"The Golden Hits of Sandie Shaw" is a compilation album by 1960s British girl singer Sandie Shaw. Released in April 1966 by Pye Records on their budget Golden Guinea label, it contains all of the "A" sides and "B" sides of all her UK chart singles from 1964 to the end of 1965, which was technically all of her singles apart from her very first which had failed to make an impression on the chart. The "Golden Hits" compilation did not enter the album chart, but it has always been a rarity that budget-priced albums make a strong impression. This album has never been released on CD.

Of the twelve songs featured on "The Golden Hits of Sandie Shaw", eleven are written by Chris Andrews who was hired as Shaw's songwriter on her signing to Pye Records in 1964. The only song not written by him is the opener of side one - Shaw's breakthrough single "(There's) Always Something There to Remind Me," which is by legendary American songwriting duo Burt Bacharach and Hal David. The song had originally been a minor hit in the U.S. for Lou Johnston and was discovered by Shaw's manager, Eve Taylor, on a song-hunting trip to America. Shaw's version of the song was her breakthrough single, staying at Number One on the UK singles chart for three weeks in the Autumn of 1964.

Shaw's other Number One single by this point, "Long Live Love" is the 2nd track on "The Golden Hits" and is followed by the "B" sides to "Always Something There To Remind Me" and "Long Live Love" - a ballad entitled "Don't You Know" and the slightly more upbeat "I've Heard About Him." Next comes the ballad "I'd Be Far Better Off Without You," originally the "A" side follow-up to "Always Something There To Remind Me" but switched to the "B" side shortly after the record's release in favour of the original "B" side "Girl Don't Come." Side one of "The Golden Hits" ends with Shaw's third Top 5 hit "I'll Stop at Nothing."

Side two beings with the upbeat "How Can You Tell" - her first single since her breakthrough not to make the Top 10 (it peaked at Number 21). Next comes "You Can't Blame Him" - the "B" side to "I'll Stop at Nothing" and then "Don't You Count On It," the "B" side to "Message Understood," Shaw's fifth Top 10 which is the next song on "The Golden Hits". The final ballad on the album is "If Ever You Need Me," which was the "B" side to "How Can You Tell" and the album ends with "Girl Don't Come," her second Top 3 hit.
