Where Am I Going / The Look Of Love Album Tracklist

Where Am I Going? is the third studio album by singer Dusty Springfield, released on Philips Records in the UK in 1967. By now, firmly established as one of the most popular singers in Britain, with several hits in America as well, Springfield ventured into more varying styles than before, and recorded a wide variety of material for this album. Rather than the straightforward pop of A Girl Called Dusty or the mix of pop and soul of Ev'rything's Coming Up Dusty, Springfield recorded a variety of styles from jazz to soul, to pop and even show tunes (the standout title track, from the musical Sweet Charity). While not the success that her previous two albums were, Where Am I Going? was praised by fans and critics alike for showing a mature and sophisticated sensibility, despite the many different styles of music.

In the United States, the album was released in a quite altered form as The Look of Love, titled after a successful Springfield recording originally only released as a single B-side in Britain. Also included were two other singles — "Give Me Time", a U.K. and U.S. hit, and "What's It Gonna Be", a U.S. hit — not included on Where Am I Going?. The Look of Love also contained the UK single B-side "Small Town Girl", not on Where Am I Going?.

Where Am I Going? was released to CD for the first time in the early 1990s. A digitally remastered edition was released in 1998, and included the bonus tracks "I've Got a Good Thing", "Don't Forget About Me" (a later version appeared on Dusty in Memphis), and "Time After Time".

"Where Am I Going?" was sampled in the song "Zenophile", from the 2004 album Destroy Rock & Roll, by Scottish electronic music artist Mylo. "I Can't Wait Until I See My Baby's Face" was sampled in the song "Nothing Can Stop Us" from the 1991 album Foxbase Alpha by Saint Etienne. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
