The British Invasion: Once Upon A Time

Dusty featured last night in a screening of “The British Invasion: Dusty Springfield” on satellite TV channel Sky Arts 1 HD (United Kingdom).

This 2010 documentary, produced by Reelin’ In The Years, featured archival interviews with Dusty, as well as performance footage of such classics as ‘I Only Want To Be With You’, ‘You Don’t Have To Say You Love Me’, ‘The Look Of Love’, ‘I Close My Eyes And Count To Ten’ and many more.

What made the documentary even more meaningful were the contributions of some of Dusty’s closest colleagues and friends - such as Burt Bacharach, Madeline Bell and Simon Bell - who spoke warmly about Dusty the woman and Dusty the artist.

Madeline Bell discussed Dusty’s profound contribution as a producer, noting that this was not always recognised by those in the studios at the time, and certainly not credited afterwards.

Simon Bell spoke about the legacy of Dusty’s music, and suggested that the singers of today could learn a lot by delving into Dusty’s back catalogue - not to copy it, but to learn something new and to add something to their own singing.

For those who have not seen the documentary, which is very well produced, it is also available on DVD.
