Ruby Red Vinyl LP
In 1968, Dusty Springfield was already an international superstar with 15
hits under her belt for the Philips label when she decided it was time for a change.
What followed was one of the most legendary and momentous label moves
in pop music history: Dusty decamped to Atlantic Records, where, under the
tutelage of Jerry Wexler, Tom Dowd, and Arif Mardin, she recorded one of the
greatest albums of all time, Dusty in Memphis, and scored such indelible hits
as “Son-of-a Preacher Man” and “The Windmills of Your Mind” before moving
on to Philly soul (“A Brand New Me).
We at Real Gone Music have closely examined this crucial period in Dusty’s ca-
reer over the years, with three previous releases. But there remains one facet
of her Atlantic period which has remained largely untouched: her singles. The
Complete Atlantic Singles 1968-1971 presents the A and B-sides of all dozen
singles she recorded for the label in their original mono single mixes, on vinyl
for the first time in over 50 years (most of these single mixes weren’t even
available on compact disc until our recent CD release).
These singular sides highlight how the move to a more R&B sound at Atlantic
(also aided by producers Gamble & Huff and Jeff Barry with such players as The
Memphis Boys and The Sweet Inspirations) brilliantly capitalized on the smoky
tones of Dusty’s mezzo-soprano to create some of the most potent blue-eyed
soul ever recorded.
Mastered by Mike Milchner from original tape sources, annotated by Joe Mar-
chese, and featuring copious photos, The Complete Atlantic Singles 1968-1971 is an absolute must for any Dusty devotee or any soul fan to boot.
Ruby red 2-LP vinyl pressing limited to 3000 copies
