Does this exist?

Postby Bassman » Sat Feb 20, 2010 12:18 pm

All

I am convinced that a couple of years ago Brian Matthews on his Radio Two Sounds Of The 60's show played a version of Dusty Springfield singing The Pretenders hit I Go To Sleep.

I know that it is a Ray Davies song written as a lullabye for his daughter in the 1960's but I cannot find any evidence of a recording by Dusty. I just remember it was a fantastic version and would love to lay my hands on a copy.

I have spent time searching the Internet but any combination of I Go To Sleep Ray Davies and Dusty Springfield always leads me up a dead end.

Does anybody know this version and where I can get a copy?

Much appreciated

Tel

Hi Tel,

Although many artists have covered this wonderful track, I can't find any mention of a recording by Dusty.

Unfortunately Brian's online track-listing doesn't go back far enough, but I've e-mailed the show to see if they can throw any light on this one.

Thanks. I agree it is a great song and I love The Pretenders version - there's something about Chrissie Hynde's voice that just strikes a chord with me.

I remember this just stopped me in my tracks but I was doing something else so I couldn't get details.I just remember it being a fantastic version and raving about it afterwards. Mind you most Dusty tracks are pretty fantastic!

E-mailing SOTS was my next recourse but lets see if you get a response.

I just hope it wasn't a dream.

Hi Tel,

Just FYI UKCHARTS isn't me... we're two people and haven't even met for a beer. A couple of oceans are in the way !

I can't find 'I Go To Sleep' by Dusty either. I don't know the song and the only version I have is by the Applejacks.

As a single (without checking if it's the right song) there were US releases by
The Pretenders WARNER BROS. 4986 1981
Adrian Pride WARNER BROS. 5867 1966
Peggy Lee CAPITOL 5488 1965

And in the UK,
The Applejacks Decca F 12216 1965
The Truth Pye 7N 17095 1966
Peggy Lee Capitol CL 15413 1965

Cheers - Kirk

Ooops - Sorry.

My aging brain should have worked that out.

Thanks for looking - it must be an album track (if it indeed does exist).
