Dusty Springfield - Dusty In Memphis




Sometimes memories distort or inflate the quality of recordings deemed legendary, but in the case of the 1969 classic Dusty In Memphis, the years have only strengthened its reputation. The idea of taking England's reigning female soul queen to the home of the music she had mastered was an inspired one. The Jerry Wexler/Tom Dowd/Arif Mardin production and engineering team picked mostly-perfect songs. This set has definitive numbers in "So Much Love," "Son of a Preacher Man," "Breakfast in Bed," "Just One Smile," "I Don't Want to Hear About It Anymore" and "Just a Little Lovin'." It's truly a disc deserving of its classic status.

Noisy

The lows and mid-range sound on this record are solid, but the high are very noisy and distorted to the point that it's almost unlistenable. I also should have sprung for the 45RPM version.

Excellent pressing, black background. My only complaint was the sound was harsh to my ears. Should have sprung for the Analog Productions 45RPM version. McIntosh doesn't lie.......BL

I love this album and it contains some of the best female vocals I have ever heard. However even though the sound quality is superb the pressing itself is very noisy on some tracks. Pops and crackles abound... beware!


Dusty still lives!

This a great album! It really brings Dusty back to life. Every song is easy to listen to. The pressing is good and beats the pants off of any CD. If you like female vocalists you really need this one in your collection.
