For background check post on her UK debute - "A Girl Called Dusty". This was the US version of her second UK album - "Ev'rything's Coming Up Dusty". Here "Doodlin", "Packin' Up" and "That's How Heartaches Are Made" were omitted and replaced with the 45 A-sides "You Don't Have To Say You Love Me" and "Little By Little". Before a choice between the two you could argue the UK was the original and the US version just another exemple of "butchering". But on the other hand it is nice to get two top numbers from about the same sessions in the same place...and all five numbers showed up later on other albums anyway, so no harm done. Important is you get a stack of songs from the most sensual white soul voice ever. I know some don't agree, but to me the blend of foxy lady and girlish vulnerability luring under that soft surface is downright sexy. And this is good Dusty all the way, if you like her you'll like this selection too. Audio on this mono is brighter and wider than on the corresponding UK tracks. Personally I'd prefer her a little tighter and darker, but she could pull off any drag so it's still magic. Favorite track - "If It Don't Work Out". Originally issued in US and Canada only, also as stereo (PHS 600-210). 1999 US CD (Mercury 314 538 911-2) came with the three missing UK cuts as bonus tracks. First had label as shown here and glossy cover. (TÖZ*) (YZÄ*) (ÖXCÅ*) (FÄV*)
