CD Reviews

The Only Dusty Springfield Album You'll Ever Need
Andrew G. Knippel | Saginaw, MI, United States | 12/03/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is the compilation to end all compilations! Includes her signature classics, "You Don't Have To Say You Love Me," "Son Of A Preacher Man," "The Look Of Love," and "I Only Want to Be With You." But there's much, much more to Dusty. She put her timeless spin on so many hits of the rock era, one would think the songs were written for her. Just listen to her take on "Anyone Who Had A Heart," "You've Got A Friend," "This Girl's In Love With You," "Close To You," "Goin' Back," "If You Go Away," "You Don't Own Me," "Piece Of My Heart," "Will You Love Me Tomorrow," "Make It With You," and "Oh No, Not My Baby." All were made hits by other artists, but listening to them on this compilation will make you forget the original recordings. There's so much more to this collection than her hits and covers. It spans 4 decades of her career, and closes out with her hits with the Pet Shop Boys, "What Have I Done To Deserve This," and "In Private." Look no further, this is a great greatest hits collection. She is simply sublime."
Highly Recommended!

"This Dusty Springfield collection gives a great overview of the finest moments in Dusty Springfied's long recording career. From the early Sprigfields track "Island of Dreams" till the 1990 track "Reputation". Logically main focus is on her greatest period from middle 60's till early 70's when she scored several top-ten hits all of which are included here.

Among the lesser known tracks are the fine "Dusty in Memphis" outtake "You've Got a Friend" and a rare live recording of "Quiet Please, There's a Lady on Stage".

Her hit with the Pet Shop Boys "What Have I Done to Deserve This" is also included. All in all a great and highly recommendable collection."
