The Early Years - Featuring The Lana Sisters and The Springfields
Long before she reigned as Britain's 'Queen of Soul', Dusty Springfield (1939-1999) learned the ropes initially as a member of The Lana Sisters, and then more famously in The Springfields, alongside her Brother, Tom. This unique compilation includes everything that Dusty recorded between 1958 and 1962, with both groups.
Disc 1, tracks 1-14 features everything recorded by The Lana Sisters and all the other tracks feature The Springfields. The latter enjoyed significant international success, including a couple of million-selling singles, 'Silver Threads and Golden Needles' (which made the US Top 20) and 'Island of Dreams' (UK Top 5), both of which appear on this set.
Includes The Springfields' two LPs, Kinda Folksy and Folk Songs from the Hills, plus contemporaneous singles and many collectors' rarities, most notably a handful of rare German and French language recordings, which are virtually impossible to find elsewhere on CD.
Also features the unfeasibly rare Springfields 4-track Christmas EP, Which was only ever available as a mail order item via Woman's Own magazine.
