At a time when the business seems close to saturation point with young,
charmless and mediocre female performers it is good to be reminded what
a consumate performer Ms Springfield was and in a way forever is.

Her legacy is one of life's true treasures.

That 'A Very Fine Love' turned out to be her final album is a
powerful reminder of what the music world lost when she slipped away.

This collection of ten fine songs recorded and produced in Nashville
by Tom Shapiro and supported by a stellar band of musicians is much
more than an epitaph.
It is a veritable masterclass in classy, gospel-tinged R&B.

Listen to the vocal on 'All I Have To Offer You Is Love' for
immediate elucidation. The warm but slightly edgy tone; the
impeccable phrasing; the committment to the spirit of its'
lyrical content.

'Wherever Would I Be', a collaboration with Daryl Hall (also in
very fine voice), is the very epitome of what a duet can be.
Mr Huff's guitar solo is also a thing of real joy !

'Go Easy On Me' is a moving and beautiful ballad enhanced by
Mr Whalums' cracking soprano sax solo and Ms Clark's subtle
vocal harmonies.

So many treasures.

Final track 'Where Is A Woman To Go', movingly supported by
Ms Chapin Carmenter and Ms Oslin, is as good as it gets !

Don't just take my word for it.

Give Duffy a miss and buy into a little bit of the real thing.

Highly Recommended.

Dusty was THE BEST, for those who havent heard her work other than the few popular songs that the radio stations always play then any of her early albums and then this her last one is for you.
what a wealth of wonderful music she left us and she is head and shoulders above her contemporaries and all the newbies from these last few years.
this particular album shows all the magnificence of her interpretations,she takes you into a whole new world of emotion with songs like "Go easy on me" and "where is a woman to go" the underrated "you are the storm" is again sung beautifully. "I cant help the way I dont feel" is a gentle song sung by the gentlest of voices. as said before this was her last album and all the more precious to all her fans because the vulnerability is there for a different reason and is heartbreaking. take these songs and go back to her first album and listen to
" my colouring book" and you will see what a talent is now lost to us all.
However, we do still have the music and so for those who dont know her well you are in for a real treat.
a vastly under rated singer in this Country but one who is revered and loved by all her fans to this day. Dusty will never be forgotten she was a Gem.

Dustys final studio album made while she battled cancer.
Classic covers and beautifully crafted songs make this an album not to be missed.
Dustys voice is better than ever and made the hairs on the back of my neck stand.
Emotional listening to Dustys final recordings the tears ran down my cheeks.
Dusty we miss you every day and 14 years since your tragic death we still enjoy your fantastic music.

As the years go by and more and more dusty collections and retrospectives appear on the shelves, as the "true" stories of her life are published and all the details are put under music journalists miscroscopes it has become even more important to look at Dusty, the singer. It was her first love and yet it became part of her downfall. It was difficult to market Dusty after those halcyon days of the 1960s as she truly was the greatest white soul singer of her time. She was put through so many different music "machines" to analyse the elusive quality produced by her voice. It is justified comparing her to Janis Joplin who was travelling the same self destructive route. But Dusty was a good girl. Janis wasnt. Dusty's voice has become one of those sounds that is as instantly recognisable as
any voice of the 20th century. In fact at its most poignant it contains a nostalgic quality that reveals to us all that we have lost moving into the disposable culture of the 21st.
On this her last album are all the reasons why she has become iconic in her influence on a new generation of women singers and also taking us back to those times 40+ years ago when the beehive and eyeliner spawned a generation of dusty girls. I will always be grateful to Dusty for making such sweet music and will probably still be playing her songs and remembering when I am 90 years old

Great album. Some lovely classic 'Dusty' sounding vocals. Of course, it's not sixties pop, but it's pop.

THIS ALBUM JUST OOZES WITH PEACE&SERENITY FOR ME. IT SHOWS DUSTY AS SOMEONE AS PEACE WITH HERSELF AND THE WORLD, AND HER OWN HIGHER POWER. SHE WAS ILL WHEN RECORDING THIS, AND THAT IS EVEN MORE TESTAMENT TO A TRULY GREAT SINGER. AND WHAT SHE DID FOR EDUCATING THE BRITISH TO THE AMERICAN SOUL GREATS IS OFTEN OVERLOOKED TOO!
I LOVE THE LAST SONG " WHERE IS A WOMAN TO GO".

I always enjoy listening to Dusty whatever she is singing. A great performer so under acknowledged.Would be great if we could get another Dusty album in the charts today.
