Happy birthday to Shelby Lynne who turns 50 today (October 22). Her album Just a Little Lovin': inspired by Dusty Springfield had the tenth anniversary of its release in January of this year. Rolling Stone's notice of Shelby's birthday speaks of her "spectacular Dusty Springfield tribute disc": I confess I wasn't similarly enthused: IMHO while Shelby on her own songs at least sometimes recalls Dusty - the first time I heard Gotta Get Back I had no idea who it was but heard the "Dusty-ness" - Dusty's actual songbook and Shelby don't seem to do much for each other. But I appreciate the intent behind Just a Little Lovin'.

Any road - Shelby did have a collaborative album release with her sister Allison Moorer - who's drawn her own Dusty comparisons - entitled Not Dark Yet released last year with the duo playing four high-profile gigs in the British Isles last January. Recently Shelby has completed a starring role in the indie film Here I Am as a singer not completely unlike herself.

And here's Shelby on the aforementioned Gotta Get Back:
