The recording of "Memphis" saw Dusty at the very top of her vocal prowess. She doesnt just sing these numbers...she ACTS them, so that we feel that she is experiencing all the emotions of the number. Electrifying!!! xx
oh yes, this is so haunting and evocative. So often her superb vocalizations were overproduced. I think that's why the songs from the early-mid 60s that she produced and then Dusty in Memphis have such a stunning musical power, whereas after that we have quite a few amazing vocals in musical soup.
Dusty had a preponderance for recording material for movies that sank without trace, leaving her superb vocalization often overlooked. This is yet another example of one of those "hidden jewels" that was deserving of so much more!!! xx
A true classic, often overlooked, from the aborted album, "Longing." The vulnerability and fragility of her vocals is awe-inspiring. Thank goodness this track eventually saw the light of day. A masterpiece from a truly Beautiful Soul. xx
