5.0 out of 5 stars Fourth in the series of Sandie reissues, 25 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Sandie Shaw Supplement (Audio CD)
Following Sandie, Me and Love Me, Please Love Me, this CD continues in similar vein, beginning with all the tracks from one album and continuing with other tracks recorded at around the same time, mostly the A and B sides of singles not featured on the album.

In the booklet notes, Sandie claims that Right to cry (a Goffin-King song) was supposed to be released as a single but wasn't, and it is clear that she is annoyed about that. It's a great song, but maybe the powers that be decided that it wasn't strong enough to be the A-side of a single, so it end up on the album, along with some other original songs as well as covers of songs associated with such diverse artists as Simon and Garfunkel, the Rolling Stones and Shirley Bassey.

The remaining tracks include her hit Monsieur Dupont and her cover of Those were the days, which became a hit for Sandie in some European countries. As Sandie correctly points out, this song began life as a Russian folk song, although the first Western act to have pop success with it was the American folk group the Limeliters.

This reissue shows that Sandie was quite a versatile performer, but she was to stretch that versatility with her next album that, again with bonus tracks, is titled Reviewing The Situation.
