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.

Brightest pressing of DIM I have come across. Horns in particular are very clear and crisp in the mix.

This is a nice recording. Side B may need a little clean as it did seem a little more poppy/clicky then A but fine once it had a good wash. Nice and clear sound and really quiet vinyl. No issues that I could hear or any distorted S's. I think a good version to own of a great album. Is there a live version of this? Would love to hear one. And if there is a Mofi or other I would love to hear that too to make a comparison. Technics 1200 MKII, Grado Prestige Red homemade speakers.

To my ears, the 2017 Rhino pressing sounds really good. Well balanced and clear. MUCH better than the 4MWB pressing, and clearer, punchier mix than the 2017 Mercury UK pressing. My copy has very faint surface noise during the dead wax, but you'd only notice if you were really listening for it. I'd recommend this one.

Generally speaking, I find Rhino's reissues to be a "mixed bag." Which, considering they've reissued just about every release in existence can be really frustrating. I own this LP, and I think it sounds pretty good--significantly better than 4 Men with Beards' Dusty Springfield - Dusty In Memphis, which I also own.

I don't necessarily recognize an alternate mix, but albertocaeiro owns several different copies of this LP and gives an extensive (and helpful) explanation of the difference between this reissue and other pressings.

I've learned my lesson. Stay away from 4 Men with Beards. I own this LP as well as Rhino's "Summer of Love" Dusty Springfield - Dusty In Memphis. I have no doubt the Analogue Productions Dusty Springfield - Dusty In Memphis sounds great--I own several AP releases and they're all excellent (although I do not currently own AP's Dusty in Memphis. I would probably recommend AP's pressing for this album. If the price is prohibitive or the 2xLP bothers you, Dusty Springfield - Dusty In Memphis is superior sounding (and looking) to the 4 Men with Beards release.

If the 4 MWB pressing sounds as bad as stated below; I have to wonder what the OG or 45RPM pressing sounds like. I picked the 4 MWB pressing up yesterday and thought it sounded pretty darn good.

Hows the sound on this pressing? I see the 4MWB version is getting trashed. I almost bought that one, but will try this version instead. As Mikeh69 comments - looking forward to a different mix than what I've been hearing all these years. Cheers!

This 2017 UK pressing is sounding great to my ears. Clear, balanced, well-mastered. None of the distortion on Dusty's S's (present on the 4WMB pressing). Recommended.
