Brian Matthew I remember him well and he was always knowledgeable in his later program sounds of the 60s. He regularly played Dusty records.
I still listen to Sounds of the Sixties with Tony Blackburn on a Saturday morning. There was Dusty song on this morning, All I See Is You. Lovely song.
He had a lovely voice and met every body in the sixties 🎶 fantastic
Great programme and what a fantastic singer Dusty was
Brian Mathews was the bees’ knees. How many years did he do that show? It seemed like he was going for decades. Still miss it!
So true. Loved Brian Matthew.
Dear Brian Matthew and the Reader's Digest 7" Flexi-disk - remember it well.
Brian Mathews was a legend on radio he was well respected by all the stars of the day
Dusty looks so bubbly and delightful
Two greats, Brian Matthew is also sadly missed his radio shows were the best.
Loved them both. Happy days. X
Brian was the king of Saturday morning.
TOTAL GEM !!
She was our best from the sixties.
Apologies everyone it should have been Tony Blackburn not Alan Freeman. I must have been locked up to long 🙄
I used to listen to Sounds Of The Sixties with Brian Mathew every Saturday morning for years and years. He was such a professional, and like an old friend. When Brian passed away and Tony Blackburn took over, I stopped listening.
As we know, Dusty made an incomparable recording of Goin' Back but she often sang it live too and this version featured in her TV series 'Dusty' in August 1966. Goin' Back first entered the chart this week in 1966 and eventually reached no.10. www.youtube.com/watch?v=yqlB-vcQvjc... See MoreSee Less
I've returned to this song all my life and still believing "thinking young and growing older is no sin" will forever resonate in my heart as a truth that has always comforted me. Dusty's version is the definitive one for me.Love you Dusty.xx
Loved her beautiful lady amazing voice xx
One of the best songs of its generation. A stunning piece of work. Nobody could have sung this better. Iconic.
Totally agree Andrea, I love Dusty too, but have never liked Son of a Preacher Man, she sang so many other amazing classics, I Close My Eyes and Count to Ten and If you go Away , are particular favourites
Amazing voice ❤️❤️
Love this song written by Carole King and Gerry Goffin...I think she sang a few of their compositions.
"Goin'Back" and "I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself" are both fabulous and my favourite Dusty Springfield classics.
Stunning song. The incomparable Dusty at her best
Another great Goffin/King song, sung beautifully by Dusty.
Talented lady... Loved Dusty, an absolute legend!! ❤️
One of my all time favorite Dusty songs.
Makes me cry, I love this song so much
Lovely song still sounds amazing today
One of my favorite songs of hers!
This is one of my favourite songs of all time.
Definitely having this at my funeral
It was played at Dusty’s funeral... I think I would like the same:
“I think I'm goin' back
To the things I learned so well in my youth
I think I'm returning to
Those days when I was young enough to know the truth” 💕
Loved Dusty so much. Even called my puppy Dusty when I was about 15. Just wish the radio would play all her songs instead of repeatedly playing "Son of a Preacher Man."
Had my hair done the same with flowers looks good, Going Back great number sung it myself for years love it, what a star 🌟
Can I reccomend you all watch her singing "quiet please there's a lady on stage " at the Royal Albert Hall,it's on you tube, "marvellous "
A beautiful song with lots of memories for me
what u gonna say i private was my fav we will never forget her she was amazing xx
I cry when I hear this song.. It was played at her funeral.
Going back was my favourite Dusty song along with I just don't know what to do with myself.
my favourite Dusty song ever,all hersongs were good but this one is the one I always put on first,and often replay.
Love this "look" of Dusty's, even though this was possibly one of the real low points of her career. It was a big mistake getting involved with Peter Stringfellow, who I felt, exploited her when she was at her most vulnerable. There was a real danger that we would never have seen her again, such was the shattering of her confidence, but there, waiting in the wings thank God were Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe.
What a beautiful and very talented woman she is. God bless you Dusty.
Best always, Tony Amendola
This was not a good time, it is not a picture or a "look" or a dress for her fans to celebrate. It was one of the lowest points, and humiliating for her- humiliating musically, the worst kind there could be for a perfectionist like Dusty.
She was the best, beautiful woman, fantastic singer
Bless her.rip one fantastic blue eyed soul singing lady. Much mist on the n soul scean🎶✊🎶🎼💖
What happened with Stringfellow I never knew about that
Beautiful Photo of the late Dusty Springfield. ❤
Sadly missed a legend. Rip.
Wow dusty .love the hair, she was so beautiful.💖
Whats it gonna be is brillient by her.little by little.
Best female voice ever xx
This lovely lady was right up there at the top, as a soul singer.r I p
I still got an unopened LP (in plastic) by Dusty Springfield!! Original - Golden Hits!🌟
Two years after Dusty duetted with Solomon Burke on Ready, Steady, Goes Live!, and later that evening with him at the Flamingo Club, she ended the first episode of 'Dusty' in 1967 with a rousing version of his 'Everybody Needs Somebody to Love'. www.youtube.com/watch?v=1FMzDLrPnjE...

Dusty was responsible for the great success of several American women singers/groups after seeing and meeting them during her first trip across.
She was great friends with many of them and their music scene wasn't as 'stuck up' as the UK used to be, although their race issues sadly sprang up at times!!!
She was a strong woman. Miss your singing
The constant hounding by the press into her personal life was largely responsible for Dusty's defection to the United States.
i love this girl and her songs
Like Nat King Cole would say Dusty. You are Unforgettable!
Lovely lady! What a voice! Sadly missed! xxx
Appropriately enough, when she says this in Definitely Dusty, guess who pops up in the next segment? And yes, it's That Soundbite.
Dusty had the most outstanding voice.❤❤
She was so much her own woman!!!! I loved her for it!!!!
Typical British gutter press build you up then decide to destroy you.
Not to me, you're not. <3
A beautiful lady and a stunningly brilliant singer.
Remember this from years ago
That's been common knowledge for over sixty years, still the best female singer the U.K. Ever had.
Ze was toch lesbisch
She had a tough road as a solo female performer who pretty much had to fight her own battles. Dusty got rougher treatment from the U.K. press and even people in her own industry compared to say Alma Cogan, Shirley Bassey, or Helen Shapiro. Maybe it was because she wasn’t afraid to speak her mind. When you think of the whole South Africa thing, it’s amazing how she was criticized compared to The Beatles who were applauded for refusing to perform for segregated audiences in America. A double standard? You bet! The UK media just didn’t like a female pop star with a mind of her own. But it also happened in America to singers like Judy Garland, Aretha Franklin, and Barbra Streisand: ladies who never shied away from controversy. Look what happened to Eartha Kitt when she famously told off LBJ and Lady Bird Johnson TO THEIR FACES at the White House about her opposition to the Vietnam War. Her career was practically over in America for a decade before she returned in triumph in the 1978 Broadway musical “Timbuktu”.
