The Love Of A Boy

There’s a beautiful rendition of “The Love Of A Boy’ by Dusty Springfield on a newly released UK DVD ‘The Liverpool Sound’ recorded in Melbourne, Australia, in 1964. Serene Dominic makes special mention in his book of Dusty’s live BBC radio performance of the song, which only exists in poor quality ...

Friday Night Is Music Night

I can't see that anyone has mentioned Radio 2's 'Friday Night Is Music Night' tonight (31) with Burt and Joss Stone. Recorded live at London's Eventim Apollo, the broadcast lasts for almost two hours from 8.00pm.

Re: Kritzerland to release London cast recording of Promises, Promises

It's odd that Kritzerland should claim this to be the first release of the Original London Cast Recording as they issued a limited edition of 1000 in 2010 (KR 20016-3) with what appear to be the same liner notes by Bruce Kimmel. I don't see a catalogue number for the 2020 release. Maybe they mean th...

Re: Dionne's New Single

I don't wish to shatter any illusions but, while the release is new, the recording is not. It probably dates back about 10 years or maybe even longer. Some time ago, a Dionne fan who obviously had a private copy posted it on YouTube but I haven't checked recently to see whether it's still there.

Re: Origin of This Guys In Love

The song was originally written (or at least originally recorded) as "That Guy's In Love With You" which, with a few lyric changes along the way, gives it a completely different meaning. Danny Williams recorded and released the song under this title in 1967, which predates Herb Alpert's recording.

Re: Bacharach on BBC radio this Sunday, Oct 12th

I’m sure that Burt and Elaine Paige never came within a million miles of one another for this interview. Burt was obviously in the States because he referred to a performance ‘here’ when it had clearly taken place in the US. The programme probably used a pre-recorded set of ‘answers’ and Elaine Paig...

'What Are You Doing The Rest of Your Life' was recorded in 1970 and, although it must rate as one of Dusty's best performances, it was overlooked for her 1972 album See All Her Faces. It was released for the first time in 1994 and the last compilation to include it is the UK double CD "Classics and ...
