Album Review

British pop star Sandie Shaw had already passed through phases of being a teenage sensation, fashion designer, cabaret singer, and musical writer by the time her influence made it to the ears of the young Manchester band the Smiths in the '80s. Morrissey had championed Shaw's smoky girl group odes to loneliness as much as he borrowed from them, and by the time of 1988's Hello Angel, the two had become good friends and even collaborators. While the album has its ups and downs, the five songs co-penned by Morrissey, including three tunes from the time of the Smiths' first album ("Jeane," "I Don't Owe You Anything," and an especially dark version of "Hand in Glove") are essential for any fan to understand the circle of influence. Shaw is remarkable in her own right, but this particular moment of cross-pollination yields results at times even more delicate and nuanced than the Smiths' originals.

British singer Sandie Shaw had a string of girl group-styled singles in the mid-'60s before she retired in the early '70s. Shaw was discovered by pop singer Adam Faith in 1963, who led her to his manager, Eve Taylor; she released her debut single, "As Long as You're Happy," the following year. It didn't hit the charts, yet her next record, "(There's) Always Something There to Remind Me," hit number one in the U.K.; the single hit number 52 in the U.S., yet Shaw was never as big a star in the States...
