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, ...

This is just about perfect. If you're not satisfied with The Hits and you're not a hard core Must Have Absolutely Everything, this is the one. She had the perfect voice for me - she could do quiet and moving (I think it's going to rain today) and loud and moving (Give Me Time). Unlike her life she was always in perfect control of the songs. She could surf great orchestral crescendos with ease (check out all those great Italian ballads - memo - why don't those Italians write ballads anymore?). She should have recorded at least half of the Randy Newman songbook, and maybe had a go at some older standards (Round Midnight, that kind of thing) - but hey, who's complaining? Not me. I'm finding all sorts of gems I didn't know about.
So, Christmas is coming up - stick it in your letter to Santa.

'Simply Dusty' is not a collector's item but a magnificent musical biography of one of the very best singers to ever record a song. The project's executive producer, Mr. Mike Gill, with his first rate team of collaborators, presented the world with a masterpiece. The selected repertoire could not have been more representative of Dusty's recording career, the beautiful case which comprises a booklet containing plenty of information on her career and the songs included in the compilation is really 'de luxe', not to mention the excellent sound quality in all tracks. Also, of a tremendous good taste are the photographs that illustrate the booklet as well as the one chosen for the front cover. Dusty is not singing here for her fans only, she is singing for anyone who has got a good musical taste. The boxset is the best means to introduce Dusty's music to those who have been missing, so far, the opportunity of hearing her unique voice. I have already played the CDs for everyone who came to see me, since I've received them. I tend to believe that Amazon will be receiving extra orders from delighted new fans, some of them being young people. I wish to thank Mr. Gill and his team for having granted Dusty the eternity she deserved.

What can you say? Nearly one hundred tracks, all the hits, some tracks released for the first time on cd, some lesser known gems....this box has got them all, an impressive collection of songs from the past forty years displaying the variety and quality of Dusty. Personally, I feel sentimental when I hear some of the beautiful songs she recorded. And the voice...there's hardly any words to describe the sound of this great voice. This compilation has been made with a touch of class and elegance, and I think Dusty would have appreciated it. Of course you might miss some songs and wonder why this or that is included, but you can't satisfy everybody. Yet I think most of her fans will be pleased with so much variety. This is what memories are made of..Just sit down, close your eyes and listen....

It's been a long time coming, and it's worth the wait. Mercury has finally released a definitive box set covering the Queen of Blue-Eyed Soul's entire career, from a home recording of a ragtime medley to a version of "Someone to Watch Over Me" cut for a tv commercial that is understood to be the last recording Dusty Springfield ever made. Kudos to Mike Gill and Paul Howes for taking on the daunting task of selecting just two to four tracks from each project Dusty was involved in, and for being so generous with the material from the 70s and 80s that hadn't made it to CD until now. Every hit is here and all the key LP tracks, as well as cuts recorded with other artists and one-offs. Listening to the box as a whole, I'm struck by the sheer volume of great material Dusty lent her unique, inimitable, totally moving voice to throughout her career. For every superb overlooked or unreleased cut, like her takes on Jaye P. Morgan's "Closet Man," Janis Ian's "In the Winter," Melissa Manchester's "Home to Myself" and Peter Allen's "Quiet Please There's A Lady on Stage," there are three or four equally excellent tracks that necessarily had to be left off this set. This will have to do until Bear Family exhumes the entire Dusty Springfield oeuvre for one of their own legendary 9 or 10 CD box sets. Until then, this is indispensable.

OH MY GOD! It's beautiful! Yes, I think they finally got it right this time! What a stunning Box Set! Finally, something worthy of the work of our dear Dusty. Beautiful book like format with a stunning full length photo of our Dusty on the cover! A fantastic booklet with wonderful photos (this time, I found no bad ones)...and some wonderful words and homages to our great lady.
The track selections are great and excellently sequenced in my mind. All the big hits are there, but there are also enough new tidbits to keep all of us old time fans happy.
The 3 previously unreleased tracks are breathtaking. I am still reeling from hearing "In The Winter". I will never be the same. The 2 new live tracks sound great also, and only make me wonder why they can't release ALL of the Royal Albert Hall concert? ..especially if they can get such a great sound mix from "Quiet Please..." and "Lose Again."
The other tracks I was glad to finally see on CD were "But It's A Nice Dream" and "Turn Me Around". They sound great and as crisp as if Dusty were sitting right next to me singing them. (chills! ) This version of "But It's A Nice Dream" sounds like a different take than the ones I heard over the opening and closing credits of KISS ME GOODBYE. Is this a 3rd version?
I also love the inclusion of the complete "Ragtime Selections" and the Lana Sisters track...gives a full idea of the growth of Dusty's voice and skill and how she changed throughout her career and how she stayed the same.
Last night, while listening to the Box set, among all my feelings of joy and excitement about this wonderful 4 CD set, I also couldn't help but feel a little sad.
I miss Dusty.
