Dusty Springfield [RIP] - Discography


Born: 16 April 1939 - Died: 2 March 1999

Mary Isobel Catherine Bernadette O'Brien OBE, professionally known as Dusty Springfield, was an English pop singer and record producer whose career extended from the late 1950s to the 1990s.

Britain's greatest pop diva, Dusty Springfield was also the finest white soul singer of her era, a performer of remarkable emotional resonance whose body of work spans the decades and their attendant musical transformations with a consistency and purity unmatched by any of her contemporaries; though a camp icon of glamorous excess in her towering beehive hairdo and panda-eye black mascara, the sultry intimacy and heartbreaking urgency of Springfield's voice transcended image and fashion, embracing everything from lushly orchestrated pop to gritty R&B to disco with unparalleled sophistication and depth. She was born Mary O'Brien on April 16, 1939, and raised on an eclectic diet of classical music and jazz, coming to worship Peggy Lee; after completing her schooling she joined the Lana Sisters, a pop vocal trio which issued a few singles on Fontana before dissolving. In 1960, upon teaming with her brother Dion O' Brien and his friend Tim Feild in the folk trio the Springfields, O'Brien adopted the stage name Dusty Springfield; thanks to a series of hits including "Breakaway," "Bambino," and "Say I Won't Be There," the group was soon the U.K.'s best-selling act.

As I said once before, there was Dusty, there was Petula, and then there were the others who could never get far out of the shade of the big two.

Thank you very much for the Dusty Springfield Live at the Royal Albert Hall 1979. Looking forward to give it a pleasant listen,

Derek, you will love it as much as I do and she is still one of my favourites. Such a pity she has passed.

Derek said...

Very nice concert indeed. The download was missing song 5 "This will be" from the concert but found it on yutub so all is in order.
Thanks again for all these discoveries. Great time on your blog.
Greetings from Paris
