Dusty, Dusty, Dusty

by Dick Mac

Dusty Springfield performed a lot of duets on television. Not enough of them, of course, but there are decades worth of them.

I tried to pick just one, but had to publish a collection because I just couldn't pick one.

Dusty and the television camera had a love affair in the 1960s, and I was a beneficiary of it!

Here she sings the Nile Rodgers-penned, Diana Ross hit "Upside Down," with Tom Jones

Here she sings the Motown classic "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" with Englebert Humperdink:

Here she interviews The Beatles:

And here is a montage of duets that makes me feel like I'm on an acid trip, because it's mostly so surreal:

"A House Is Not A Home" with Burt Bacharach:
