Lulu - Oh Me Oh My - The Singles 1964-75



Here's a comp I put together that finally tells Lulu's story in a satisfying way. Over the eleven years covered here, she was on something like five labels, making a complete career retrospective problematic. Often when I'm putting these together, I really don't know if it'll really work until it's done. This comp really did the trick (for me, at least): it shows her range and puts everything she did in context, without dragging. Please check it out - I think you'll reassess Lulu as I did. All @ 320 and runs a bit over three hours. Let me know what you think!

Amazing, amazing, amazing. If you ever needed to hear some music to lift your spirits and believe that one believes in what one is singing, this is the deal. Thank you so much for your time and effort. This is a set to keep handy for repeated listens.

I know exactly one of her records - yes, the one everybody knows - and she is really an unknown quantity to me. This will be interesting.

absolute fantastic!! I'm glad you come back again after all those years!! I remember that Lulu recorded Boom Bang a Bang in different languages (Spanish, italian, french, german)

lcdr said...

Really a great collection! Thanks. The only single I was not able to trace on her discography is the one that would be formed by Don't Let Me Down/Feelin' Alright. I really have no clue and as I have split your fantastic collection into the original singles folders and added the covers for good measure, I am remaining with those two tracks spare. Can you give me some indications please?
Thanks in advance.

Antonio
