DUSTY SPRINGFIELD: Come for a Dream – The U.K. Sessions 1970 – 1971 (CD)

During her 1968-1971 period with Atlantic Records in the United States, Dusty Springfield also continued to record material in England, where her Atlantic repertoire was released on Philips Records. In turn, Atlantic received rights to issue Dusty's British recordings from the era, but chose to focus entirely on her American sessions. In fact, it wasn t until the 90s that some of these masters (many of which originally came out on the Philips See All Her Faces album overseas) were available Stateside, but they were scattered across several compilations and were never comprehensively assembled.

Now, with the release of Come For A Dream The U.K. Sessions 1970-1971, all of Dusty s orphaned British recordings from her 1970-1971 Atlantic period have been gathered together for the first time. These 16 sides document what was intended to be a complete album plus some extra single sides and outtakes. Dusty was singing at her absolute best during this time, covering pop, rock and soul with equal power and sensitivity; thus, Come For A Dream represents a major addition and clarification to the legendary singer s discography. Notes by Joe Marchese shed further light on this tumultuous period in Dusty Springfield s career, with rare photos to boot. A perfect companion piece to Real Gone Music s recent Faithful release, which presented Dusty s missing third album for Atlantic from the same era in proper fashion for the first time.
