There'd be an avid golfer out there giving advice on her grip, and foot placement!

A"fair dinkum" hockey girl from way back!

Nice to see her practicing her golf swing!!

Yes Dusty showing us that she is not just a singer but can play g of how amusing.

I love this pic...she seemed very relaxed.

Need a brolly in Manchester most days. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Bend knees,keep head down and close that Varden grip.

Presumably here for her triumphant concert at the Royal Albert Hall. Little did we know that it would be her last concert appearance in this country.😒😒

Dusty was great met her once in Ipswich lovely person also met Rod Stewart a long time ago

Liked dusty such a good singer. So sad she died so young.

She was fantastic, what a voice.

The day my little daughter Alexandra was born but I didn’t have her for long only 10 days.

Dustys smile ,so infectious. Her true fans loved her all through her musical career. She was and still is our best British female singer, in my opinion. Her music still lives on.πŸ’–πŸ’–

Dusty was fantastic to work with i think this was around the time we worked a couple of gigs and a tv special

I know she’s known for her 60s looks but she really did late 70s style very well. It’s all rather subdued and quite classic.

She was brilliant Carole xx

Great lady great voice fantastic style and delivery

Love that smile beautiful Dusty xx

Her voice is amazing. Many current singers just don’t rate next to her.

She has stood the test of time and that says it all. The lovely Dusty

That photo shoot yielded many glorious photos

"It begins again"....but for us her true fans, it never stopped.

Beautiful lady dusty xx

Dusty before she was deported from South Africa for her small stance against apartheid in December 1964.

Comment on Facebook

Dusty was deported after performing to an integrated audience near Cape Town. Her manager, Vic Billings, and her group, The Echoes, were with her. The police arrived and took them to their hotel, taking their passports of them.

There was nothing ever ‘small’ about her integrity and her loyalty to her principles. This was the first time I remember being aware that there was racial prejudice - it wasn’t anything you encountered in the little hamlet where I lived.

Little did Dusty know at the time that she was causing such political furore. All she wanted was to be able to play her music to anyone who wanted to listen; irrespctive of the colour of their skin.

She stood up for BLM before it was ever thought of or cool to do so... an inherent sense of fair play. Respect.

Very brave stance! Enough to get her deported

She was a pioneer of truth

Remember watching this being reported on the evening news. Good for Dusty for making a stand. She took a lot of stick from other artists who were happy to go and play to segregated audiences. All she wanted to do was put on a show for everyone.

A legend for all time, with views ahead of her time.....

Dusty was great and in my opinion correct. Bless her heart.

She was a strong woman. R.I.P Dusty

Dusty had the guts to stand up and say no to those bigoted sods! πŸ‘πŸ‘

Never knew she was deported

Good for her

Good on dusty x

yes I remember it well

I always admired Ms. Dusty!!!

Another newbie thank you Cas πŸ’–πŸ’•πŸ’–

Yes

A magnificent voice, and a magnificent woman! "In 1964 Dusty caused a political furore in South Africa when she was deported from South Africa. ... So she had an anti-apartheid clause written into her contract and refused to perform concerts before segregated audiences, as required by the South Africa's racist apartheid system at that time."

Wonder what the conversation was about....Dusty appears to have a mischievous look on her face, and is pointing at someone/something further on

Dusty loves the flowers and the beautiful flowers love adorable Dusty.

She reminds you of Princes Diana.

It was the summer version of Thank Your Lucky Stars.

Love dusty. But first time I can say ,I dont like her dress. On the plus side, her beauty outshines again.πŸ’–πŸ’–

That dress looks like the kind of thing we had to make in school! Not one of Dusty's classics!

Was ‘Lucky Stars’ the same as ‘Thank Your Lucky Stars’? I remember the latter.

Great picture.

Love Dusty, but her nighty is a frock horror!

Dusty looked good in everything

On Dusty’s first tour as a solo artiste another female singer was in the show. Her name then was Susan Singer but she’s now Sue Holliday, a jazz singer who still performs around London. I’ve been friends with Sue and her husband for years now and she told me how she shared a dressing room with Dusty on this one nighter tour. She used to do Dusty’s hair for her before going on stage and smiled when she told me how shy Mary was. She didn’t know what to do with her hands as she was no longer in a group supporting her. Boy, Dusty learned the dramatic hand movements very quickly after this, didn’t she? It was lovely hearing about Mary, not Dusty, from Sue. Does anyone have access to any photos from this tour that show Sue with Dusty? She told me she has no photos of this time at all, which is a shame. Mary signed a card for her, which is long gone. A great shame but it’s more often that fans have the memorabilia rather than the artiste.

Next to Herman is Alan Howard, bass guitarist with Brian Poole. When they split he was replaced by Chip Hawkes.

Looks like Herman’s Hermits and Brian Poole and the Tremeloes.

Can't believe It was so long ago that i went to see her on this tour in Glasgow. My big brother took me lol

They were hard work too.

Loved them, saw so many stars!

That’s a good picture of all of them

Hard work but special πŸ’™

My favourite dusty song. Beautiful lady and beautiful voice.πŸ’–πŸ’–

Yet another great song from my favourite female singer. Looking so beautiful as usual.

And although in shadows - a rare view of Dusty's marvelous legs!

Lovelly picture of dusty great singer

It isn't the way that you look and it isn't the way that you smile it isn't the things you do make me want you so. It's got nothing to do with the wine or the music that's flooding my mine.

She's legendary I love her music i love dusty ❀

My favourite singer of all time

another great song

Gave her a welcome return to the charts after a gap of more than a year.

Beautiful talented Dusty xx

I close my eyes and count to 10 a lot myself these days !

No way ! Love the song x

One of my favourite Dusty songs x

Great song

After the last photo of Dusty by Harry Langdon, I'm not so sure about his other session shots of Dusty, including this one.However, the expression on her face is very lovely.

Wow, shes stunning. Our dusty has it all.πŸ’–πŸ’–

MAGNIFICENT LADY!

She always looked great. Look at that nice set of hair

Dusty without a beehive.....everytime !

I like these session shots. But I could never get with that contraption on Dusty's head. It always seemed like an after-thought that got in the shoot anyway.

Amazing difference in Dusty camilion

Love it!

I AM A FAN TOO BUT I AGREE THAT HEAD " DECORATION " DOESN'T WORK !..

She's lovely

A double WOW for this one. Oh dusty chuck.

A favourite track from 'A Girl Called Dusty', with lyrics so you can sing along into your hairbrush πŸ˜€ Dusty sings this in the style of The Shirelles but there is another unreleased version still out there that she recorded in the 80's in the slower style of the Carole King 'Tapestry' version. ...

I wish they would release the more recent recording of this song done in the early eighties I believe. It would be good to compare the two!! I know it wasnt finished but the vocal and most of the orchestration is there. Perhaps one day.......🀞🀞

I love this song! Dusty’s version is brilliant The cover is one of my favorite pictures and my favorite Dusty song Is I Just Don’t Know What To Do With Myself! This LP is specialπŸ’™

I've always hoped she recorded a version of the Pet Shop Boys "Love Comes Quickly" for Reputation a la Liza covering "Rent". I can hear it in my head and it sounds glorious

I loved this song. I am so glad we can keep her memory alive.

The first LP I ever had. Love it still & often play it. 🀎

What a marvelous tune. Love what Dusty did with it.

Love this song. Dusty as beautiful as ever. πŸ’–πŸ’–

Oh I live the idea of a slower version. Dusty voice is so emotive that would sound fab. Thank you for sharing ❀️

I have copies of both versions. Pure, sonic brilliance.

Love the heavy drums in the middle, she always knew how to take a song and make it better πŸ‘Œ♥️

How about that. Great and makes for a cheerful start. Dusty ohhhπŸ’–

Around the time of 'Stay Awhile' Dusty changed her hair to this style. Probably one of her most extreme beehives that no doubt divides opinion, but what has always puzzled me, as I don't believe I've ever seen a photo, is what it looked like from the back! ... See MoreSee Less

Wendy Stapleton does a fantastic Dusty show.Check Wendy's web site for shows and venues.

Lovely picture of Dusty.

Loved Dusty & The Springfields 😊 what a voice.

There were 3 hairstyles in the early days which were not my favorites, this is one. I preferred the original pageboy flip. But Dusty was so lovely, I just go with it. 😊

A classic 60s Dusty, she was definitely a trend setter!

Beautiful

Has anyone done a series of photos of all her hairstyles/wigs with approximate dates I wonder? It often seemed to me that almost every time I saw her on TV she had a different one. Always ahead of the trend (pardon the pun).

It definitely suited her the sixties were made for Dusty and Dusty was made for the sixties and with a voice like that how could she fail,and no one else around these days to take her crown!!!!!

I love the coulour her garment

Novel style, but it looks a bit odd nowadays! I preferred the pre and post hairstyles she had in the 60s, but wasn't keen on the extra attachments making her hair longer, or the curly wigs. Just my opinion, of course, and no offence intended!

I loved that style it was SO DUSTY! Most of her hairstyles were flattering and the curly wig was exceptional, didn't care much for the wigs piled on top of each other as seen on the See All Her Faces album. However Dusty certainly had style.

What a beauty .xx

I agree it's too much but don't be too hard on Dusty. I wore plaid (pants) in the 70s and liked It!😊

Oh I love that hot pink dress! 😍

It’s her eyes I always love

She was always in style.

That was all the style in those days. Many women had them.

the best

Want this dress! 😍

I remarked on "Let's talk Dusty", that her beehives defied the laws of gravity but hey let's face it she could do no wrong!!!

Ah Dusty beautiful as ever but I never did like her hair in a beehive.

Simple beauty

That is The Beehive of The Century!

The best British female vocalist ever. 🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹

Dusty Springfield

Continuing today's tribute to Peggy Lee with a little story from
Derek Wadsworth who worked with Dusty for 15 years as musician and arranger - it's his view that the "Dusty Springfield" persona had been crafted with equal fastidiousness by the woman born Mary O'Brien in west London in 1939.

"Dusty Springfield was a creation of Mary O'Brien. She was almost not like a real person. She put the whole package together - the hair, the shoes, the gestures - and she had impeccable taste. I know in particular she modelled herself on Peggy Lee. She liked the way Peggy put her eyes on one side halfway through the song and did this little smile. There's a saying that the true nature of art reveals itself only at the very highest level, and I think that was the way with Dusty."

Comment on Facebook

I was a friend of Derek Wadsworth's, first getting to know him when he was musical director for "Hair" the hippy musical at the Shaftesbury in London's West End and I was a member of the cast. I also sung with his jazz band at The Bull's Head in Barnes. He was a really lovely man, very unassuming and kind and told me lots about his time working with Dusty and being her MD. Sadly he died a couple of years ago.

Great pic RSG ?

A beautiful woman with an outstanding voice. πŸ’–πŸ’–

Dusty has said so herself in the beginning, that to become famous wasn't going to happen being the person that she was, plain Mary O'Brien. So she became another person in the persona of Dusty Springfield.

Petula Clark also admired Peggy Lee most among female vocalists and even sang two brilliant duets with her when Petula had Peggy as a guest on one of Petula's USA TV Specials.

I belueve had Dusty lived into old age, she would have become more and more Mary. Just a hunch. The world loved her voice without a persona.

If you're gonna emulate someone, only the best will do. Peggy Lee was Dusty did and Dusty is!!! xx

Fab photo..Used in the Everythings Coming Up Dusty Album..

Superb singer.

Today is the anniversary of Peggy Lee's 100th birthday. Dusty often said, Peggy Lee was the reason she sang. She also said "I had a fierce crush on Peggy Lee's voice. That's who I wanted to be. I wanted to be Peggy Lee." Dusty paid tribute to her musical heroine with a medley of her songs on her 'Decidedly Dusty' TV series in 1969 and during her Talk of the Town season that same year.

I don't know this song and I've never heard Dusty sing it but her soulful sound blew me away!

I agree. Hands down this is much better.

Love it. Cant remember this version but it's great. Another Dusty gem

Love Dusty but this is a sorry mess! As for the Spencer Davis one .........

excellent version and much superior to the other one.

If only the programme footage still existed πŸ˜ͺ

Prefer the original. One of my favourite songs of yesteryear.

Awful version. Been a Dusty fan for ever but this is just awful.
