Indisputably Dusty

I remember finally getting (one of those albums critics invariably declared a "must have") Dusty Springfield's stunning "Dusty in Memphis" a little while after Rhino put out its deluxe edition in 1999. Naturally, I went out and bought a few earlier cds of hers. But it wasn't until I got the vastly underrated "A Brand New Me", her 1970 album recorded with the legendary Philly soul producers Leon Huff and Kenny Gamble that I went on a wave of semi-obsessive Dusty song collecting. If none of her other albums can compare to Dusty in Memphis or A Brand New Me, there are still a lot of gems (I mean, the woman can sing!!) from her various releases from the 60s and 70s. G'ahead, check 'em out if you don't believe me. :)

I recently ran across your site and have started tasting your compilations. I'd be remiss if I didn't thank you for this Dusty Springfield collection. A quite enjoyable 1 hr 42 mins. I appreciate your efforts.

Ish,When you get the time could you re-up the links for Indisputably Dusty Vol 1 & Vol 2.Seems Mediafire is blocking most file sharing now.
