So Glad You're Mine

Sharon Tandy

From her album "Sharon Loves You Know Who?" released in 1962 on Gallotone Records in South Africa.
I was born Sharon Finkelstein in Johannesburg in 1943. I came from an eccentric family. I was totally unspoiled. But I was a very naughty and rebellious child, because of my upbrigning.  My first love was Elvis I remember going to see Jailhouse Rock thirteen times, I used to pull my hair out and get really excited. It did seem like we were detached from the rest of the world, so we grabbed what we could. I also loved Little Richard and do to this day. [from the Big Beat CD booklet, notes edited]
Sharon cut a dozen singles between 1962-1964 - all for the Continental and Gallo labels, before moving to England in 1964 at the suggestion of Frank Fenter, head of Atlantic Records in UK, whom she later married.
