Dusty in Memphis has frequently been named one of the greatest albums of all-time; according to Acclaimed Music, it is the 104th most ranked record on critics' all-time lists.  NME named it the 54th greatest album ever in their 1993 list,  and in 2003, Rolling Stone ranked the record 89th on its list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. Richie Unterberger wrote in AllMusic that the album's reputation has improved significantly over time and felt it was "deserving of its classic status". Tony Scherman from Entertainment Weekly said Dusty in Memphis was a "pure gem", Springfield's greatest work, and perhaps one of the greatest pop records ever recorded,  Q took note of its balance between "R&B and sensitive pop dramas",  while Spin critic Chuck Eddy viewed it as one of the all-important blue-eyed soul records.  In The A.V. ClubKeith Phipps wrote that Springfield and her team of musicians and producers for Dusty in Memphis developed an elegant and distinct fusion of pop and R&B that predated the Philadelphia soul sound of the 1970s.  According to Eric Klinger from PopMatters, its sophisticated style of music influenced the sound of 1990s trip hop artists who sampled songs from the album and became a blueprint for British female singers of the 2000s, including AdeleRumer, and Duffy.

Nixon Resigns Day of CSNY Concert

 
 
The NEW YORK TIMESNIXON RESIGNS
 
 
 
 
DAVID CROSBY recalls CONCERT 
 
at ROOSEVELT STADIUM Jersey City, NJ
 
The DAY NIXON RESIGNED
 
 
Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young fans have waited 40 years for a live album from the band's legendary 1974 tour -- and their patience is about to pay off in spades. Coming on July 8th is CSNY 1974, a three-CD, one-DVD set due which chronicles the band’s most extensive tour to that point and despite being halfway through the 1970’s, to many, capped the end of the ‘60s.
David Crosby recalled the infamous tour, which saw the band performing both group and solo sets within a massive show that often broke the three-hour mark, telling The Wall Street Journal, "Our relationships got better and worse at the same time. After that tour, I realized that cocaine has a terrible effect on everything and that all drugs are not the same. If we had just been smoking pot, we probably would have been the same old band. All of us have done better work since the tour. Individually, we didn't peak then -- but the band did."
Two major moments happened to the band during the ’74 trek; "Mama" Cass Elliott, the woman who introduced Graham Nash to David Crosby and Stephen Stills died, and Richard Nixon resigned the presidency in disgrace following the Watergate scandal. Crosby recalled the resignation and the show that followed: "The most memorable moment for me was the August 8th concert at Roosevelt Stadium in Jersey City, New Jersey. While we were on, President Nixon went on TV and said he was resigning the next day. When we heard backstage, we went bonkers. Graham announced it to the audience and the place went completely up for grabs. It was a moment of complete and utter joy, that a dark cloud was finally lifting and everyone there had somehow been a part of it. We immediately performed my ‘Long Time Gone.’”

The DAY NIXON RESIGNED
 
Jersey City, New Jersey
 
Concert was on august 8, 1974
 
Graham Nash announced to the audience that
Nixon was resigning ...
 
Me, my friend and a crowd of thousands erupted.
 
NIXON announced on this day he was resigning, the
actual resignation took place the next day August 9th  ...
 
I was at that Historical Concert with my High School Friend Craig Coleman
 
We also went to the Top of The EMPIRE STATE BUILDING that day ...
 
To get to Roosevelt Stadium in Jersey City from Carlstadt New Jersey we had to
first take a Bus to the Port Authority Bus Station in New York in order to catch a
bus to the stadium, so we decided to go to the top of the EMPIRE STATE BUILDING first.
 
It was quite a day for two Teenagers from New Jersey, "to say the least!"
