CD Reviews

Dusty, Dusty, Dusty
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I cannot seemingly get enough of this marvelous voice and even tho' I actually just got hold of this cd as an import cd, i have to really share my thoughts to the rest of the world. This album contains some of her best cuts and personally speaking, the song "Something In Your Eyes" is my sole reason for buying this cd and I think she's the only singer who can interpret it that way...full of emotion. It's so sad that she wasn't credited (accordingly) for this cut appearing on Richard Carpenter's Time album (this album also contains a lovely duet of Richard and Dionne called In Love Alone)but nonetheless, it has some mighty nice words in it. Also, the variety of songs here in Something Special speaks of it's very title. But the ultimate gem from Dusty is still the Memphis stuff. The legend will definitely be MISSED, long Dusty."
The best collection of an artist ever! | Fortaleza, Brazil | 08/02/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Normally, collections are just a repetition of similar products of the same artists. Mike Gill has done a master job, as he did not take the easiest road, but did research Dusty's marvellous repertoire and rescued real gems that would otherwise remain out of reach, for her fans. If one is listening to Dusty for the 1st time, well, the double CD gives a complete coverage of the work of the best female singer around the world. All of her facets are here, and she had far too many. Her eclecticism, her easiness as she changed from a rock'n'roll to a passionate ballad... Impressive how well Dusty manages in French and Italian! She is not just a singer, but she acts as the character in her song. If you haven't heard it yet, don't waste time."
This is different, really very special

"There are lots of Dusty Springfield compilations, all of them containing more or less the same collection of songs, most of all her greatest hits and some few other songs; for those who are looking for different songs (I mean not those that are repeated in almost all the compilations), this double CD is the answer, you'll find here b-sides of her Singles (British Singles in most cases), songs thst never were hits neither in UK nor in US, plus unreleased material and also some songs she recorded in Italian and in French; this compilation is defintely different from all the others, essential for collectors, it will also be of great interest for those who want to know some other songs of Dusty Springfield's repertoire."
