Dusty Springfield - Dusty In Memphis
Mix producers Jerry Wexler, Tom Dowd and Arif Mardin, Memphis best American Studio sessions players, good chorists, The Sweet Inspirations and a declining british pop diva all together in hard and enduring recording sessions. The result is an absolute pop and soul classic called Dusty in Memphis. Dusty Spring field reivented herself and never sounded so relevant. Instead of copycating the british pop harmonies made famous at the time by The Beatles, she found her redemption in Brill Building Pop (songs were penned by Carole King, Gerry Goffin, Randy Newman, Burt Bacharach) sang in a deep soul manner. It's simple: every single track sounds like a classic by itself. The copy I posted is a CD copy with the original mono versions of the singles issued from the album as bonus tracks.
