Sandie Shaw

by Simon


On my hols now, and I’m writing this in the car (hey that’s a nice looking pub).  Music right now is Sandie Shaw, her album from the end of the 60s Reviewing The Situation and Hello Angel from the end of the 80s.  Surprisingly connected, they sound like the same person grown older.  And gorgeous.  Lay Lady Lay on the 1st is lovely, all breathy Gallic smokiness.  But both albums are well worth getting your hands on if you can.  I’ve also got a version of Maybe I’m Amazed here which I think was a b-side from the early 70s.  Its big and stompy and soulful and you need to hear it.
