  • Dusty Springfield

    She’s been called Britain’s greatest female pop star and dubbed the White Queen of Soul; and while a few newcomers like Adele may be vying for her title, there’s just no topping Dusty Springfield. Beginning her solo career in 1963, she had 18 singles make the Billboard Hot 100 by 1970. These included such classics as “I Only Want to Be with You,” “Wishin’ and Hopin,’” “I Just Don’t Know What to Do with Myself,” “The Look of Love,” and “Son of a Preacher Man.” A big fan of Motown, Springfield popularized American soul music in the U.K. and was the second artist of the British Invasion after the Beatles to have a hit in the U.S. With her impressive international record sales (in 1966, she was the best-selling female singer in the world) and signature blonde beehive, Springfield was a true ‘60s icon. Her 1969 album Dusty in Memphis has been ranked among the greatest albums of all time by numerous music press outlets and, like the Queen herself, is essential on vinyl.
