Album Review

Is Ultimate Collection the best Springfield collection? Well, no; it's missing several of her '60s British hits, like "Losing You," "In the Middle of Nowhere," "Some of Your Lovin'," "Little by Little," "Goin' Back," and "I'll Try Anything." Those are all found on Polygram's The Very Best of Dusty Springfield, the wholly '60s-oriented anthology that remains a superior overview of her best material. If you want something that extends a little wider chronologically, though, this 20-track set is still fine. Her biggest Transatlantic '60s hits are here, as are her one American early-'60s hit as part of the Springfields, "Silver Threads and Golden Needles"; some small hit American singles that don't always make it into her best-ofs, like "What's It Gonna Be?" and "The Windmills of Your Mind"; a few '70s songs, including a cover of Van Morrison's "Tupelo Honey" with an additional verse not contained on Morrison's version; and her big 1987 hit with the Pet Shop Boys, "What Have I Done to Deserve This?" The liner notes include detailed commentary on each track.

It's Not A Bad Summary

It's a bit brief. The only song available exclusively is "Mama's Little Girl;" the rest of the material here can be found on other compilations with better sound quality, especially on the two-disc "Gold" set, unfortunately there are songs on this disc not available anywhere else domestically, deleted from iTunes and one of the tracks deleted is the rare "Something In Your Eyes" recorded by Richard Carpenter for his first solo album "Time" released in 1987. This summary is mastered utilizing 24-bit mapping technology so the sound may be a bit cleaner but not as full as recent compilations and if I read the opening review correctly it states "The Windmills Of Your Mind" isn't on this cd at all, but it is. My advice really? This cd can still be had at most cd stores such as Best Buy and online at Amazon complete and the price is maybe a buck or two higher but at least all the tracks will be had.

It's not a completed album.

It's not a completed album. I need 'Something In Your Eyes' which should be a song in the album.

Ultimate Collection- Dusty Springfield

Excellent collections of Dusty's Greatest hits. The song " Something in your Eyes" is missing. This song can be found on Richard Carpenter's, TIME, CD, which can be found on itunes.

Britain's greatest pop diva, Dusty Springfield was also the finest white soul singer of her era, a performer of remarkable emotional resonance whose body of work spans the decades and their attendant musical transformations with a consistency and purity unmatched by any of her contemporaries; though a camp icon of glamorous excess in her towering beehive hairdo and panda-eye black mascara, the sultry intimacy and heartbreaking urgency of Springfield's voice transcended image and fashion, embracing...
