Dusty springfield reputation lp album 1990

Reputation and Rarities is the name of a repackaged/re-released version of British singer Dusty Springfield's 1990 studio album, Reputation.


In late 1987, there was a resurgence of interest in Springfield's career, which was a direct result of her work with Pet Shop Boys on the duet "What Have I Done to Deserve This?", released in November of the same year. The single reached #2 in the US Billboard Hot 100 and #2 in the UK Singles Chart, Springfield's highest simultaneous charting single ever. Springfield then worked with Pet Shop Boys on two further solo singles "Nothing Has Been Proved", originally from movie Scandal, and "In Private", both UK Top 20 hits for Springfield in 1989. The culmination of Springfield's new success was the album Reputation, released in 1990. The original album was released only in the UK and reached #18 in the UK Albums Chart, Springfield's first hit album in her native country in over twenty years. In 1997, the album was re-released (this time in America as well) as Reputation and Rarities, and included the entire Reputation album, along with two tracks recorded for the album, but never used or released until then, the ballads "Any Other Fool", written by Diane Warren and Robbie Buchanan, and "When Love Turns to Blue", a collaboration with British pop duo Climie Fisher. Also included was "Getting It Right", written and produced by Steve Tyrell in early 1989 for the British movie of the same name, first released as one of the B-sides to the single "Reputation", and the original 12" mix of the biggest hit from the album, "In Private".

Reputation and Rarities was subsequently given a second re-release by EMI's European mid-price label Disky Communications, then repackaged with a third set of cover art.
