Overview

When shy convent girl Mary O'Brien reinvented herself as Dusty Springfield, one of the most glamorous, accomplished and acclaimed pop divas of the 1960s was born. Dusty's career began with the Lana Sisters, and continued with folk group the Springfields before her first solo success in 1963 with the unforgettable 'I Only Want to Be With You'. Subsequent hits included the classics 'I just don't know what to do with Myself', 'You Don't Have To Say You Love Me' and 'Son-of-a Preacher Man'. Dusty slipped into obscurity in the 1970s, but re-emerged in 1987 to enjoy new success duetting with the Pet Shop Boys. She lost her long battle with cancer in 1999, just short of her sixtieth birthday. Drawing on meticulous archive research and interviews with Dusty's friends and collaborators, Paul Howes details every song in Dusty's entire catalogue. This revised edition of The Complete Dusty Springfield includes new chapters on the Lana Sisters and the Springfields, expanded entries on Dusty's solo tracks and an in-depth analysis of Dusty's live work for TV and radio.
