DUSTY SPRINGFIELD Rep­u­ta­tion: Ex­panded Deluxe Col­lec­tor's

GT (UK) - - CULTURE -

Re­leased in 1990, this al­bum con­tin­ued the come­back Dusty’s Pet Shop Boys had col­lab­o­ra­tion started three years ear­lier. Ten­nant and Lowe sup­ply four strong songs here, in­clud­ing Day­dream­ing, on which Dusty (sort of) raps. Else­where, Rep­u­ta­tion and Born This Way (yes, she owned that song ti­tle be­fore Gaga) are self-em­pow­ered pop an­thems whose lyrics feel es­pe­cially poignant given Dusty’s thinly-veiled gay­ness. A late-ca­reer tri­umph from one of Bri­tain’s best ever singers.
