Album Review

Capable of bone-shaking soul vocals or a smooth, pop-styled Motown sound, Dusty Springfield turned versatility into a 40-year career in which she showed time and time again that she was among the best song interpreters in pop music. This single-disc compilation hits most of the essential commercial high points of that long career, and includes classic gems like "I Only Want to Be with You," "Anyone Who Had a Heart," "I Just Don't Know What to Do with Myself," "Wishin' and Hopin'," and her later-era masterpiece, "Son of a Preacher Man." While Rhino's three-disc Anthology is still probably the best comprehensive introduction to Springfield on the market, this one boils it all down to a generous single disc of the key high points.
