I saw Peter Blakes revised Sgt Pepper cover yesterday and was disappointed that Dusty hadn't made it on there, Ray Connolley's cover is much better [:D] And not just because Dusty is on there either....honest [;)]

To see both covers and check who everyone is, see below...

What is so interesting about it is the fact that they have to go as far back as Dusty to find a comparison to Jessie J's modern day dilemma. From the article.....

An image springs to mind of Dusty Springfield saying in 1970: "I know I'm perfectly as capable of being swayed by a girl as a boy." Then, this was such a brave, lonely statement – as out of the sapphic closet a lesbian could get without being publicly stoned to death. Now, what would it be – part of a module at the Brit school, entitled: "How to make your non-mainstream sexuality work for you!"?

And....

Put bluntly, looking around, Elton John would probably conclude that it's very different for gay males than when he started out. However, if Dusty Springfield were around today, what would she see? Some openly gay females, sure, but also others, still closeted, just not as heterosexuals this time round, rather as "bisexuals". What price progress?

Like you Carole I also found it odd that she had to go back to someone like Dusty to make these comments... and of course bringing Elton John into the discussion too... :? Worth reading though...

It is a good article and Barbara Ellen makes some valid points. The subject of Jessie J's sexuality isn't a new one though. She was featured on the front of a magazine a few months ago under the headline "I like dating boys AND girls". Why the fuss now I really don't know. Its noone elses business anyway.

I'm thinkin that these so called revelations are just another 'weapon' in the battle for Saturday night viewing figures.
Its gotta be more than a coincidence that both Simon Cowell and Jessie J are featuring heavily in the tabloid comics at the moment.
I couldn't be more disinterested in either of them. :pensive: :no:

Re the article, and general comments about the press and music industries bias in favour of accepting gay male singers and reluctance to accept gay female singers... Thats slightly naive, imo.
..What can really be expected in a still male dominated world??! :roll:

:roll: I can't help thinking some of these celebrities (guys and gals) aren't honestly gay.
Perhaps to be trendy, in vogue, or as an attention getter (headlines). Naive ? Maybe.
If it's in the press I suspect motive. [}:)]
Male executives exercise dominance over males as well as females, so I can see that part of the article.
I'd rather see Dusty used as an example of artistry rather than one of social issues. :pensive:

A very good aerial view of Dusty's house in Harpsden. Next to the row of trees to the left of the house is a public footpath that runs from the top of the hill to the bottom.

Someone told me that they have put tight hedges there now, so you can't really look in from that footpath anymore. A couple of years ago, a group of us was lucky to find a few spots where we could peek through the hedges, and we took a few photos. To me, this is a sad place. Dusty knew that she was very ill when she moved there. I wonder if she ever felt really "at home" there... :pensive:

[8)] That's a big house. Could it be called an estate ? Dying don't come easy, but that place looks a lot more comfortable than a hospice, or hospital. I know Dusty was in pain, but I hope she didn't bare to much sadness there. I think I read that she liked being able to look out on the garden, and the nature there. :pensive:

Tax Code Overhaul Must Be Made A U.S Priority, Camp Says
By Richard Rubin - May 17, 2012 11:48 AM ET

The U.S. Congress and President Barack Obama should endorse a fast-track approach leading to a rewrite of the tax code in 2013, Representative Dave Camp, the top House tax writer, said today.
“Doing so would send a clear, strong message to the markets, to employers and families that Washington is serious about reforming our tax code and putting us on a path to sustained economic growth,” Camp said in a speech in Washington, according to prepared remarks distributed by his office.
Representative Dave Camp, a Michigan Republican, says Congress and President Barack Obama should endorse a fast-track approach leading to a rewrite of the U.S. tax code in 2013. Photo: Alex Wong/Getty Images
Camp, 58, a Michigan Republican, is chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee. He spoke today at a conference sponsored by Baker & Hostetler LLP, the lobbying firm Federal Policy Group and the Yale Club of Washington.
The fate of a tax code overhaul is linked to other fiscal policy issues. They include automatic spending cuts starting in January and expiration of tax cuts that comprise a so-called fiscal cliff late this year that could reduce the gross domestic product by about 3 percent if Congress does nothing.
Camp and House Speaker John Boehner, an Ohio Republican, want to couple the short-term extension of expiring tax cuts with what they both called an “expedited process” to ensure a tax code rewrite in 2013. They haven’t decided on details of the process or estimated what the consequences of inaction would be.

Indefensible Status Quo
“There is a recognition that the status quo is indefensible,” Representative Peter Roskam, an Illinois Republican on the Ways and Means Committee, said in an interview yesterday. “There’s a recognition that there’s an opportunity to do something, and I think that the public would become very dissatisfied if in the next Congress it’s not dealt with.”
The House Republican budget adopted earlier this year calls for dropping the top individual and corporate tax rates to 25 percent from 35 percent, eliminating the alternative minimum tax and reducing the number of individual tax brackets to two from six.
The proposal would require Congress to curtail or eliminate many tax breaks, and Democrats have criticized Republicans for not being specific about the most politically difficult portions of their plan.
Camp has been holding hearings and planning sessions with House Republicans.

Dusty Springfield Song’
“Clearly, progress has been made,” he said. “This isn’t just some Dusty Springfield song, and we aren’t just sitting around ‘wishing and hoping and thinking and praying’ that tax reform will get done.”

The administration hasn’t proposed an overhaul of the entire tax code. It won’t do so because negotiations last year with Republicans proved “impossible,” Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner told Camp at a Feb. 15 hearing.
“Your side walked away from the table three separate times,” Geithner said. “You guys were not ready.”
Camp urged business groups and others with a stake in the outcome to get involved in the process of making those tradeoffs.
“Tax reform cannot be achieved if everyone retreats to their four corners,” he said. That is “why we are now struggling under the weight of a tax code that bears significant responsibility for the sluggish economic recovery.”

No Decisions
He also said no decisions have been made on reviving miscellaneous tax breaks that expired at the end of 2011. These so-called extenders include the research and development tax credit and accelerated depreciation for motorsports tracks.
“If extenders are beneficial and are helping the economy, then they should be seriously considered,” Camp said. “On the other hand, if an extender has outlived its value, and if it is not producing the economic benefits it once was, then we need to determine whether there is merit in continuing that provision.”

ImageLast summer Karen posted the program from the In Dreams jukebox musical featuring Suzi Jary as Dusty & also Connie Francis. Suzi's currently involved in an apparent revamping of In Dreams entitled The Twist in which she reprises Dusty & Connie & adds her impersonations of Brenda Lee & Petula Clark. The show's website - http://thetwistshow.com/pictures.html - lists dates from this coming July to November of next year. Here's Suzi with the last part of SOAPM leading into Middle of Nowhere.

ImageHere's WhatsOnStage.com's assessment of Suzi Jary's impersonation in The Twist: "Headlining the performance is Dusty Springfield who, as the spotlight reveals her, looks like a bizarre mixture of Cruella De Ville and Lily Savage as she is topped off by the most horrendous, lopsided, huge, peroxide wig. Her voice is superb, and her flawless version of You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me is only marred by the laughter emanating from an audience that is still reeling from her strange appearance."

I did think the closeup of Suzi as Dusty appeared rather caricatural but assumed the look would come across as less extreme to an audience viewing the stage: that this evidently wasn't the case at this specific performance is hopefully just a matter of how this specific venue - the Worthing Pavilion - is set up. It's a shame if that's not the case as even recorded by mobile phone the Youtube clip of Suzi as Dusty was vocally & physically impressive - no need to have any parody element factored in.

If anyone would like to read the entire review: http://www.whatsonstage.com/reviews/the ... re%29.html

BTW - her name is Suzi Jary, not Suzy Jary as cited in the review.

ImageThe US edition of The Voice debuted last night with Dusty's songbook - as far as I'm aware - making it's debut on the series via a rendition of SOAPM. I was dropping in & out of The Voice from other channels so I missed the SOAPM singer's backstory: I've learned online this morning that her name's Jessica Sharpe & she's a hairdresser - nice touch for someone doing a Dusty song! - from North Carolina. I didn't think Jessica's voice & SOAPM did much for each other with her sounding gritty rather than sultry: her performance didn't move - literally - any of the judges & she seems to be regarded (or not) as a non-event in the online recaps of the show with her emotional reaction to being passed over being commented on more than her performance. Perhaps if Jessica had sung this song she'd still be in contention:

yea..I agree with the judges. There is some pretty good talent this year, so fa,r and she just didn't cut the mustard.
Meanwhile driving up from the cape..the provincetown radio station was doing a Hal David tribute , which mostly means a David/Bacharach tribute..and it was nice to hear that they chose Dusty's version of 'Anyone Who Had A Heart'. I don't hear her version of this song played often, if at all, over here. nice

For those in the UK, two Dusty related repeats this week. Tonight on BBC4 at 10pm is "Toast", the drama about the childhood of chef Nigel Slater set to Dusty's songs. Then Friday on BBC4 at 9pm "The Queens of British Pop", which begins with Dusty.

I know this was posted a long time ago, but I'm a new member.
I refer to the story covering the One Show and Dusty's beehive.
My dad is 'Mark' aka her hairdresser.
We have lots of memorabilia of Dusty, as she was also my brothers godmother.
I'm really proud to have known her, she was a formidable woman.

Not sure if this was ever posted, but a brief blurb someone posted on Allee Willis' website regarding "I Wish That Love Would Last" (with a heading that misleadingly implies the song was from the film Norma Rae), followed by a comment from Willis:


Dusty Springfield “I Wish That Love Would Last” song from Norma Rae

Allee wrote this track , “I Wish That Love Would Last” which was the flip side of a single titled “It Goes Like It Goes” (written by David Shire & Norman Gimble) and this was released in 1980. This was a song featured in Norma Rae and the track “It Goes Like It Goes” won an Academy Award for best original song. The song written by Allee is considered a rarity among Dusty fans as it rarely pops up on anything and I cannot find it listed on any soundtrack. That is why I am including the pics posted here. “I WIsh That Love Would Last” can be found on the following 2 compilations. RIP in Dusty.


Allee Willis says:
May 14, 2011 at 9:16 am
I had absolutely no idea that my song was on the flip side of that single! As I’ve said a trillion times before, the songwriter is always the last to know.

This was the first song of mine Dusty did. I remember standing in a parking lot talking to her about it. David Lasley and I wrote this right after we wrote “Lead Me On”. My other two Dusty songs were “Send It To Me” and, of course, WHIDTDT.

Dusty had the best stack-o’-sweet-rolls hair ever!

I know a lot has been written on the board regarding Dusty's stage frocks etc. However having seen "the Dress" at the party on Saturday, ably worn by Laura and Kristin, I came home and watched my fav YT of "Up on the Roof" (in colour) I realized that Dust was wearing the same design dress but in lilac. I wondered how often she used the same design but in different colours/materials?. Another point about her costumes, when appearing on the Andy Williams shows,in the States, I assume that she was dressed by the show. All of them are unusual for her as she displays more of her shoulders than perhaps we're use to. I wonder how Dusty felt about that?.
I'd rather see the world the way it used to be.......

On pages 112-113 of the new book commemorating the Rolling Stones fiftieth anniversity called THE ROLLING STONES 50 this photograph appears. It's from the 1965 New Music Express Winners Concert. Next to the photo is this quote:

"For me the best performer in this photo is Dusty Springfield. She was great" - Charlie Watts

This past week I went to see Swing Out Sister perform in NYC, and got to speak (and dance!) with Corinne Drewery next door after the show. She's said before that Dusty is one of their influences so naturally I had to bring up Dusty. And she told me the following story:

Swing Out Sister's longtime producer Paul Stavely O'Duffy knew Dusty and had produced one of the songs on the Reputation album (Arrested By You). In 1996 they (Corinne, Paul and Andy Connell) wrote Dusty a song that they hoped she would record for their next album, Shapes and Patterns. They sent Dusty the track and she got back to them saying she loved the song, but she was ill and not well enough to record it. [:(]

Corinne went on to do it herself and it's a lovely song, actually one of the best on the album. I got a bit emotional when she told me this story, as it just fed into the could-have-beens, had Dusty not gotten ill. :pensive: I wish so much she had stayed with us a bit longer. [V]

But anyway, here is the song they wrote for Dusty, "Now You're Not Here".

@Maggie- they're my favorite band as well. The live show they put on these days is a real treat. :thumbsup:

@Darren- they've also continued releasing albums- in fact, i think they've done their best work in the new millenium. They were supposed to tour the US in 2010 but the volcano erupted and they had to cancel, so I was really anticipating the show. They didn't disappoint. [:D]

I met them when they were promoting It's Better to Travel. I was in college and interning at a radio station in San Francisco. They were quite nice. I was hoping they'd tour the West Coast, but unfortunately not this time. I'm glad they're still out there.

Two mentions of Dusty on WGBH's (public television in Boston)" open source. Hopefully the links will work for you to see the actual clips, if interested.

"And then the people from Atlantic wanted us to record Dusty Springfield, Wilson Pickett, and the Sweet Inspirations. So we cut all three of them. And um, Dusty Springfield, we had a good album with her. We had a real good album with her. We did "A Brand New Me" with her, which was a big record for her." -- KENNY GAMBLE

http://openvault.wgbh.org/catalog/9b9d7 ... art-2-of-4

"One of the things I felt Philadelphia always got the rotten end of the stick on was the sound. Uh, the Motown sound, that was great. All the same musicians playing on the records. But look at Philadelphia. It wasn't on the same label. You had, you had, uh, the Stylistics on Avco, you had the Spinners on Atlantic, you had Jerry Butler on Mercury. Uh, Gamble and Huff had their groups on PIR. But look at, Atlantic Starr on A and M. I mean if you could lump them all together and realize that this is all the same musicians playing the tracks, meaning, they'd have a lead singer, whoever it is, from Jerry Butler to even Dusty Springfield. But the same musicians were playing on all those records. And I felt the Philadelphia sound was just as important if not more so than Motown." -- TOM MOULTON

Seeing this snippet from an article on Dolce and Gabbana in Milan, made me wish I'd at least peeked in the window when I was there in June! It also reminded me of this mirrored Dusty that was for sale in a shop in London in 2004. I wonder if it made its way to D&G? [:)]

LEGENDARY songstress Dusty Springfield emerges from a glass mural, a portrait of a Madonna - the original - is splashed across the back of a chair, and a huge porcelain rooster evokes the spirit of Sicily. Entering the vast private salon of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana on the top floor of their global headquarters on a grim autumn day in Milan is like stepping on to a catwalk at one of their famously flamboyant shows.

Jennifer Holliday includes The Look Of Love and dedicates it to Dusty on her new album.

All of the songs on the album are dedicated to an artist associated with the song including
Love Me By Name (dedicated to Barbra Streisand, not sure of the connection there,did Barbra record it?)

Yes me too. I would have loved to have seen her laughing hysterically too!

A film entitled Wishin' & Hopin' is in post-production with a scheduled release this holiday season: based on the lighthearted 2009 novella by Wally Lamb, the film's focus is the Christmas season of 1964 as experienced by Felix a fifth-grader at a New England parochial school. Wyatt Ralff of Moonrise Kingdom is Felix, & is supported by a well-known if not stellar cast: Blanche Baker, Conchata Ferrell , Meat Loaf, Danny Nucci, Cheri Oteri, Molly Ringwald & Annabella Sciorra. BTW Felix's last name is Funicello: guess what iconic female he's related to? Not sure if how much mention the iconic female who sang W&H gets: I checked the preview for the novella at Google books & was disappointed not to find any references to Dusty at all (I can only wish & hope there are references to her in the pages omitted from the preview.)

A bunch of clippings and some scrap books have come to me today and I've been going through them. This tiny little one, with hindsight, is more than a bit creepy.

Not nice, but little did we know what horrors we would read some 50 years on.
I'd rather see the world the way it used to be.......

Although she is not featured on a duet, there is a nice passing reference to Dusty in this review below of Van Morrison's new duets album


"Dusty Springfield - another female vocalist who came of age in the 1960s, albeit on the other side of the Atlantic - would be coaxed out of retirement in 1987 for a masterful duet with Pet Shop Boys' Neil Tennant. 'What Have I Done To Deserve This' could hardly have sounded more typical of 1980s electro-pop, but Springfield rose to the challenge with a vocal that recalled the downbeat majesty of her work two decades earlier."
