Dusty Springfield - The Original Pop Diva

"Dancing in the Street" - one of Motown's signature songs. Written by Marvin Gaye, William "Mickey" Stevenson and Ivy Jo Hunter, it first became popular in 1964 when recorded by Martha and the Vandellas whose version reached No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Dusty Springfield had found her "sound" and began her affinity for soul music. She admired the great American performers like Aretha Franklin and Gladys Knight and was selflessly keen to promote their work.

Just a little something I have been directing for the past few months...get your tickets people this will be a goodie! The singing is top notch!Dusty Springfield - The Original Pop Diva.

Although The Springfields were moderately successful, their style of music limited the wide range of material that Dusty Springfield wanted to sing. Therefore, in 1963, Springfield decided to begin a career as a solo singer.

Her first single, "I Only Want to Be with You", was actually recorded while still a member of The Springfields, and was released one week after their final concert. The song was a success in both Britain and the US and led to the recording of her next album in 1964.
