Dusty's digitally-remastered, bells & whistles re-release of her debut solo Album is a real treasure. It shows that, although her style and material may have become more sophisticated with later recordings, unlike some other Artists, her voice was as strong and natural in the early sixties as it was when she died.
Belting her way through true diva-esque numbers like 'When The LoveLight Starts Shining Through His Eyes' and 'Don't you Know', her voice shows its true power when handling numbers like 'My Colouring Book', a song which, under a less sensitive talent, could very easily have become maudlin and anodyne.
This re-release version also contains bonus tracks not contained on the original, of which 'Once upon a Time', 'Can I Get a Witness' and 'All Cried Out' shine out as some of Dusty's best recordings this side of 'Dusty In Memphis'.
Put simply, this is one of her abolute best releases, and a must-have for everybody.
