Background: Silver Threads & Golden Needles, an album released only in the U.S., was the second of three albums by the Springfields, a group that consisted of Dusty Springfield, her brother Tom, and Mike Hurst.

The album reached #91 on the U.S. album charts. gave Silver Threads & Golden Needles a 3 star review:

Leading off with their sole American hit (the title track), Silver Threads & Golden Needles presented a talented vocal group that was rather too eclectic for its own good. Often it seemed as if they couldn’t make up their mind up whether to be a commercial folk revival group, or a conventional mainstream show biz act with folksy flavorings. Lee Hays’ “Lonesome Traveler,” for instance, is given an over-the-top galloping, orchestrated arrangement more suggestive of show-stopping stage musical climaxes than folk ballads. The nice harmonies, Dusty Springfield’s already-bold vocals, and the accomplished pop production make this approach more attractive than it might sound on paper.
