Overview

Released in conjunction with the opening of the Australian musical Dusty early in 2006, this solid collection of Dusty Springfield originals is a wonderful introduction to the full sweep of this marvelous singer's career. Although it isn't arranged chronologically -- following instead the order of the songs as they appear in the musical -- it still covers the whole journey, from her earliest hits with the Springfields ("Silver Threads and Golden Needles") to her solo hits ("Wishin' and Hopin," "Son of a Preacher Man") and her collaboration with the Pet Shop Boys ("What Have I Done to Deserve This"). While Rhino's three-disc Anthology is still probably the best comprehensive introduction to Springfield on the market, Dusty boils it all down to a generous single disc of the key high points.
