Biographie de l'artiste
Dusty Springfield was England's greatest pop diva and also happened to be one of the finest white Soul singers of her time. She was a remarkable performer, whose body of work shows many different sides of a diverse artist whose consistency and emotional purity was unmatched by any of her contemporaries. Her influence stretches on to the singers of today. With their towering beehives, panda-black mascara, sultry intimacy and heartbreaking voices, they all owe a huge debt to Dusty. 'Dusty... Definitely' from 1968 is considered one of her best albums. More a Pop production than its predecessors, on it she explored more and different genres than she had done before; the cover 'Take A Little Piece Of My Heart' and Motown-styled 'Ain't No Sun Since You've Been Gone' were produced by a young John Paul Jones, and the album also features 'Who', written by Charles Aznavour and the indelible 'Think It's Gonna Rain Today', written by Randy Newman. Music On Vinyl is proud to add yet another legendary artist to its roster. And Dusty is legendary... definitely!

We know that this album - like all good Dusty Springfield albums - was made under very, very trying conditions - with more than some of those trying conditions attributable to Dusty's never-satisfied, exhausting perfectionism. Whatever the pain surrounding the making of Dusty Definitely, the end result more than justifies it.
There are some songs here that should be instantly recognizable to fans of late sixties and early seventies pop music. Piece of my my heart, originally recorded by Erma Franklin but most famously covered by Janis Joplin, has been covered by plenty of other singers down the years including Bonnie Tyler and Faith Hill. Another oft-recorded song is the Bacharach / David classic, This girl's in love with you. Those are the two most famous songs here, but many of the other songs are also covers include I think it's gonna rain today (Randy Newman), Spooky (McCoys), Second time around (Sammy Cahn / Jimmy Van Heusen), I only wanna laugh (from an obscure Broadway musical), Who will take my place (originally a French song by Charles Aznavour), Morning (originally a Brazillian song) and an obscure Bacharach / David song (Another night). Ain't no sun since you've been gone (the opening track) and I can't give back the love I feel for you (another excellent track) are covers of Motown songs.
The overall sound of the album is typical of what one expected to hear from Dusty in the mid to late sixties, except that this album rocks a little harder than its predecessors. My favorite tracks? On an album of such a consistently high quality, it would be pointless to pick out favorites. I've seen several reviews of this album and I notice that where people pick out favorites, they differ widely in their choices. That's often a sign of a really solid album with no obvious weakness - and that's exactly what this is.
Dusty went on to much greater success with her Memphis album, but if you're a serious fan of Dusty's music, you'll love this album too.
Two other cuts stand out. The muted version of "I only wanna laugh",and her sultry pining "Mr. Dream Merchant". The added tracks are nice but this collection was perfect as it was. "I think it's gonna rain today " should be one of Randy Newmans' biggest compliments as a song-writer.Dusty's haunted ballad singing defines a new depth in her reading of this chestnut.
Bacharach's "This girls in love with you" is another positive,airy turn for the song-writer.Dusty is a singers' singer,and a romantic one,and that is a fact! This lp was one of the finest of her colorful career.
The soul and ballad standards like 'take another little piece of my heart' and this girl's in love with you are sung with feeling and energy - of course. But Dusty is only at half throttle emotionally on these numbers. 'I only wanna laugh' and 'Spooky' are pleasant listening, but compared to what she can achieve they are slight and kitsch.
The album's treasures also include the unexpected pleasures of 'aint no sun sice you've been gone' and 'love power'. Both crazily upbeat. The first in particular has such a powerful, soulful vocal performance that it lifts me out of my seat. 'There's a big black cloud hanging over my head ...' she half croons, half belts out, hopping along the downbeat in a voice mixing honey and raw power ' ... cloud of loneliness, I feel like I'm dead'.
This ranks alongside 'Dusty in Memphis' for me. In fact of all of her albums (and I have them all), this is the one I listen to most often. Partly, I think, because it has more variety than the Memphis album, sublime though that is. Buy it or borrow it or steal it - but hear it!
