Sure, many will say "Son Of A Preacher Man" is the centerpiece of this gem. I beg to differ with popular sentiment. The Goffin/King composition "No Easy Way Down" is the one track which takes this album from the great to the sublime. Dusty never sang a song better before or after recording this soul/gospel-tinged treasure. For a woman who aspired to be a soul singer, Dusty realises that goal in this song more than any other song she ever recorded. The close second would be "I Believe In You" from her "Brand New Me" album. The great white girl singer was truly blessed with a black soul.
The production values put into this album by Jerry Wexler and Tom Dowd are the stuff of legends. Not unlike a great director with an actor, Wexler used every trick in the book to extract the very finest singing performance Dusty was ever to record. This is no hype - this album is THAT good. Why it took the world and the record industry another 18 years(thanks to the Pet Shop Boy) to "rediscover" Dusty Springfield just boggles the mind.
If you purchase no other album from the late 1960's, do yourself a favour and add "Dusty In Memphis" to your collection. You will not be disappointed. It's Dusty immortal gift to all music lovers everywhere! Thank you, Ms. O'Brien.
Listen to Dusty laying her heart on the line. Listen to those breathtaking notes, the great music, recording quality and the fantastic Sweet Inspirations. This is a master-class. The first 6 tracks and 10-11 are amazing and sublime. The rest is gorgeous icing. This album should always be available. Whatever you pay, it's an absolute steal for this totally classic album.
Dusty sounds like she's not earthbound any more like Memphis has released her soul and its floating free at last. Dusty totally lives the lyrics and exposes a deeply intelligent, sensual sensibility. She reaches into a deep sadness and vulnerability too. You get a little of this on some of her other albums but its totally realized on 'Memphis'. There's a raw, yet controlled, emotional quality that astonishes at every listen. Listen at night with the lights turned down, relax, just give in and make contact. Everything will disappear and it will just be you, ethereal Dusty, and your emotions in free fall.
On`So Much Love' she takes my breath away every time she sings `You show your love in so many ways, I'm gonna love you for the rest of my days...Read more ›
Nonetheless, this is a superb original album, along with engaging sleeve notes and a better sound than ever realised before. If you have the 1990 Rhino version, you may need to keep both editions, courtesy of another careless record company decision.
