Dusty Springfield was an English singer who rose to fame with her own style of ‘blue-eyed soul’ – a more ‘strident yet vunerable’ style of singing. She instructed her session musicians to play in the style of her American contemporaries, and often recorded her vocals in unusual locations within recording studios to get the sound she wanted. Many critics mistakenly thought that she was African-American, due to the authentic sounding soul production and quality of her voice.
