All of the songs in this 2 cd set were recorded in the three year period 1964 to 1967, before Sandie was 20 1/2. That's pretty impressive considering all of the artists who only lasted long enough to record a record or two. Presented in chronological order, Sandie's youth is apparent in her earlier recordings where she sounds like a 17 year old. Of course some of that could be due to inferior recording conditions. For instance, "Always Something There to Remind Me", which she recorded at age 17 1/2, sounds much better than her other earlier recordings. Sandie followed "Always...." with another well produced hit, "Girl Don't Come", which made it to # 3 on the British charts. In 1966 Sandie recorded what I consider three of her strongest records: "Tomorrow", "Nothing Comes Easy", and the double-sided hits "Run" and "Long Walk Home". All four are personal favorites. 1967 was, of course, the year Sandie wowed the Eurovision audience with "Puppet on a String" (and maybe with her minidress as well!).
She may be lesser known that Petula Clark and Dusty Springfield, but this set shows you that she was just as talented. Taken in its entirety the beauty of this collection is that it displays how Sandie matured into a very entertaining singer during her stay at Pye records. A great collection for both Sandie Shaw fans and those who are just meeting her for the first time. Highly recommended!
This double CD collect her 1964-67 recordings and though hits have period charm ("There's Always Something To Remind Me", "Girl Don't Come","Long Live Love") bad covers and misses are far more overwhelming - whoever told her to cover Nancy Wilson's "How Glad I Am" or Irving Berlin's "Always" was just cruel.
Shaw had thin,whining voice that's way too much for double CD listening - she wouldn't pass any of today's TV talent shows,for sure - and she often goes out of tune but apparently audience at the time didn't mind as they lifted her up to iconic status.
Hits are fine,but boy,when she misses,she really misses.
If you want to hear good 1960s singer,go for Dusty,Cilla,Lulu or even (hate to say this) Petula or wonderful Julie Grant,but Sandie Shaw couldn't sing to save her life.
She is the best, I haven't heard anything she recorded, in any language that isn't at least worthwhile listening, much, probably most, is absolutely fantastic.
