All Music Guide - Bruce Eder
Just when you thought that the perfect album and its CD equivalent couldn't get any better, along comes Rhino with this 25-song deluxe edition of Dusty in Memphis. The new transfers on the original Dusty in Memphis material are sharper and brighter, but also warmer than the original 1992 CD -- the finely nuanced richness of Dusty Springfield's voice on the softer numbers, such as "In the Land of Make Believe" and "Windmills of Your Mind," is captured perfectly on this new edition, where the old CD had a colder, harder texture. Among the bonus tracks, "What Do You Do When Love Dies" comes from the same sessions as the Memphis album, and its noninclusion on the original is ...

Among the bonus tracks, "What Do You Do When Love Dies" comes from the same sessions as the Memphis album, and its noninclusion on the original is difficult to explain, being one of the singer's more exuberant performances and tracks. The highlight of the bonus tracks, however, are the songs left over from sessions for the unfairly underrated Gamble- and Huff-produced Brand New Me album, and the unissued 1971 Jeff Barry-produced sides for a never-released third Atlantic album. If anything, she's more confident and bold on this material than on Dusty in Memphis. The sound is lusher, and heavier as well, but no less seductive and captivating, and the presence of treasures such as her covers of David Gates' "Make It With You" and Carole King's "You've Got a Friend," the gospel-flavored "Love Shine Down," and the hard-rocking "Natchez Trace" all serve to make this a must-own CD, even for those who already have the previous versions. One other nice feature of the new edition is that the clarity of the remastering brings the backing instruments out as never before, which makes one appreciate the production and arrangements as well as her performance.

    Erotic Bedsit Soul

    Maybe it's just me, but this does things to me that should be best kept behind half-closed doors, broken blinds or flimsy curtains. Aside from the clearly, er, horny maiden that was sneaking off to corrupt that 'Son of a Preacherman', here Dusty wears a number of compelling sexual disguises. The tenderness and cracked dignity with which she takes on the role of the whore/mistress in 'Breakfast in Bed' is tremendous, giving the line, "You can dry your tears on my dress" an undeniable erotic charge. Similarly, that same shabby elegance lends her reading of Randy Newman's daytime soap 'I Don't Want To Hear It Anymore' an emotional complexity that lets you see the thin tenement walls, the peeling wallpaper, the dying front yard. Of the "new" songs, 'Cherished', a wonderful melodrama, the Diana Ross-like 'All the King's Horses' and the utterly fantastic gospel of 'I Found My Way' should never have been reduced to being out-takes. However, we have them now and should be grateful. Tie that old red chiffon scarf around the reading lamp and spend a glorious night in.

    dusty in my heart

    this album proves why female artists are so important in our wonderful music history. 'dusty in memphis' is such an elegant ensemble. the beautiful songs [some co-written by carole king], are lyrical gems. this album is deeply respected by the music industry. buy it, and listen, you'll understand.

    A true Classic

    Dusty in Memphis is a great album and with this edition the number of songs has more than doubled its original lineup. It unfortunate that this classic is largely forgotten by the general public but there is hardly a Country singer today that doesn't owe something to this album. There is no reason to ignore this album, especially at this great price, if nothing more than to have a copy of her hit "Son of a Preacher Man".
