"In the sixties, it was normal to leave hit singles off original albums, it being assumed that anybody who bought the album already had the singles, which sold in fat bigger quantities in those days. With eight bonus tracks added to the thirteen on the original vinyl release, hits could have been included but weren't - it presumably being assumed that anybody now buying this already has a greatest hits collection of Dusty's music. (If you don't have one, buy one of those before worrying about this - there are plenty to choose from.) So this album contains no hits but has plenty to offer sixties pop fans generally and Dusty fans in particular.
Of the eight bonus tracks (all recorded in New York), four were released as an EP in the UK while Don't say it baby was a UK B-side. The other three tracks are making their UK debut here. In America, Live it up and Guess who were the two sides of an American single. Both sides in turn bubbled under the top 100 without making the main chart - that's the nearest you get to a Dusty hit in this collection. Here she comes was another American B-side.
Among the tracks here are Dusty's covers of Oh no not my baby (originally an American hit for Maxine Brown, it was a UK hit in 1965 for Manfred Mann and a bigger UK hit in 1973 for Rod Stewart), La Bamba (originally an American hit for Ritchie Valens, it didn't make the UK charts until 1987, when Los Lobos took it all the way to number one), Who can I turn to (a theatrical song that was an American hit for Tony Bennett), Doodling (another theatrical song), It was easier to hurt him (a minor UK hit for Wayne Fontana), I've been wrong before (a UK hit for Cilla Black).
There are many other great songs here, some of which are also covers, but it really doesn't matter whether they are or not. Won't be long (a brilliant up-tempo song), Long after tonight is over (a Bacharach-David song) and That's how heartaches are made (a superb ballad) are among the other highlights.
If you enjoy Dusty's music and want to go beyond her hit singles, you will love this."
