  • Producers: Tom Shapiro, Walter Afanasieff.
  • Engineers: Brian Tankersley, Dana Jon Chappelle, Jay Healy.
  • For what turned out to be Springfield's musical swansong, her producer sent her to Nashville to work with Nashville players. Yet the final product is an album that has next to no discernable country influence other than the presence (on one song) of Mary Chapin Carpenter on backing vocals. In other words, this is an L.A. pop album through and through.
  • Nevertheless, Springfield's honeyed vocals remain as irresistible as ever. There's a charming duet with Daryl Hall (their voices blend quite nicely) and a sort of autumnal feeling to the session. It's not her all-time best effort, to be sure, but a nice way to go out nonetheless.
Professional Reviews
Mojo (Publisher) (7/95, p.112) - "...the grande dame of white soul returns, mellower but still licensed to chill....Tom Shapiro leaves acres of room for that spicy velvet larynx, particularly on 'Wherever Would I Be', a duet with Daryl Hall capable of tingling the most resilient spine..."

NME (Magazine) (7/22/95, p.50) - 6 (out of 10) - "...beautifully made soul-pop with a couple of country-style moments. Dusty can still sing better than anyone else..."
