  • According to what I've heard, people have written some pretty horrific books about Dusty Springfield over the years. This one seemed to be on the high quality end of the spectrum, so I bought it along with The Complete Dusty Springfield, which I haven't read yet. When I first got into 60s music years ago, Dusty Springfield and Françoise Hardy were the first females I really dug. I've been wanting to learn more about Dusty for a long time, but the library only had crappy books about her that I d [...]


  • "For being such a well-regarded singer, there are actually few books written about the life and music of Dusty Springfield. With her biography Dusty, British music journalist Lucy O’Brien does an excellent job of tracking the peaks and valleys of the beehived diva’s incredible career. As a matter of fact, a more appropriate title for this book would also belong to one of Dusty’s albums — See All Her Faces. One of the great contradictions about Dusty is that she never truly reconciled her [...]


  • Huh. I bought this partly because it seemed favorably reviewed on here - but, the writing was really weird. It didn't get much into the really juicy details of Dusty's life, who her lovers were, etc. The author was really preoccupied with dryly describing how each single charted and giving pretty boring synopses of Dusty's albums.

  • It's a decent read that was written without the sensationalism that dogged Dusty for much of her career in England. I like the nonjudgmental tone of this book. Reading this has also given me more appreciation of Dusty's unique vocals during the 60's.



  • A vastly inferior biography of Dusty Springfield, compared to "Dusty: An Intimate Portrait of a Musical Legend" by Karen Bartlett.
