Dusty Springfield: Goin' Back – The Very Best of Dusty Spingfield; Dusty – The Legend of Dusty Springfield

Ian Birch, MOJO, June 1994

"I love Dusty Springfield. I wanted to name our daughter Dusty but I knew we couldn't because, I mean, Dusty Springsteen...She had a nice big, thick voice. She had the restraint and the grace with it that made you come into her instead of her coming out at you and beating you on the head. So much soul and very sexy, very womanly. It wasn't teenage sexuality. It was more dangerous, in a way"
