Sandie Shaw - vocals

Born Sandra Goodrich, Sandie has discovered in her home town of Dagenham by Adam Faith's manager. She became known for performing barefoot. Her first LP released in 1965 captured her at her peak with cover versions including Downtown and It's in His Kiss. There were also a number of original songs written by Chris Andrews (not Yesterday Man Chris Andrews). The album was re-released in 2013 with non-album singles and b-sides including the superb Bacharch & David track There's Always Something There to Remind Me.

Sandie Shaw's career was revived in the mid-80s when she appeared on a compilation by the British Electric Foundation (BEF) and had a hit backed by the Smiths with the Morrissey/Marr track Hand in Glove.
