Avoid...Avoid ...Avoid....it is a holiday camp show that is touring the country claiming to be a tribute to Dusty. Emily Clark is more Bet Lynch than Dusty and although a good singer an insult to a legend...AVOID....I wish I had

Hi Wally

I keep saying the same avoid all these kind of shows.
They just don't get it. Near enough or close enough
is NOT GOD ENOUGH!!
They have no idea about her life, her soul or how she
would approach singing a song.
Good singers and bad wigs don't cut it.
IT IS ALL ABOUT THE MONEY!!!!!
That's what I have gathered from all of them.
This is not right, that's not right, but people still get
suckered into going because they mentioned Dusty.
I have read on the site about many so called Dusty shows,
with people trying to convince others that they must see
this particular show because so an so wrote it who had no real knowledge of
Dusty but who said that Dusty was a close personal friend of theirs.
(Close personal friends wouldn't and didn't write anything, trust me!)
or maybe whats her name sang in other stage shows or even had a picture taken with Dusty.
Of course having a picture with her makes you an expert in everything Dusty.
I will just say " SAVE YOUR MONEY" go to the shop and buy a copy of all Dusty's
DVD's which are out there, they are then yours forever to see when you want.
At no charge, and you get the real thing. Singing, looking, sounding and acting
like Dusty as she was!! Recordings and re-released records are the same. Most
Dusty supporters will have almost everything she ever recorded, and I don't think
that there will be many recordings they do not already have. There may be some
of her television shows she appeared in that may come up once in a while.
Which is great when they do. I know that I have always wanted " Dusty at the
Talk of the Town" to be shown again, however not too sure if there is a copy
anywhere. Unless Stanley Dorfman (Who directed the show) has a copy somewhere,
which would be great as it showed Dusty at her best.
Tribute and other Dusty shows are just about people trying to make Money..
Please try and remember this.

<3 Dusty :note: :thumbsup:

The Talk of the Town show is like the Holy Grail for many Dusty fans I would think Douggie but alas, as far as I know, it's never turned up. As for the Dusty tribute shows that travel the country, they were rare before Dusty died but her legendary status now means they are two a penny. I recently caught part of a young womans act in a local bar in Tenerife, not a place we normally go in, but it was 'Dusty' and so we popped in towards the end of the evening for 'a nightcap'. She could put a song across, looked nothing like Dusty, apart from the eye make-up, the frock was ok, the wig wasn't but what struck me was she was telling Dusty's story inbetween songs. Not in great depth obviously but she talked about South Africa and about Motown and her 80's and 90's years and that bit impressed me. She basically entertained the holiday crowd and reminded those who didn't know, that Dusty had more to her than her spectacular voice.
There's a part of you, that's a part of me...

As far as I am aware we have reached the end of the road with regard to any more unreleased recordings [:(]
