To answer some questions that were raised on earlier threads.

Dusty's tv series for ITV was also wiped as was her one off special from the 70's and her show recorded at Talk Of The Town which should have been kept for posterity as it was the first colour special.

As for the Ready Steady Go programmes, several were released (including the Motown special) on video both here and the States and also on laser disc in the States. However it seems very unlikely that they will ever be released on dvd as Dave Clark owns the rights and he wants too much money for a dvd release.

However, the only show Dusty sang live was the Motown show.

Hi Everyone……

Tonight I spent a very pleasant few hours with a Canadian writer by the name of Jeanette Lynes. A mutual friend (from the Women’s Studies Department at Queen’s University in Kingston) recently put us in contact.

Jeanette is a Dusty fan, and will publish a new book later this year. (The northern fall I believe). The title is “It’s Hard Being Queen: The Dusty Springfield Poems”!!! Exciting, eh?!?!

I haven’t seen the book yet, nor have I read any of the Dusty poems. Some of Jeanette’s work can be found here:

(These are from this new book, but are obviously not directly related to Dusty.)

That’s about all the info. I have at the moment – the publisher wants to do a press release sometime in the future, so I will let everyone know when that comes out. Perhaps we could get a good deal on a bulk shipment of books??!!

I’ll post again as more details surface……………

This update (sort of...) on 2 of the Dusty biopic movies was printed in Sunday's Parade Magazine here in the states...

I have some friends in the biz who tell me the Chenoweth project is dead., perhaps all for the best. Her recent critical flop in "Promises,Promises" on Broadway was not good for her career.

Finally, Kristin Chenoweth admits the Dusty biopic movie project is "dead on the vine."

Frost on Saturday

Network issued a DVD in the UK on 4 October under the above title. It includes performances from David Frost's Saturday night series and Dusty is one of the artists listed on the packaging. The amazon UK site indicates the performances date from 1968 and there is a picture of Dusty on the front. No info as to the song performed. Can anyone guess from the picture?

Here is a link to the amazon entry:

The Complete Dusty Springfield lists two appearances in 1968 by Dusty on Frost on Sunday.

The first, 22 September lists her singing "Sweet Lover No More" and "I Will Come To You."

The second, 8 December lists her singing "I Think Its Gonna Rain Today" and "Son of a Preacher Man."

Is it too much to ask that all four songs are on the DVD???

Well it's a 2 dvd set so it would be wonderful if all songs were included - however as no site lists any songs there is only one sure way to find out!!!!!

Not even the website of Network, the issuing company, gives any details of what is performed.

Unlikely, but I would really like to see a performance of I Will Come To You on the DVD as there are no TV performances of that available. The only performance I can recall seeing of that song is on Dee Time in September 1968. However, what we will probably get is Son Of A Preacher Man, which I did see. Frost was the son of a Methodist minister and after Dusty's performance he said, 'And from this son of a preacher man....'.

It was remiss of me not to check Paul Howes' tome before making the original posting. Will try to do better in future.
