In just one extraordinary year Sandie Shaw had gone from being Adam Faith's teenage discovery to being acclaimed as The Barefoot Contessa of The Top Twenty with a string of major hit singles to her name. An established teen icon and growing up fast, Sandie's second LP (indeed, her second LP of 1965) saw her take significant strides in the studio, recording more demanding material and, for the first time, one of her own compositions Till The Night Begins To Die. Also included on this reissue are the non-album singles and their flip sides recorded between September 1965 and November 1966. You can hear Sandie's ability to generate real pathos on tracks like If Ever You Need Me, Run and Think Sometimes About Me, where she demonstrated how well she was able to interpret and live inside a lyric. Record companies moved swiftly in the '60s. For Sandie in retrospect it must have seemed like clinging to a painted pony on a musical carousel that never stopped. She was up and down the charts constantly. When one hit single sunk out of the Top Twenty chart it was considered expedient to have the next one ready and off she would totter for another whirlwind tour of the UK or Europe. It was heavy workload but it resulted in an awful lot of good recordings - in several different languages.

Perhaps surprisingly, Sandie's hits nearly all occurred between 1964 and 1969, and some of those hits were only minor hits. Within the last 12 tracks here, you'll find Message understood, Tomorrow (both top 10 hits), Nothing comes easy (a top 20 hit), three other hits and the B-sides for all six.
The first 12 tracks feature an entire album, originally titled Me, which avoided anything released as the A or B sides of singles. The most famous song here is, of course, When I fall in love. Originally recorded by Jeri Southern, the song became an American top 20 hit for Doris Day, but the song aroused British interest later in the fifties via Nat King Cole's cover version. Sandie re-interprets the song in her own distinctive style, so I'm not surprised that some people dislike it. For me, re-interpretations of familiar songs are always interesting, even when I don't like them. In tis case, I love what Sandie did with the song, but it is likely that I'll always prefer Jeri's original version to any other.
Anybody who is truly a fan of Sandie's music (and not just a fan of her hits) will enjoy this a album. A lot of people, including some who apparently call themselves Sandie Shaw fans, should check those samples before buying.
