Baby Boomer Fun: Dusty Springfield

Thursday is baby boomer fun day here, no real estate, so here goes....

I had forgotten that Dusty Springfield, prior to her solo career, had been with us on our transistor radios as a member of The Springfields. Their biggest hit in my memory was Silver Threads and Golden Needles in 1962.

But Dusty herself, with 10 top 40 hits between 1963 and 1970, a voice that boomed yet retained clarity and pure tones, (without benefit of modern digital trickery), remains vivid with us to this day.

This Week's Clip: Live version of her first solo hit in the US, I Only Want to be With You, which peaked at # 12 in 1963.
