Dusty Springfield – The Artist
Mary Isobel Catherine Bernadette O’Brien OBE (1939 – 1999), better known by her stage name Dusty Springfield, was an English singer. With her distinctive mezzo-soprano sound, she was a popular singer of blue-eyed soul, pop and dramatic ballads, with French chanson, country, and also jazz in her repertoire. During her 1960s peak, she ranked among the most successful British female performers on both sides of the Atlantic. Her image – marked by a peroxide blonde bouffant/beehive hairstyle, heavy makeup (thick black eyeliner and eye shadow) and evening gowns, as well as stylised, gestural performances – made her an icon of the Swinging Sixties.
Son of a Preacher Man – The Song
‘Son of a Preacher Man‘ is a song written and composed by American songwriters John Hurley and Ronnie Wilkins and recorded by British singer Dusty Springfield in September 1968 for the album Dusty in Memphis. Springfield’s version was produced by Jerry Wexler, Tom Dowd, and Arif Mardin for her first album for the Atlantic Records label. The single, released in late 1968 and credited as “Son-of-a Preacher Man” on UK, US and other releases, became an international hit. In 1994, the song was featured in a scene of the film Pulp Fiction. “Son of a Preacher Man” helped to sell more than two million units of the film’s soundtrack and to help it reach number six on the charts, according to SoundScan. Quentin Tarantino has been quoted, on the “Collectors Edition” DVD of Pulp Fiction, as saying that he probably would not have filmed the scene in which the song is featured had he not been able to use it.
The Vicar- The Shape
This record has been modelled into a vicar wearing a clerical collar. The heart shape and its meaning has evolved over hundreds of years. Nowadays it means love but before the 13th and 14th centuries it was generally drawn for decorative purposes. People at that time thought of our hearts as books of memory and believed feelings for the beloved were somehow written on your heart.
