If ever there was a look and a voice that epitomised an era they belonged to Sandie Shaw, whose classic cool, ice blue eyes, bobbed raven hair and chiselled cheek bones graced just about every teenager's wall and young women's magazine cover from Boyfriend to Woman's Own and established her as the poster girl of The Swinging Sixties. She was the mod's perfect moll, a girl that every young "face" would have liked clinging to him on the back seat of his Lambretta 125. Sandie became an instant star in the second half of 1964 with a series of well-crafted smash hit singles. On her first LP (also a chart smash), released in February 1965, alongside the Chris Andrews originals, Sandie showed she was confident enough to stamp her own identity on covers of pop standards like It's In His Kiss, Baby I Need Your Loving, Love Letters and Always. We've added ten bonus cuts, including her first two number one singles (There's) Always Something There To Remind Me and Long Live Love. This is how the Sixties sounded in the clubs and on TV and radio, with a few strings attached and cover versions written by the illustrious likes of Irving Berlin, Holland, Dozier and Holland, Jackie DeShannon and, of course, Bacharach and David. All are testimony to Sandie's good taste and precocious talent as a teenager. She was able to do them justice bare-foot or with shoes.

Also check out the other Sandie Shaw albums released on Salvo records 'Me' (1965) & 'Love me, please love me' (1967).
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.
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.
Sandie a little on the cheesy side, now she is consider an icon !
