers Steve Barri, Dennis Lambert and Brian Potter who were scoring big at the time with the Four Tops. The album they made with Dusty is among their best work ever. The opener, "Who Gets Your Love?" sets the tone - a slinky, sexy mid-tempo number that was the first release. Good as this is, the next track, "Breaking Up A Happy Home" lifts the tempo and is one of several smashes that somehow never were. Wonderful, Philly-inspired soul, with classic Dusty soulful vocal. What is so impressive with this record, though, is the depth and quality of material. Second single was the pretty, creamy "Mama's Little Girl", but even better are "Who Could Be Lovin' You Other Than Me?", a glorious cover of Van Morrison's "Tupelo Honey", and a truly searing version of Ashford and Simpson's "I Just Want To Be There". Amazingly, though, the very best is saved for last - "Learn To Say Goodbye" is a real classic; a great yearning ballad, that Dusty just sings for all that she is worth. Incredibly, at the time of release, ABC/Dunhill had cashflow problems that meant the record had no marketing budget, and Dusty was unavailable for promotion as her personal struggles were beginning to take their toll. As a result, the album dropped into obscurity, but recently has started to be re-discovered and to receive the kind of appreciation that it always merited. If you love Dusty and/or quality soul, then buy this - you will truly never regret it!!!

I bought this record in a grocer's store. It was in a rack of throw away deleted records being sold off for £1.25 each. I didn't know any of the tracks and I thought the album cover was a bit cheap. By this time I had heard tracks off Memphis and some of the greatest hits on the radio but I didn't know anything about Dusty and this was my first Dusty record bought by complete chance. When I got home I took the Velvet Underground off my Ultra record player and put this record on - it was love at first hearing. Listening to this today the album is still fresh. Dusty's perfectionism makes all her albums life-time classics - you keep them or upgrade to the latest music storage technology but you don't get tired of them. The Dennis Lambert/Brian Potter production is wonderfully clear, the songs are strong, the backing vocals are great and as usual Dusty is centred in the emotional meaning of each song with that fantastic voice, fantastic phrasing and those fabulous ad libs. These tracks remain rare and hard to get because this beautiful album is deleted. It bombed because it had no marketing budget and Dusty wasn't around to promote the album and I guess that young record buyers were buying different music. The album remains relatively unknown. But this is a worthy successor to `Memphis'.

`Easy Evil' and `Tupelo Honey' are sensual master classes. `Of All the Things' is a beautiful timeless love song. If `The Other Side of Life' doesn't relax you then the next track Comin' and Goin' will do the trick. `Who Could Be Lovin' You Other Me' is a soulful heartbreaker. Only `Mama's Little Girl' grates with me a bit because the lyrics and tune are for a younger woman but it's a still a good catchy song.

Finally on CD! 13 Dec 2002
By Dario Margeli - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Released in 1973, this was unfairly not a commercial hit. However, its one gorgeous album. Probably one of the most underated albums of all time. Even though the album does not have the importance of her "in Memphis" album, in someways,
the arrangements and production of "Cameo" are more appropriate for the emotional outpour Dusty provides. Where "in Memphis" at times one hears very few instruments, in Cameo the gaps are filled with warm strings. Don't pay so much attention to the cover versions of this album, the real deal is the original song "Who gets the love".

~"White Queen Of Soul" masterpiece~Bravo Dusty! 27 Jan 2004
By Bradly Briggs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Remember experiencing Susan Hayward's last memorable performance in riveting TV Movie "Say Goodbye To Maggie Cole", hearing Dusty sing "Learn To Say Goodbye" stood out as being one of the best ever from Dusty, at this point was eager to see if a new album would be out and very pleased upon release of "Cameo" masterwork. Complete amazement was the feeling experiencing another masterpiece from this great singer but completely disappointment realizing this great Lp was getting zero Radio Support with no airplay on any stations in Los Angeles...radio programmers where falling all over themselves grabbing for anything "singer-songwriter" of any caliber yet completely ignoring this masterpiece, sadly no matter how great after infamous 1970 London interview & few years later "Free Press" where Dusty bravely in a totally homophobic era divulged being gay, no solo hits in the US ever happened after "A Brand New Me", quickly & very sadly disappeared from airwaves when issue was released...soulful collection of great songs and masterful performances by Dusty would have otherwise had a number of Top Ten Hits easily. Opening strong "Who Get's Your Love" find the great singer in a solid funky soulful groove with Dusty taking sublime gem to the max, "Breakin'Up A Happy Home" with wild rhythm track featuring brilliant soulful vocal from Dusty that is stunning. Seductive "Easy Evil" features Dusty at her sensual best, given airplay this hypnotic performance that people still talk about decades later would have been a major smash it is that great! Hauntingly gorgeous & illuminating "Mama's Little Girl" is memorable while Ashford & Simpson "I Just Wanna Be There" another solid soul classic from Dusty! Funky anthem "Who Could Be Loving You? (Other Than Me)" would had been a huge R&B hit if promoted or given airplay, all those programmers were spaced-out letting this masterwork slip by and where was FM radio, not to the rescue as they should have been here. Van Morrison "Tupelo Honey" smooth & sulty masterful performance where Dusty oozes with passionate soul, would easily have gone to #1 if released as a single & given airplay, talk about missed opportunities! Hypnotic & ethereal is the glorious "Of All The Things", one of Dusty's greatest ever silk & soul vocals. Lovers of great singers will find these performances on their essential "must have" list of great masterworks! "Learn To Say Goodbye" high on the list of top Dusty classics, deeply moving song can easily bring one to tears, in life saying Goodbye is always hard and never has this been so brilliantly espressed in a song. Finally everyone has a chance (snooze and you will loose, look at out of stocks & prices that soar like her incredible voice) to experience this lost masterpiece so don't miss the opportunity. Love and miss you forever Dusty & RIP!

Excellent, much overlooked Dusty Springfield album. 8 Nov 2002
By S. Sittig - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This 1973 Dusty Springfield effort is perhaps her most overlooked work. Coming 3 years after the critical acclaim of DUSTY IN MEMPHIS and 2 years after her foray into Gamble & Huff's Philly soul with A BRAND NEW ME, CAMEO has a lot to offer listeners who love Dusty's voice and enjoy her eclectic song choices and delivery.
While not as unified as her 2 previous albums, this album, produced by the team of Lambert/Potter, has a decidely mid 70s pop MOR feel to it. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but the problem is that Dusty, as she often was, is once again ahead of her time here. Had this album been released in 75, when lite-AM-pop-rock was at its peak, it perhaps would have attracted more mainstream attention.
There is not a bad track on this album, and they are all beautifully interpreted and brilliantly sung by Dusty, but the highlights are: a very feminine take on Van Morrison's "Tupelo Honey", a stunning "Who Get's Your Love", "Easy Evil" (which has enough sensuality to rival Dusty's earlier cooing on "The Look of Love"), the high energy Ashford & Simpson tune, "I Just Want To Be There" and the wonderfully vulnerable "Of All The Things."
Especially noteworthy is Dusty's vocal magic on "Who Could Be Lovin' You Other Than Me", a song that could be overlooked by a lesser vocalist, becomes a shiny gem when given the Dusty treatment. Vocally, Dusty is truly at her peak on this album, hitting some beautiful highs and some even more effective lows throughout. While perhaps not as ethereal and other-worldly as on DUSTY IN MEMPHIS, she is more confident here, with a stronger attack.
Unfortunately, this album languished on shelves and was practically ignored by listeners when it was originally released. Perhaps it was the cover, one of the least attractive ever for a major artist? (Apparently it was meant to be in felt, to resemble an actual cameo,but a last minute budget cut changed it to regular cardboard.) Or maybe it was the ahead of its time production style? For whatever reason it simply didn't take off. But luckily for us, it has now been released on CD for the first time, and we can finally listen to what the 1973 listeners missed-Dusty singing her heart out and meaning it.
Something very few singers today seem to be able to do convincingly.

Underrated and Overlooked 10 Jan 2003
By J. M. Zuurbier - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This was Dusty's first MOR album, and her first album for ABC Dunhill. She is probably at her vocal best on this album, the production is top notch thanks to Barri, Lambert & Potter producing, the band is more vibrant and alive than on past records, the songs are all winners, however CAMEO simply failed to catch the hearts of listeners. As one reviewer suggested if it had been released a little later, it might have caught onto listeners. It always seemed like Dusty was ahead of her time. The album opens with the stunning "Who Gets Your Love?". There is also the soulful "I Just Wanna Be There", and a cover of Van Morrison's "Tupelo Honey". Other highlights include the stunning ballads "Learn To Say Goodbye", "The Other Side of Life" and "Of All The Things". Not a bad song here at all, be sure you don't pass up this album, it's truly a gem.

Cameo was Dusty's first American mainstream pop album 13 Aug 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
"Cameo" was Dusty's first MOR album. Nothing she did prior to that could have been labelled MOR because that musical genre hadn't been invented yet. After her two qualified chart successes experimenting with soul on Atlantic ("Dusty In Memphis" and "A Brand New Me"), she signed with ABC-Dunhill in 1972 in the hope of cracking the mainstream pop market.
With Barri, Lambert & Potter producing, there was every expectation that she might achieve the success enjoyed by labelmates The Four Tops after they left Motown. Lambert & Potter even wrote 5 of the 11 tunes for her. On her first outing with ABC-Dunhill, Dusty hired top flight session musicians from LA and worked with a band that created a bright new commercial track featuring a dominant keyboard sound with loads of busy strings that was nowhere as subtle as that created for her by Atlantic.
Although Dusty turned in performances suggesting she was at or near her vocal peak in the early 70s, the album was a flop. While the material wasn't always impeccable - there were the odd fillers like "Easy Evil" and "Coming & Going" or a bit of harmless nonsense like "Mama's Little Girl" - there was also plenty that was worthy and memorable.
The opening cut, "Who Gets Your Love", for instance, is a gem that still exudes class today. Also impressive are her soulful rendition of ravers like Ashford & Simpson's "I Just Wanna Be There" and the breezy "Breaking Up A Happy Home". Revisionists today point to "Tupelo Honey" as the standout track that should have been released as the lead single. I can see why. Dusty's soulful reading of this Van Morrison classic is simply phenomenal. The two ballads "Of All The Things" and "The Other Side Of Life" on the other hand show off Dusty's plaintive touch with a song that spells sheer magic. For those who like a bit of old fashioned kitchen sink melodrama, there's "Learn To Say Goodbye" to cry to. Dusty also always sang above the quality of her material. She even turned a nondescript song like "Who Could Be Loving You Other Than Me" into something distinctive and memorable.
"Cameo" may not be a classic like "Dusty In Memphis" but there's much in it to enjoy.
