A few years ago (I say ‘a few’ I probably mean 20) I read an opinion, I think in the NME, that the 10-second intro to Son Of A Preacher Man by Dusty Springfield is the greatest 10 seconds of music ever recorded. It’s hard to argue with as it is very good indeed. Dusty Springfield released Dusty In Memphis in 1969 and utilised the talents of the city’s finest session musicians. It was produced by Jerry Wexler and Tom Dowd and is thought of as her best work, and is arguably one of the best albums of all time.

This is Dusty's soul-stirring best album and has become a must- have classic. Many of our great pop divas have gone to Memphis to do an album (Aretha, Dionne, Brenda, & Petula come to mind). The wonderful musicians of Memphis have a special way of working with a singer that seems to heighten their artistry. This frustrated Dusty at first, but in the end resulted in her masterpiece. Her special treatment of the songs included here show she could be a star singing any genre of music. If you like Dusty don't miss this album!
