If you do love Soul music, then this represents a new take on things. Here Dusty works with some of the most famous of Southern Soul's musicians, and the legendary Tom Dowd and Jerry Wexler, to produce a new type of Soul.
The greatest compliment I can pay Dusty is that this stands comparison with Aretha - but where Aretha lets it all go, Dusty uses control and implies the emotion. There is little doubt that the various performers bring out the best in one another.
There are superb notes to accompany the wonderful music, with Elvis Costello introducing the set, and memoirs from Tom Dowd, Arif Marden, and Jerry Wexler as well as Dusty herself.
Stand out tracks for me are "So Much Love", I Don't Wanna Hear It", and "No Easy Way Down", but this is a fine album, representing the best that 60's music had to offer
