Out of print in the U.S.! Import reissue of Dusty's 1968 album including four bonus tracks, 'No Stranger Am I' (Remix), 'Meditation' (Remix), 'The Color of Your Eyes' (Remix) and 'Spooky'. Recorded just prior to her now-classic Dusty in Memphis, this album features a strong mix of Rock, Soul and Easy Listening tracks including a cover of French singer/songwriter Charles Aznavour's 'Who (Will Take My Place)', Randy Newman's 'I Think It's Going to Rain Today' and her version of 'Piece of My Heart', later a hit for Janis Joplin. Universal.

Side 2 opener This Girl's In Love With You has been interpreted by many artists, but Dusty's peerless vocal delivery wrings the best from this track. The other highlight of this side is I Think It's Gonna Rain Today, as fine an interpretation of Randy Newman song as you'll hear. The side includes show tune I Only Wanna Laugh, which sits comfortably in the running order despite the change of style, and Charles Asnavour's Who (Will Take My Place?) Which could have graced many a 1960's film title sequence.
For this reissue there are four worthy bonus tracks, either b-sides or outtakes from the sessions. Chief amongst these is the sublime Spooky, which defies belief that it could be thrown away as a b-side.
This is a lovely album. Soon Dusty would hit her peak with Dusty In Memphis but this album surely runs that masterwork a close second.
The seqencing is way off as there is no such thing as a up side and a chill side. So the levels and mood vary quite a bit
making it a difficult listen, perhaps it was the reason it was not too popular at the time.
I can't wait to play this back to back with Dusty In Memphis. I also bought the Complete A and B Sides cd so I am now converted.
