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.

Absolutely phenomenal pressing. Very present and full. The best sounding vinyl I own. Beautifully presented jacket. You need it!

Comparison time...

2017 EU
2019 EU Half Speed
2020 US 2LP

Put simply the winner of these three is the 2020 cut. It has the clarity nailed but it tempers the inherent sibilance the best and just sounds the most natural and balanced. The 2017 EU is comparitively muddy and sounds like its in another room but still no less sibilant for it which kinda sucks but hey its around £16 if money is an issue. The Abbey road is v.close in 90% respects to the 2020 but just a lil bit more sibilant to the point it can draw my attention away... perhaps its just abit too hifi? It may sound best on a highly rolled off system though i still feel the 2020 would pip it.

I only wish i'd had an AP 45 rpm cut to test as well because in theory that has the recipe for sounding the best... maybe one day!

YMMV as ever.

Fantastic album and this is phenomenal mastering/cut of Bazza (Alchemy) rocks! Clean pressing too.
If only all reissues sounds so well...

U.K. promotional copies exist, printed black text on white background with big red 1/2 overlayed on each side.. ''not for sale'' is also noted-- similar layout to all the 7'' 'demo's from that time.. but i didnt realise they did this for lp's aswell.

Sounds absolutely fantastic! Would love to know how it sounds against the Acoustic Sounds pressing but I can’t imagine Acoustic Sounds sounding much better. Run Out Groove is fast becoming one of the best labels out there at reasonable pricing!!!
