Dusty Springfield's second album, a 1964 release whose cover dubbed her "America's newest singing star," illustrates what a master of moods she was becoming. From dramatic showcases such as her brother Tom's "Summer Is Over" and the hits "All Cried Out" and "I Just Don't Know What to Do with Myself" to rough-and-ready takes on Marvin Gaye's "Can I Get a Witness," the New Orleans semi-obscurity "Do Re Mi," and an early Leon Huff tune, "Live It Up," Dusty displays her growing confidence and command of emotional inflections. Thirty-five years later, it stands as a major achievement in her catalog. --Rickey Wright
Bouncy Dusty at her Early Best

"This is one of the earliest Dusty albums to be released in America. It shows how much Dusty was influenced by both Motown (especially her friend Martha Reeves) and the reigning girl groups of the era (especially those bad girls, The Shangri-las). Dusty had tasted American soul music, loved it, and sang it back to us with her usual impeccable timing and perfect voice. This doesn't compare to the classic "Dusty in Memphis", but it's great fun just the same. Brava!"

"I'm proud to say that the debut (as far as I know) album of Dusty Springfield is surprisingly very consistant throughtout,unlike alot of LP's during the mid 60's.There is a very prominant Motown influence at large-something of a mix between the Funk Brothers and Phil Specters wall of sound but it's Springfields classic,soulful vocalising that you'll pay attention to.Any of her albums I would highly recommend considering Dusty's well known demand for high artistic quality.And this won't dissappoint either."
