Dusty Springfield, "Live at the Royal Albert Hall" DVD and CD were probably going to be the last Dusty Springfield projects in which Mr Michael Gill would be involved. He was given the responsibility some years ago by Dusty Springfield to remaster her back catalogue. Mike, who very unfortunately sometimes went unnoticed, but obviously not by Dusty Springfield, carried out her wishes with the expertise and professionalism he was known for. Thank you Paul Howes for working beside him and providing your own very special professional advice. Mike was always very grateful to you.
Having initiated the idea for this DVD/CD, unfortunately Mike Gill's untimely death has not allowed him to see the project through to its completion. They are both wonderful productions and, as usual, the lady herself is just spectacular. One must have both the CD and DVD in their collection. They are absolutely superb. Very sadly we lost the wonderful person, but thank God Dusty Springfield's voice will never be lost.
I also dedicate this review to Michael Gill, because without you Michael the DVD/CD would only have been a dream. Thank you my most dear friend. You will always be remembered and remembered too for being the ultimate perfectionist, something that Dusty Springfield very early on discovered you were.
