AllMusic Review by

Weighing in at three discs, Anthology sets out to be the definitive Dusty Springfield compilation and it damn near achieves its goal. While the size of this set makes it a little impractical for fans who just want the hits, anyone who wants to dig deeper into her career will discover that she was one of the most consistent interpretive singers of the '60s, capable of sweet girl group pop, lush orchestral pop, and blue-eyed soul. Bypassing her early records with the Springfields and starting with her solo career in 1963, Anthology hits all the high points and features a number of fine, forgotten gems as well, making it essential for serious fans of Dusty, '60s pop, and blue-eyed soul.
