Dusty Springfield's former home on Aubrey Walk in Kensington is now for sale. It has been heavily remodeled and updated, and not much of the original look is left, but if you have £16.5 million to spare, and like Art Deco, this might be for you!

We have yet to investigate why, but we're pleasantly surprised Dusty's Son of a Preacher Man has re-entered the iTunes charts. Today, it's on no. 31, and on the iTunes R&B/Soul charts, it's even higher, on no. 4!!! Way to go!
Here's wishing a Happy Birthday to Dusty's background singer and long time friend, Madeline Bell!
Love from all of us at Let's Talk Dusty! x
