Oh, those lazy hazy days of the 60s. Cilla doing her thing, Petula Clark giving music life. Swinging London was the place to be. New music was flooding the scene daily. And then there was Dusty Springfield. Educated at a convent school, with a slightly dysfunctional family and being somewhat of a tomboy, music was, perhaps it can be inferred, her release.

Review: Dusty At The Charing Cross Theatre
Now playing at the Charing Cross Theatre is Dusty, a musical concert dedicated to the songs of Dusty Springfield. While it shows some promise and includes impressive technology, it lacks focus and makes it hard for anyone not already familiar with Dusty to become invested in the show.

Review: They Say You Can Tell It's Her From The First Note
Dusty Springfield's voice shaped the British Invasion of the 60's and paved the way for countless singers in the "blue eyed soul" scene. It was that very voice that filled the intimate Charing Cross Theatre on Friday night to an audience of both life long and new fans, filling the ears of the young and old with her silky melodies.
