Enjoying a successful solo career playing at home and abroad working with top headliners such as Jim Davidson and the very funny Duncan Norvelle, you may also have been lucky enough to see her performing on cruise ships for P&O. To boost her credibility as a soul artist, Dusty Springfield went to Memphis, Tennessee, to record Dusty in Memphis, an album of pop and soul music with the Atlantic Records main production team.
Released in 1969, it has been ranked among the greatest albums of all time by the US magazine Rolling Stone and in polls by VH1 artists, New Musical Express readers and Channel 4 viewers. The album was also awarded a spot in the Grammy Hall of Fame. Despite it’s current recognition, the album did not sell well and after it’s release, Springfield experienced a career slump for several years.
