A Girl Named Dusty

(from the liner notes to Golden Hits, 1966):

"...She is an original. She...isn't like anybody else. Interview her, and you find out important things like she thinks her nose is too long, and find that her favorite actor is Daffy Duck... Her appearance is...different for a girl singer. Neither beat nor mod. No vinyl-skirted refugee from a mind-blown nightmare. Simply dressed, but chic... Her sound is...unique. No pinings after Ella or Barbra or Alma or any of the other champs. Pure golden Dusty."

  1. I so love Dusty! I remember her being interviewed by Jennifer Saunders. Jennifer asked Dusty what her favorite color is.

    Dusty thought a moment and answered, "Vodka."
