Dusty Springfield : Dusty In Memphis

An absolutely classic album, and certainly one of my favourites. I grew up with stuff like this playing in the background, and am pleased to be able to blog it in its deluxe form, with a load of extra tracks.

Dusty hosted the "Ready Steady Go" Motown specials in the mid 60s and was certainly no slouch performing that sort of material. here though, she really comes into her own, augmented greatly by the  cream of Memphis session men backing her.

Had Dusty been born in the States then this album would be universally renowned as a bona fide Soul Classic. Listen & enjoy...
