I had no idea. But I came very close to posting some earlier. Spooky, as Ms Springfield might say. Bless you for this x

Word verif = 'caring' (!)

Thanks for the track and the heads up. I'll have a Dusty tribute this evening.

I like the idea of a climactic wonderland. Best not listen at work, then...

I love Dusty in Memphis... but the first time I played 'The Look Of Love' will live with me for ever. This is THE post coital vocal performance. Beautiful. Happy Birthday Dusty... you bin gone too long!

They were just playing "going back" on the radio by that Carol King, what with the sun shining and that it was quite wonderful.
Cheers.

'The look of love' and 'I can't make it alone' are two of my very favourite songs. What a voice - the greatest voice of all time?

You know the weirdest thing about seeing her funeral on t'telly when it was in the news? The chief undertaker appeared onscreen and he was the same chap who "did" my granny when she died. I think my granny would have been pleased to have been in the same company, not sure what Dusty would've thought about it.
