DUSTY SPRINGFIELD Hits Collection (1997 UK 21-track CD compilation album featuring a collection of her best-loved hits including I Only Want To Be With You You Dont Have To Say You Love Me Son Of A Preacher Man I Close My Eyes & Count To Ten and The Look Of Love picture sleeve)
Top Customer Reviews
Many of the best-loved Dusty classics are here including You don't have to say you love me (a song of Italian origin that gave Dusty her only UK number one hit), I only want to be with you (later covered by the Bay City Rollers, whose cover peaked at four in the UK in 1976, exactly as Dusty's original had done - the Tourists, whose lead singer was Annie Lennox, repeated the feat in 1979), I just don't know what to do with myself, Losing you, Some of your loving, All I see is you, I close my eyes and count to ten and Son of a preacher man, all of which made the UK top ten, together with How can I be sure, Stay awhile, Your hurting kind of love, Give me time and I'll try anything, which proved Dusty with further UK hits.
The set opens with Look of love, a song that is generally associated with Dusty but didn't chart for her in the UK, as well as superb covers of Windmills of your mind and Yesterday when I was young.
This is not the definitive Dusty hits collection as two UK top ten hits (Going back, In the middle of nowhere) are omitted but this is a budget collection. You can find more complete collections at a higher price but this is very good for the price and provides an ideal introduction to Dusty's music at a low price.
By the time you get to 'I close my eyes and count to ten', I can almost guarantee you will have turned up the volume and been surrounded by a unique talent that was oh so Dusty.
If you like what you have heard here, then do try to locate a box set which has almost every track she ever recorded, amazing stuff that just keeps on appearing on radio stations, the occasional tv ad and even in the background at the Queen Vic on Eastenders! 40 years on and still what the phrase 'fab' was all about!
As part of the British pop stars invasion of the nineteen sixties, Dusty went on to became a star state side, as well as in Great Britain. From Rock to Pop to White Soul, Dusty Springfield did it all and did it well. Her premature death due to cancer leaves a hole in the music world. Yet, Dusty will live on in the hearts of her many fans, a legend in her own time.
If you want a hits collection,try "Complete A And B Sides 1963-1970 " however many tracks are mono as were the original singles,so if you want stereo look elsewhere.
"Goin' Back - The Very Best Of Dusty Springfield 1962-1994" has all her hits and many are stereo.Amazon has plenty to choose from,I tend to buy only those with the sound samples to listen to,atleast then there won't be any nasty surprises.
