Sandi Everett of Whirlwind

You know how they say everything happens for a reason?

In 1974 Sandi Everett met Ron Foster of Ecstasy Passion & Pain and encouraged him to see her group, Whirlwind, perform. He did, he was impressed, introduced them to Roulette Records and the rest, as they say, is history.

Whirlwind released two 45s on Roulette, one of which has been re-worked by Ron Foster and released on UK label Izipho Soul

Here Ady chats with Sandi, now a successful business consultant, about those heady days in 1970s New York City, and her joy at re-releasing one of Whirlwind’s favourite songs.
