Dusty Springfield

I'm sure we all have our favourite from Dusty in Memphis, for me it's 'I Don't Want to Hear it Anymore'. In 1980 Dusty re-recorded the song for a movie called 'Love and Money' and though we don't get to hear it uninterrupted in the film clips, it's certainly worth a listen for the differences as well as the similarities to the original.

Jerry Butler did an admirable version first, but my favorite is by Scott Walker.

The producers of the film probably didn't want to pay Atlantic for the rights to the original. I can't say it fits the action on the screen all that well -- the director must have been a fan. It is interesting to hear Dusty revisit the song with a voice and vocal style that had evolved...

I did NOT know about this! Wonder if we'll ever uncover the 1980 Will You Love Me Tomorrow?

Written by Randy Newman. Love it

How great to get all the information and we do have a fabulous encyclopedia of Dusty knowledge and facts. Most appreciated, appropriate and grateful I am. Thank you. So much fun to discover more. πŸ’–

I think Dusty had dispensed with the early sixties "bob" wig by 1969, so this would appear to place more doubt as to the authenticity of the photo.

Was this in Australia? The name of the theatre made me wonder.

Here’s what King Curtis looked like in 1969. Compare his features to the guy in the Mingus photo and it immediately becomes apparent that it’s no more him in that photo than it is Dusty...

"Birdland". Think it's shot late fifties, early sixties. It's not her. Is anyone actually certain that is King Curtis, and that the musician known for different genres of music than jazz hung out with Mingus? I'm white, but also doesn't look unlike Coltrane to me.

Stunning photograph of beautiful dusty ❀

Is that the same King Curtis who worked with Buddy Holly ?

WOW!! What a SHOW!!!!

And if it isn't Dusty, wouldn't the photo still be valuable because of King Curtis & Charles Mingus? By the way, was that Patsy Cline sitting next to Charles Mingus?

And that doesn’t look like King Curtis.. could be Patsy’s back up singer and boys from the band

Dusty wasn't the only lady who wore her hair like that.. and to be honest, that doesn't even look like her hair! Why is there a halo around the first man's head? May be photoshopped...

Definitely NOT Dusty . Looks a bit like Jackie Trent to me .

The woman in question has a dimple. I don’t think Dusty had dimples. Did she?

NO , THAT IS'NT DUSTY'.. SIMILAR BUT NOT !.. . THE PROFILE IS NOT THE SAME - EG..CHEEK BONES TOO PRONOUNCED FOR A START ...πŸ€”πŸ˜²πŸ™‚

She is similar but does not look like Dusty in other images of her in profile. The cheeks especially are not right but the chin and nose also are off just a little.

Not Patsy Cline either.

Chances are that whoever ends up buying it, will do so in the belief that it is Dusty, whatever the reality. IMHO it’s not.

Not Dusty, chest is too big.

All four heads look as if they have been superimposed on other's bodies

I don't think that's dusty her face is not elongated that one is more chubby ??

Me thinks it's another "Wanna be Dusty" and not the lady herself.πŸ˜‰

The lady looks like Raffaella Carrà πŸ€”

Definitely not Dusty βœ‹πŸΌ

NOT Dusty! Looks similar but I say no not her.

Without a doubt it’s not the great Dusty

That's not Dusty in my opinion

It isn’t Dusty she didn’t have dimples.. maybe it was King Curtis’s date

No. Too round a face. Almost certainly an American.

It does not look like Dusty to me.

Looks like Jackie Trent to me

I don't think it is at all.

Definitely not Dusty!

I think it could be Twinkle?

How lovely for them to hang out together for the evening. I bet they had a great time at the concert too.

His dream come true. She was his heart throb as a kid, had his bedroom walls plastered with pics of Dusty.

Would turn back the clock for this lovely singer, she was such an icon of our time.

She was truly wonderful. A superb, unique voice.

Love this song although it was a bit short, her voice is so emotive, should have been a bigger hit.

Can't say I ever liked this song, but Dusty looks fabulous singing it.

fab and I loved her dresses

Was just swaying back and forth to Some of Your Loving this morning!

WOW! This is a total gem ... splendid photo ... captures Dusty's beauty, inside and out.

I saw Dusty when she appeared at my parents inn "The Crown", Turners Hill. Nr. Crawley. West Sussex at a gig organised by the Gatwick Airport Hotels managers assoc., She sang two songs accompanied by a piano.

Love that song!❀️

I tried to like it an million times!!!❀️❀️❀️❀️❀️ I love this

Wonderful Dusty

Never be another Dusty unique

Gorgeous

A star. Period.

Interesting!!!!

Beautiful

Dusty must have wondered if her time at the top was over as this single only just crept into the top 40. She would suffer many more puzzling non-entries in the years to come.

One of a kind!

Loved Dusty,best female ever even now,no one comes close,thanks that we have her music,never tire of listening to her,much missed,xxxx

Classy tune - Helen Shapiro did a very good version of it too.

The first U.S. single release ("b" side of "All cried out") that we in the U.K. were deprived of.

Adore this song - you feel the pain.

Brilliant Dusty set up and great song.πŸ’–

Was considered for a single but lost out to Losing You.....

What a fantastic song.

My favorite Dusty song!!!

Wonderful πŸ’™

Pretty

Love Dusty but not that song.

I love love that song!

Love it.

This is the remix issued years later--which was an outtake --a guide vocal--please check out Dusty's original mix from 1964--its FABULOUS.

There's been a couple of good programmes about the Canyon on Sky Arts. Dusty not mentioned but good description of the febrile atmosphere in the late 60s and early 70s.

Thank you for showing this,was great to see where Dusty lived.πŸ€πŸ–€πŸ€πŸ–€

Lots of great information here about miss opportunities on hits in such a short clip,

I know that she was living with a lot of issues during this period but did they really preclude her from recording the songs the guide mentioned? It seems odd to me that she wouldn’t be able to record while Elton John who shared a lot of the same issues at the same time as Dusty was at his zenith.

Lovely house , shame she was so troubled in it x

What a lot of information I never knew.Thankyou

I didn’t know this either. Thank you

I have audio but so visual? πŸ€”

Wow!

Fascinating.

Thank you for sharing x

You can guess from the fence surrounding the house how steep the road is! The house has been sold and modernised since I was there in 2017 (with Patricia O. Rodriguez). An old lady used to live there. Looks really great now!

Gorgeous! I'd post this in a Dusty group I'm a member of but sadly, they hate anyone mentioning anything about Dusty's sexuality.

I hope one day you give your heart to someone and they will hold it tight as if it's their own. I hope one day you wake up and have something or someone to live for. I hope one day you can go to bed smiling without a worry in the world. I hope one day the battle is over and you've won. I hope one day you meet someone who makes you realize how beautiful you truly are.

Best singer Ever RIP the lovely brilliant Dusty πŸ’Ÿ

Great thing she did!!! She is a true treasure to this day!!!

With that wonderful voice she should have been a huge international star for all of her life , she was a unique artist.

Loved Dusty one of our finest singers πŸ‘such a unique voice πŸ‘πŸ‘sadly missed ..by so many people ❀️🌹

We fans are so very grateful you did. RIP we love you & miss you greatly ❀

Talented lady with a great singing voice. Produced some memorable hits in the sixties. Sandie Shaw was another good female vocalist of that period.

She looked a bit like Bette Midler dark don’t you think ........ sweet soul x

And we're glad she did, despite the difficulty it caused her.

You certainly managed that, Dusty.

But still wasn't happy But fantastic lady x

Dustys gorgeous eyes. Best female artist ever.❀❀

She certainly did!

With her new glamorous image, a girl called Dusty was created and her journey to stardom became a beautiful reality.xx

Always loved

Amen to that

.......... and she’s wearing my dress again ! She must have loved that dress as much as I did. Oh ! Those bouffants πŸ’ž

I was at the brooklyn fox 1964 Christmas show with Murray the K and the swinging Swarey. I saw them live it was a great show with all the great motown stars, I'll never forget it.

Myself on Dusty’s right early 1960s a very talented lady

What a collection of talent and Ronnie Spector is still rockin'! How we all wish that Dusty was too!! xx

They had the whole package Immaculate great Song's great voice fantastic

Loved dusty and the ronnetts great singers then

This week is the 56 anniversary of the Brooklyn Fox Labor Day Shows where Dusty and the Ronettes shared a dressing room

I was at this show! Searchers, Loving Spoonful, Motown

Dressing room keys must be returned to the stage doorman after the show.πŸ’•πŸ’•

Wigs too!

maybe it's just me but I don't think those hairstyles were that attractive on girls/young women that age. I like the long Michelle Phillips type look of the late 60's and early 70's

Has anyone noticed that sign above Dusty’s head? I’m trying to decipher it, but it’s not just normal mirror-writing - I’m quite good at that - but reversed as well, somehow. However that was done - and then put in that photo - well that’s bugging me!

I love it ... I think dusty had used Sudden Beauty and the Ronettes of course used Aqua Net!! Ahh I bet their dressing room smelled so so good!! Beautiful women!

Some of the biggest icons in the Mod scene in Great Britain.

If only they'd recorded together.....pretty much a dream team.

3 beautiful talented ladies. xx

Smashing pic Dusty is just immortal.

I think this is what Dusty referred to as the battle of the beehives!!!

Amazing voices

These ladies had the "chops"

The sign says, keys to dressing rooms must be returned after the show, lol.

Dusty looks so happy

Yep, that’s a lot of hairspray for sure πŸ‘

For one thing above trio pic lettering is backwards, if that helps.

I always loved this photo...she really studied her music!

Fabulous photo of the wonderful Dusty relaxing. I see she is wearing the lovely stockings that I adored and managed to find a pair the same. Dusty looking stylish whatever she wears. What an icon and so missed.

Memories of a record player like that, had a few of Dustys 45s “Wishin n Hopin” never thought much about Icons in those days , but then I saw her live in the Television Studios, I’ll never forget that night , she was a sensation and could sing anything ❀️

My favorite photo of Dusty.

Dusty was great.I was singing at the same time in pubs and clubs loved it.

Loved Dusty Springfields music. Don't hear that much of it on Radio Manchester.......surprising
