Ev'rything's Coming Up Dusty is the second studio album by singer Dusty Springfield, released on Philips Records in the UK in 1965 . Springfield's 1964 debut album, A Girl Called Dusty, sold well enough to make her Philips Records' top selling female artist. For this, her second album, Philips presented it in a gatefold sleeve and included extensive liner notes. While including a number of fairly standard "pop" songs, Ev'rything's Coming Up Dusty also saw Springfield venturing more into show tunes like "Who Can I Turn To (When Nobody Needs Me)?" as well as the soul music for which Springfield became so well known for singing. "Doodlin'" and "That's How Heartaches Are Made" were minor hits for Baby Washington, one of Springfield's personal favourite singers. Springfield also included the song "La Bamba", which was a popular concert number for her, though not in step with the general style of the album.

In the '60s, it was fairly common for hit singles to be left off albums, as it was assumed that if someone was buying the album, they already had the singles. After Springfield's song "You Don't Have to Say You Love Me" became a huge hit though, the album was re-titled after the song and released in the USA under that name, though with a slightly different track listing, including "You Don't Have to Say You Love Me", to capitalise on the success of the single, which hit No. 1 in Britain (the only No. 1 of her career there), and No. 4 in the USA.

Ev'rything's Coming Up Dusty was released to CD for the first time in the early 1990s, and in 1998 a re-mastered version which included extra tracks was released.
