Dusty Springfield, Stay Awhile – I Only Want To Be With You (1964)
Here’s a nice find – one found recently, and in that best possible way: you know, when I wasn’t even (really) looking for it. Eyes open just enough to spot it because it was there, but busy hustling the store for almost anything else…I do love Dusty Springfield and in fact it was quite the revelation hearing her in the context of the first few CD-era Burt Bacharach compilations. From there realising I’d grown up with the voice but didn’t have a name to put to it at first. I don’t think I own anything much by Dusty on vinyl – she was always a CD/reissue one for me. The classic albums and a half dozen different compilations. But this, her American debut, was sitting there on the floor of the store ready to go out on the shelf. Read for me. And I’m chuffed to have nabbed it.
