On 8th November record company EMI will release Nothing Comes Easy, a 4-CD box containing 98 songs of Sandie Shaw. Representing the United Kingdom, she won the Eurovision Song Contest in 1967 with the song Puppet on a string.
Sandie Shaw – Nothing Comes Easy is a 4-CD album boxset and the first containing all of Sandie's singles (A and B sides) and previously unreleased material. The box is accomponied by a 68 page booklet, lavishly illustrated with photographs, memorabilia, a biographical essay and track-by-track comments.
For the occasion of this release, British newspaper The Guardian had an interview with Sandie Shaw, who scored eight top 10 singles, including three number ones, between October 1964 and February 1969. About her winning Eurovision Song Contest entry Puppet on a string she tells that it is a song that she used to loathe but now “doesn't mind” to the extent that she has it as her mobile phone ring tone.
Furthermore Shaw says that she doesn't think about making a comeback. She is too busy, and too fulfilled by her work at the Arts Clinic, the London-based counselling practice she runs for creative people. The entire interview by The Guardian can be read here.
