Unquestionably Britain’s greatest female vocalist, Dusty Springfield made some of the finest recordings of the sixties. Dusty Springfield: Once Upon A Time 1964 – 1969 features 20 complete songs filmed from 1964 to 1969 and has all of her greatest hits and more. Included on the DVD are her early classics “I Only Want To Be With You”, “Wishin’ And Hopin’” and “I Just Don’t Know What To Do With My Self” as well as timeless hits “Son Of A Preacher Man”, “The Look Of Love” and “You Don’t Have To Say You Love Me.” In between the performances, Dusty’s story is told through new interviews with Burt Bacharach, singer Madeline Bell (who sang back-up for Dusty in the ‘60s) and Simon Bell (who sang back-up for Dusty from the ‘70s through the ‘90s) filmed exclusively for the DVD as well as Dusty herself via a newly discovered, previously unseen biographical interview from 1978. The bonus features include Dusty’s complete 1965 and 1966 New Musical Express Poll Winners Concert appearances as well as a duet with Burt Bacharach on “A House Is Not A Home.” This DVD is one of the first four releases in the British Invasion series and is also sold as part of the British Invasion Boxset along with Gerry & The Pacemakers, Small Faces and Herman’s Hermits DVDs.
