4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Re-Issue - Shaw Fine!, 11 April 2013

This is a vey good re-issue of Sandie Shaw's debut album in digi-pak form (58.27mins). It has excellent sound quality (remastered), and comes with a 16 page colour booklet that has some lovely images of Sandie and good liner notes. The first 12 tracks are the original album as released in 1965 and it's a mix of standards/cover versions (which are ok - the best being 'It's in his kiss') and 3 Chris Andrews originals - 2 of which are the highlights of the album. 'Stop feeling sorry for yourself' is fantastic and 'Gotta see my baby every day' which is also very good, but overall it's not a classic (5/10). The bonus tracks are great, they're the first 5 A & B sides (1964 - 65) which are all either very good or outstanding (3 of which are in mono - nice to get 'Long live love' in mono as I only have it in stereo on the 2004 Sandie Shaw Box Set). This is a great little value for money re-issue. 8/10.

Also check out the other Sandie Shaw albums released on Salvo records 'Me' (1965) & 'Love me, please love me' (1967).

5.0 out of 5 stars The start of a great career, 11 April 2014

Sandie Shaw emerged, seemingly from nowhere, to hit the top of the British charts with her second single, Always something there to remind me, which was a cover of an American song.

This compilation contains both sides of Sandie's first five singles (tracks 13 to 22 here), following her first album (tracks 1 to 121 here) that avoided any of the A or B sides used on the singles. We must remember that in those days, singles were usually the big sellers and albums were mostly regarded as a luxury.

Apart from Always something there to remind me, the singles from this period include Girl don't come and Long live love (the latter title was eventually also used for a completely different song recorded by Olivia Newton John for Eurovision 1974), but the album tracks are particularly interesting. They includes four original songs by Chris Andrews (Sandie's regular songwriter, who had a hit of his own with a song that Sandie rejected and didn't record, Yesterday man) and eight covers - well, not exactly covers but re-interpretations in some cases. If you are accustomed to Doris Day's version of Everybody loves a lover, Sandie's version will come as a shock. It was a shock to me the first time I heard it a few years ago, but while I'll always prefer the original, I enjoy Sandie's version too. Sandie's other covers are not as dramatically different as that one, but you certainly won't mistake them for the originals.

This is the first of a series of five re-issues covering all of Sandie's original sixties music, and there's a further compilation featuring the hits and selected other tracks. I bought all six and they provide excellent reminders of Sandie's musical legacy.

4.0 out of 5 stars WORTH IT FOR LEMON TREE, 11 May 2013

This review is from: Sandie (Audio CD)
This cd is worth the price to hear Sandie sing Lemon Tree.

Sandie had more than one voice, sometimes she sounded rather cattish but on Lemon Tree and several other songs that were to come later she proved she had a really good voice for ballads.

Great to see her music re-released again. Sandie was a great part of 60's pop but there was much more to her with the albums that came afterwards.
