Dusty Springfield is considered by many to be one of the greatest blue-eyed soul artists in American history. During her commercial peak she experienced major transatlantic success that most british artists could only dream of. She also was a consistent hitmaker in the 1960s, second to Petula Clark as the most successful female artist of the British Invasion. From "I Only Wanna Be With You", to "You Don't Have to Say You Love Me", "What Have I Done to Deserve This", and of course "Son of a Preacher Man" she's left behind a musical legacy, few could attain. So LSA, what do you think of Dusty Springfield?

I used to listen to her music a lot and I still think she was a great artist. Dusty’s voice could be considered more of an acquired taste to some, and I accept that people don’t take kindly to white people singing black music. Although, I’ve read that she played a part in getting Motown acts over to the UK to perform in the sixties. I like that she insisted on going to Memphis to record with their session musicians when she could’ve made that album in London or L.A. or wherever else. That move had integrity behind it. Unfortunately, her legacy could do with some help, since I have not heard her mentioned as an influence on any current artists since that girl Duffy.

Also, according to this 1964 interview she hated (masculine) men (it makes sense given that she came out later in life). Iconic.
