Friday Night is Music Night (Dusty Archive Edition)

The Times has a long article on Dusty today with links to photos and other videos:
The legacy of Dusty Springfield - Times Online
Dusty Springfield was originally Mary O’Brien, a chubby, redheaded Catholic girl from West Hampstead. She died just over ten years ago, and would have turned 70 on April 16. Her reputation has only grown since her passing; her influence has never been more apparent....


I think her reputation was just fine when she was alive.

I remember my parents tut-tutting ("it's a shame really..")when she left her husband and band - Dusty and The Springfields - to "go it alone". They wouldn't explain why, but I knew they knew something and they weren't telling some curious kid

Her voice and Karen Carpenter's are similar.
