On the other side of the tracks

I think I've heard every track recorded by Dusty, but there's a live track called On the other side of the tracks that I've never heard. Would anyone be able to post it on here. I'd love to hear it. Has anything new surfaced lately? The last discovery I heard about was Sweet Charlie. Thanks.

Completely unknown to me and not listed in The Complete Dusty Springfield by Paul Howes.

Do you have any additional information, such as when and where Dusty would have recorded this track, the producer, writer, etc.? What was your source of information?

Checking the web, the only tune I can locate is a song from Cy Coleman's Broadway show Little Me.

As far as I am aware, Dusty sang this song once and once only. That was on the ITV programme Sunday Night At The London Palladium on 24 October 1965. She didn't record it for Philips.

The song was on the B-side of Jackie Trent's No 1 hit in the UK Where Are You Now in 1965, so it earned a tidy sum for its writers in the UK. As Ed mentions. the song came from the score of the musical Little Me.

Oh silly me! I only checked TCDS under "Dusty in the Recording Studio" for a reference to this track, and neglected to check "Dusty Live Performances on Radio and Television." Duh!

Yes, Sunday Night At The Palladium, 24 October, 1965.

Thanks for the replies. I've heard most of Dusty's rare live tracks, but this one is proving very difficult to find. If anyone has this I'd love to hear it. Many thanks. [:)]
