Dusty in Deptford

An article by Lois Wilson in this month's Mojo magazine (April 2011) reveals that Dusty Springfield used to spend time on Saturday's searching through the soul records at Dave Godin's Soul City record shop in Deptford High Street.

As reported at Transpontine previously, the shop at 21 Deptford High Street was the first specialist soul shop in Europe when it opened in 1966, and remained there for a year before moving to Covent Garden. This would have been at the height of Dusty's career - she was the best selling female singer in the world in 1966.
