There's a lady on stage

Postby daydreamer » Fri Dec 18, 2009 10:05 am

The picture that Cas posted of Dusty at the Talk of the North, made me think that perhaps it would be a good idea to gather together all the pictures we can find of Dusty doing something she was so good at, performing. A couple to start with....

Samuel, it's a still from Hullabaloo in 65 and it would probably be Can't You Hear My Heart Beat.

Whenever I see these from RAH 1979 I always wish she had stayed in the UK. so many things went wrong for her ,it still hurts me to think of this. [:(]

I don't think she did Samuel. For some reason I think it looks like The Man With The Child in His Eyes.

Here's the clip to the pic. Maybe not Dusty’s most gloriouos moment, but I cherish every clip with her that’s out there. Besides, it's the only track from White Heat she's ever performed live.

oh I really disliked this when I first saw it and still dont like it now, and I dont have any kind thoughts on her host either. :no: not one of Dusty's finest moments I'm afraid.
how I wish we had a time machine and could go back and get her out of all those horrible years. [:(]

Yes an upsetting performance, bad times, time machine yes solve things if she had wanted to but "we are all wiser after the event", as they say. Reading Carole Popes book was bad enough.

yes I agree the song is good and she sang it well :bravo:
I just didnt like her "ziggy stardust" look and the crude C.Pope did nothing for me. :no:
I dont want to just remember sugary Dusty and Springfields but I just disliked this image and time for her.it became a sad descent, til the PSB.s.
thank heavens for them. :love:

I knew this clip would cause discussion, I'm quite ambivalent about it myself, to be honest.

Sometimes, I just want to grab her hand around '72 and tell her not to go to LA, not alone, not without a network both professionally and personally and no idea what to do there. Then I'd wring that vodka bottle out of her hands and tell her firmly to get a grip. In '78, I'd definitely booked a different hair dresser and stylist for her [:p] and in the '80s I'd have tried to introduce her to some less, erm, 'hairy' women (or men, or whatever she'd have fancied).

And still, it's no use. She's made her decisions and lived the life she did, and all was not pretty. Still, somehow the drama and the darker aspects of her life also is what attracts me, it adds to her legacy, just like it added to, say, Judy Garland's. There's got to be a certain extent of darkness in order to create an icon, I guess. People like Cilla Black or Anne Murray (forgive me all CB and AM fans) with their relatively orderly lives will never be 'up there' like Dusty is.

Of course we all have the right not to like certain periods or music styles in Dusty's life and career, but we can't undo them. They're there, in all their glory and with all their shortcomings, and Dusty never seemed to regret anything she did.

And what do I want to say with this sermon... Maybe that we don't need to feel ashamed of Dusty, cause she wasn't ashamed of herself or of what she did. Some things we just need to shrug at, we can't take responsibility for it. Like this clip.

Good sermon Cor, and well said, yes this is what draws us to people, like you, wish that when she left in 1973, she had ,had someone with her, as Pat said she couldn't go with her as was expecting her son, but who knows, the lady did have a mind of her own, and we all loved her for that. unfortunately some of the roads she went down were the wrong ones with the wrong people.

I agree Cor, I wasnt saying I was ashamed of what she did etc I was just sad to see her struggles and she was certainly on a merry go round at the time. I remember her saying she didnt really have much recollection of those years :? understandably, but I am just sad it happened to her
I love her warts and all :rose: ,I just wish she had escaped all that madness.
then to be written about by "her friend" in that way after she had left us,thats all I am sad about for her,she deserved better than that and it wrongly became too big a part of her memory and history.
at least she had and still has the loyalty and love from Simon,Pat, madeline etc.
maybe she would still be here and would love her retirement and know that we all still love her.
yes I also agree I would rather have had her legacy any day than the singers you mentioned.
just my own regrets "is all". [:(]

I didn't see it as a sermon Cor, just what you think and feel. I feel the same about CP as Liz does, I think she's despicable. She's got a big mouth and if you've read her book, she's more than slightly prone to exagerate. I've come to accept Dust warts and all. I'm not so sure that she wasn't ashamed of some of her antics, but it's just the way she was, because we all do silly things in our lives that we regret later, but we are not in the public eye like she was. And I just think Dusty decided to go out and live life to the full the way she wanted, and no holds barred. She didn't have a tragic life, she had a few bad years, the rest of it was brilliant I'm sure. The other thing I'd like to point out, Dusty was a hugely successful pop star, just like all those male pop stars in the 60's that went out and sowed their wild oats, some of it is bound to go to your head even if you are a woman.

It was acceptable for men to do it, but Dusty wasn't going to be confined by restrictions, restrictions were for ordinary mortals, so she did it too but in the 70's and 80's. I think you're bound to lose touch with reality a bit in her position. I wonder how any of us would have reacted if we had been in her situation, with all the adulation from fans, and everyone telling her how wonderful she was, and all the applause and money to throw around like there was no tomorrow, she must have felt like she was on cloud nine and could do no wrong. So she did her own thing, and in between she sang. So I just think we can be grateful for that. Well I know we all are.

I actually loved her performance in the Rough Trade Farewell concert, I thought the audience warmed to her immediately. And the jacket she wore is definitely my favourite jacket, but I prefer it in the first picture which was at the Hippodrome, I think she looks fab on that photo.

Yes Liz, 'ambivalence' is just the word, isn't it?

And very well said, Wendy. - (You mean the first pic I posted is from the Hippodrome then, and not from the Rough Trade concert?)

Sorry Cor, I think you are right - I always thought it was the Hippodrome, but I see she has the same popper beads on, so it must be Rough Trade - appologies.

Wend

Actually Cor on second thoughts - I think it is Live at the Hippodrome - have a look here at around 8.28 right at the end of Put Your Hands Together, I think that is the shot.

Even though I am an old sixty something and grew up with Dusty during her sixties' heyday, I can't say that I dislike this clip - there was mostly good performance and she was mostly in pitch if a little hoarse at times - I have seen and heard weaker performances, although I hasten to add that I have always enjoyed seeing Dusty no matter what and always much preferred "live" performance to lip-syncing. Didn't like the bit with Carole Pope at the end! Didn't like the severe hair or make-up either - sorry!! I have always liked the song tho' ever since first playing it on the vinyl thingy I bought as an HMV import in 1980 something!

As I was reading through all your interesting points of view, I was thinking what to say, and then Henry came along and said it for me! Well, not quite identical to my thoughts as I don't care for the clip, but everything else echoes what I would have said. What I know of Carole Pope is very little but she does milk her Dusty connection and for money too, so what's to like?

I do think that Dusty was embarrassed by some of the things she did in her life though. If she ever watched herself on the Toni Teneille Show for instance, she must have cringed. I'm sure that if she could, she would have taken back some of the times when she hurt people, we can all feel like that, even over small spats. I guess, and luckily for Dusty, much of it was bleached from her mind by the fact that she was too out of it to remember. I don't take things that are said about her to heart too much any more, and I accept her as I always did before I knew about all the bad times. She had an up and down life, that's for sure.

Agree here, being in the public eye must be so very hard,regardless of fame, there must be times you would just like to hide away from it all, never knowing what is going to be in the press, and who is suddenly going to be in your face with a camera or microphone, scary. And after her death all the stuff written about her was really upsetting, didn't want to hear this did we ? but still loved her for who she was to us.

I love this picture Cas, if you remember I won two six foot billboards in the auction last year from the O2 arena i think. Well, the one i most wanted and won got robbed before I went to collect them, because i was drunk as a lord by this time, (Dusty made me do it) and I had to run to the cash point to get more money out and then witnessed an old man fall down the escalator etc etc, and it was all so busy and frantic in the big room, but anyway to get to the point, one of the billboards has that picture on it, in fact im going to go and take a pic

Ok, ill post a pic of both of them, they arent very good because jason refused to get off the sofa and go and take a decent pic, cos im useless. I have them in my spare room, which will eventually be my "dusty room" , its where i will hang both my drawings of Dusty, drawn by our lovely wendy, and maybe a few more as time goes on, when i finally get round to having them framed, I have a fabulous folder of photos that I bought at DD 2008, there are some fabulous pictures but I dont really want to tamper with the folder because it belonged to Carole G`s close friend Michael, who sadly passed away, it would seem rude to tamper with it, but i do love to have images of dusty wherever i am, at home of work, or as my phone image, i would cover the house from top to bottom with her pictures, but obviously its not practical, her image is never far from me at all.

You may notice on the second one a patch of white in the top right corner, this is where jason propped one against the other without removing the big lumps of bluetack that had held them up when they were on display in the arena. He then thought, that it would be a good idea to not tell me, and try to remove the sticky glue with a scouring pad. Of course, he didnt realise that he had in fact, virtually destroyed some almost unique piece of dusty memorabilia, but he has since paid for that. LOL.

And your journey home from DD with those placards should be on the funny moments thread :lol: Don't worry about splitting up the folder if you want to display the pics Neil. I made the folder for Michael because that was the best way to give them to him as a pressie, but you should do what's best for you with them. I want an invite to the opening of your Dusty room btw [;)]

What a wonderful clip. 'Butterflies' has always been one of my favorites. Think the vocal on this better than the recording that was released. Thank you, thank you. [8D]
