Dusty Springfield - I Close My Eyes and Count To Ten. Dusty beginning to drift off that iconic 60s look (platinum bouffant and panda eyeshadow) by this performance, where she's gone for 'Georgian redhead'. In this week she'd climbed to no6. The next month Dusty went Stateside to record "Dusty in Memphis".
And one place higher climbs this rare vocal outing by Herb Alpert - coincedentally covered by Dusty Springfield on her next album - This Guy's In Love With You. The track is on the album "The Beat of the Brass".
Alpert was the A in A&M records.
