Dusty Springfield

On the heels of her landmark IN MEMPHIS album, Dusty Springfield made a pilgrimage to another U.S. soul capital, Philadelphia, for 1970's A BRAND NEW ME. Once again the British vocalist was ahead of the curve, working with producer-songwriters Kenneth Gamble and Leon Huff and arranger Thom Bell a couple years before their credits would become ubiquitous on R&B hits. Consequently, the Atlantic collection has a little more urbane funk than the Southern grit of its predecessor, but Springfield proves just as well-suited to the sleeker style on such singles as “Silly, Silly Fool,” “I Wanna Be a Free Girl” and the titular Top 40 hit. Dusty Springfield was born on this day in 1939, and we'll celebrate the birthday with one of her best albums, A BRAND NEW ME.
