Dusty Springfield - Dusty in Memphis (50th anniversary edition)

by Dusty Springfield


Recorded at American Sound Studio in Memphis, Dusty in Memphis, is her greatest LP. Dusty worked with a stellar team of musicians and producers that included Jerry Wexler, Arif Mardin, Tom Dowd, conductor Gene Orloff, backing vocalists The Sweet Inspirations, bassist Tommy Cogbill, and guitarist Reggie Young. • Initial reaction and sales were disappointing on release, but the album has since been rediscovered and critically lauded as one of the greatest records of all time. In 2001, it was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. • Features songs by the cream of 20th century songwriters – Barry Mann/Cynthia Weil, Goffin/King, Randy Newman & Burt Bacharach/Hal David • Includes Dusty’s classic takes on Son of a Preacher Man (a top-10 hit in the UK), Breakfast in Bed, Just One Smile, I Don’t Want to Hear About It Anymore, So Much Love and Just a Little Lovin’ – in all cases improving on the originals! • This 50th anniversary edition has been remastered at half-speed at Abbey Road Studios, London
