Notes:
Dusty in Memphis is the fifth studio album by English singer Dusty Springfield. She recorded the album at American Sound Studio in Memphis with a team of musicians and producers that included Jerry Wexler, Arif Mardin, Tom Dowd, conductor Gene Orloff, backing vocalists The Sweet Inspirations, bassist Tommy Cogbill, and guitarist Reggie Young. It featured one of her top-10 UK hits, "Son of a Preacher Man". Although Dusty in Memphis sold poorly when it was first released by Atlantic Records in 1969, the album has since been acclaimed by critics as one of the greatest records of all-time and Springfield's best work.

I was disappointed with this reissue to be honest. After reading the reviews I was expecting to be blown away, sadly this was not the case. The bass is lacking and the mid range is not even there! It also sounds overly compressed. The fact it was mastered at Abbey Road at half speed appears to be more marketing ploy than actually contributing to an improvement on the sound. I don’t really care where something is mastered, if it sounds good it sounds good. For me the definitive version still remains the 2017 EU pressing.

It sounds fucking exceptional. I am very, very impressed. I have an OG Atlantic in decent shape and this is just fuller. Very well done.

New liner notes inside gatefold, no additional inserts are included. Poly-lined paper sleeves. Beautiful glossy jacket!

"Pressed on 2-180g vinyl records and comes in a deluxe old-school tip-on style gatefold jacket with an insert and new liner notes."

Not that's I'm bothered but there's no insert in mine, just new liner notes in the gatefold, and the original liner notes on the back...
There's no need for an insert really....

January 2020 follow-up:
Some of you may have already heard/read that Rhino’s boutique imprint, Run Out Groove, recently announced yet another reissue of DIM. This time it’ll be a 2-LP version, basically the same as Rhino’s 1999 Deluxe edition CD with bonus tracks. Anxious to learn who was mastering and how, I asked Rhino, and they replied with the following. Yep, this time it will be from a high rez file. But, as their archivists claim, the master tape suffers from damage, I’m curious about the the extensive restoration results as alluded to in their response. I’ll likely bite - ROG titles still cost less than an AP 2 x 45 rpm, and the Stoughton tip-on details just sweeten the deal.

“ Hello _______,
To answer your Run Out Groove question:
No, we are not using the Bellman lacquer. We decided to go with our own vinyl re-mastering to address some issues in past versions of this release. We could not use the quarter inch analog reel for this album as there is damage to the quarter inch tape. We used a 24 bit flat master file that was transferred from the analog reel many years ago when the tape was intact and provided our engineers with the highest quality audio to work with and cut lacquers from. We think the results speak for themselves, but a fan needs to actually “hear” the record before making judgements as all of this is subjective.
Here is our mastering engineer, Pete Weiss, explaining his process that he posted on his FB page:

A major highlight of my 2019 was getting the chance to work on one of my absolute favorite records...
Last summer I logged a substantial number of hours at Verdant Studio (property still for sale, fwiw) working on the complete, from-the-ground-up restoration and re-mastering of this 1969 pop masterpiece, one of my top favorite albums of all time. A true labor of love, and I am very proud of how it now sounds.
This historic album has been issued and reissued a number of times over the years, and I obtained copies of each version in order to carefully A-B my work with previous iterations. My goal was to make this the definitive version.
Some things that were addressed: Audible drop outs on the master tape have finally been meticulously corrected. Same for some electrical buzzes that have appeared on all previous versions. The exaggerated low and high end featured on 90's reissues has been changed to an overall EQ curve more true to the original master tape. And Dusty's exquisite vocals now match up sonically with the instrumental backing (in past versions, her voice has been too bright and "ess-y" while the instrumental backing has been comparitively dull-sounding. With some judicious M-S processing, the vocals, instruments, and lush reverb all sit in the same sonic spectrum and, to me, sound "more whole" than previous versions.)
That said ^^^ I was super-careful to use "small brush strokes" -- I really wanted this landmark album to sound "as originally intended" and "not tinkered with."
Lacquers were cut -- IN MEMPHIS -- beautifully by Jeff Powell at Sam Phillips Recording. The test pressings floored me: quiet (ie, low-noise), dynamic, with a clear top end -- Cheers, Jeff!
I feel very lucky to have had the opportunity to work on this, and I hope I did Dusty proud. Thanks Run Out Groove Vinyl, Matt Block for your musical trust!”

I just received this version and listened to it at a fairly high volume on my middle of the road vinyl listening set up. It sounds just fine, I have no complaints. There are no pops, crackles or hisses as others have described here.
