The Original Album Plus Singles - A & B Sides!
In 1960, Mary OBrien (a member of the all girl group The Lana Sisters) and her brother Dion (a member of the duo The Kensington Squares with Tim Field), changed their names to Dusty and Tom Springfield respectively, and retained Field for the launch of their new pop folk trio The Springfields. Comparable to Peter Paul & Mary, The Springfields recorded their British debut album, Kinda Folksy, in 1961 and achieved their chart breakthrough later that year. Although chief songwriter and producer Tom Springfield was perceived as the leader of the group, it's Dusty's vocal talents that certainly shine through here. Vinyl Passion augments the original 12-track album with another dozen A and B side singles.
