Dusty Springfield's Dusty in Memphis: 33 1/3

Autor Warren Zanes
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 30 oct 2003
Dusty in Memphis, Dusty Springfield's beautiful and bizarre magnum opus, remains as fine a hybrid of pop and rhythm and blues as has ever been made. In this remarkable book, Warren Zanes explores his own love affair with the record. He digs deep into the album's Memphis roots and talks to several of the key characters who were involved in its creation, many of whom were - like Zanes - outsiders drawn to the American South and mesmerized by its hold over the imagination.

Warren Zanes was the lead guitarist of the Del Fuegos,a band praised by, among others, the inventor of rock & roll, Sam Phillips. After the Fuegos self-immolated, Warren entered into an academic career and is now Dr. Zanes. Never mind-he still knows what counts. What counts? Genuine feeling, which this shapely small volume is full of...Warren is a greatly gifted good heart, and I love him. Read his book, listen to his record, and you will too.
Sure, there are informative interviews with producer Jerry Wexler, and of course Zanes parses songs like 'Son of a Preacher Man' and 'Breakfast in Bed.' But it's the twists and turns, the oddly illuminating vagaries in between, that make the book such a compulsive read. Zane's approach is apropos for a record that was something of a masquerade-but was no less authentic or affecting for it.
A heartfelt dive into the world of 60s R&B...dazzling.
Zanes' dry analysis of Dusty Springfield's classic white soul album is coupled with revealing interviews with Jerry Wexler, the man behind the song selection, and Stanley Booth, the album's original liner notes writer.
The inaugural volume, Dusty in Memphis by Warren Zanes, sets the template for the series beautifully.
