That was a great read and a great story, thanks guys !
To think if she hadn't left The Wonderettes we would never have had the two sided Big Wheel gem 😮

TaStiK tale. Thanks a bunch. Beginning with a Doctor's orders to unveil that very angel's voice face and slice of life into music... A long-long time personal favorite record 'I'm tempted' that I can now "visualize" otherwise. Especially love that early black and white picture of a young 'witty' Barbara AKA Sandy.

Thanks for that great article.  I always wondered what Sandy's story was, and didn't know she had been a member of The Wonderettes.

Asked the question with regard to September Jones many times too Andy, always drawn a blank. 

Sadly we might never know as each year that goes by we lose more and more of our musical hero's either too illness or that living death dementia.

But in this case Sandy a.k.a Barbara Weems is over the moon with the response to her life story on this and other social media sites half a century after she cut her solitary 45.

Many thanks for all your replies

Dave.

Hi Andy, my 2 cents; have you try to see with Gilles Petard from Paris who released the fantastic double 45 of September Jones in 2006 ?

I remember the EP but never any biography.

Interesting article. In reading this thread, I can't seem to locate the question that you want to ask Giles Petard.

If you post the exact question, I will get it to him.

BTW, has anyone ever tracked down who has the Big Wheel masters?
