... with Dusty.
The other day purchased a Dusty Springfield 'best of' CD and wow what a voice she had. Grew up listening to lot her 60s stuff, and you hear her played on the radio.
The remastered cd is something else.
The best British female vocalist? I'd say so and some.
Have to agree PP
Look out for the 4 disc set "Simply Dusty" too

Another fan here too, though to my shame all I own is a Hits Compilation CD from a few years back (£2 from FOPP), plus Dusty in Memphis (the one with both Stereo and Mono mixes). Both get a spin every few months or so when driving around in my van at work.

Amy Winehouse and Dusty are head and shoulders above all female singers. Both immensely distictive.
Dusty has always been quite amazing.

Lol, don't think anyone actually mentioned how she looked though ?
She has a quite brilliant voice is what we are saying.
Indeed - In love with her music, although she looked pretty sassy in some pictures.
Yeah, Dusty looked nice and feminine in a good lot of photo's. What a voice !
Both superb I agree, but not head and shoulders above all others. I can think of plenty of other excellent female singers - Nina Simone, Ella Fitzgerald, Sandy Denny, Maddy Prior, Linda Thompson to name but a few....
Rega RP3/Elys 2, Roksan K2 CDS, Squeezebox Touch, Denon PMA720AE, Q Acoustics 2020i, Sennhesier HD595, Beyer-Dynamic DT770PRO, Chord Crimson/Chord Rumour 2
Fair play - in terms of British Soul or R&B singers she has few rivals IMO.
One of the greatest songs ever.
