Inarguably Britain's greatest blue-eyed soul singer, the whiskey-voiced Dusty Springfield was a long-standing critical favorite whose post-1960s work was sadly neglected during her lifetime. That injustice is partially rectified with this 1979 concert recorded at London's prestigious Royal Albert Hall, deftly capturing all the glitz and glamor of a Springfield stage show with the diva's trademark sartorial style and indelible live renditions of classics like "Son of a Preacher Man," You Don't Have to Say You Love Me," and a medley of other greatest hits.
