Biography

Before Adele and Amy, there was Lulu. Now she’s back. Britain’s first great female rock and soul voice has made the album of her career.
This is no hyperbole. Hearing is believing.
Making Life Rhyme is the first album which Lulu has written for herself, a deep, rich, emotional, autobiographical stew of musical flavours, harking back to the raw groove of her classic 1965 debut ... Read more in Amazon's Lulu Store

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Lulu's early music (recorded on the Decca label) was strongly influenced by R+B but when she moved to Columbia, Mickey Most recorded her as a mainstream pop singer, not always giving her ideal material to record. The low point (for me) is Boom bang a bang, the song that Lulu took to joint victory in the Eurovision song contest of 1969. Not only is this song here in its standard version, its also here in French and Italian versions. Well, it made number two in the UK (where it was her biggest solo hit) and no doubt proved successful in other European countries, so a lot of people love that song.

This compilation includes all of Lulu's hits between 1967 and 1969. This includes an unusual type of international double-sided hit. In America, the A-side was To sir with love, which spent over a month at number one, while the B-side was The boat that I row. In Britain, the A-side was The boat that I row, which made the top ten, while To sir with love (which Mickey Most apparently didn't like) languished on the B-side. Both tracks were brilliant, unlike some of Lulu's other hits with Mickey Most.

Despite the phenomenal success of To sir with love, Lulu's other singles made only limited impact in America, but she had UK top ten hits with Me the peaceful heart and I'm a tiger, UK top twenty hits with Let's pretend and Boy and a minor UK hit with Love loves to love love.

This compilation includes all those hits as well as covers of Day tripper (Beatles), To love somebody, I started a joke (both Bee Gees), Mighty Quinn (written by Bob Dylan but a hit for Manfred Mann), Show me (Joe Tex), Gimmie some loving (Spencer Davis group) and Cry like a baby (Box tops) among others.

In many ways, this is a fine collection though it has some dodgy moments.

Format: Audio CD
This is a very important collection of Lulu's history. She was all the rage on both sides of the Atlantic and justifiably so. Her voice is ballsy and she has soul. Most of the tracks are really wonderful from that 60s era. There are some songs that Mickie Most pushed Lulu to record and they are dodgy ones: "March", "I'm A Tiger", and the painful "Boom Bang A Bang"
which was a Eurovision Winner. It is Lulu's voice that makes so many songs superb such as "Boy", "Sad Memories", "Morning Dew". She has recorded mature songs at a very early age and I hope someone will see it is time to remaster and reissue the complete recordings she did for Atco following her work with Mickie Most. Her two Atco albums, "New Routes" and "Melody Fair" (and the single tracks) are extremely mature and superb albums for a 21 year old performer to have recorded. Lulu is a gifted artist and this collection is a must-have. The best is happening now. Lulu is a current recording artist and songwriter. Nevertheless, her history in the music industry is well worth having. She was a very important artist during the British Invasion. Add this two CD set to your collection. The sound quality is excellent and it is extremely enjoyable.

Some dodgy songs but still fascinating 11 Mar. 2005

In many ways, this is a fine collection though it has some dodgy moments. While this period of Lulu's career was her most commercially successful, it doesn't represent her best music overall. It would be very easy to knock some stars off the rating but with thirty-nine tracks there is enough music here worth hearing to justify the price. Of course, if you actually enjoy the tracks I regard as dodgy, you'll get even greater pleasure from this collection.

HITS, B-SIDES, RARITIES!!!! 14 Nov. 2005
By danstuller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a great start if you have just been introduced to the music of Lulu. Her most famous track (which is in the title) starts the disk off allong with most of her hits recorded from 1967-1969. "This Time" is a great love song written by the same person who wrong "To Sir, With Love" (Donald Black), and was used in the 1968 film "Hot Millions". The song has not been released anywhere else except on this compilation.

Lulu's Eurovision Song Contest entry ("Boom Bang A Bang") also appears on this disc, in almost all the languages she recorded it in (with the exception of Spanish and German). The B-side to "Boom Bang A Bang" which is called "March!" is a campy little number that's just fun to listen to, and sounds like should belong in "Dad's Army" or "M*A*S*H".

Her cover of the Spencer Davis' Group "Gimme Some Lovin'" is also fabulously covered on this compilation, as well as "Best Of Both Worlds" which has also been sung by other 60's crooners, like Scott Walker.

Some of these songs were only released on LP in the late sixties and early seventies, and really shouldnt be missed this time around. This is one of those albums that you can share with the entire family, young or old. Its good music, without any suggestive content or swearing, which is quite uncommon nowadays in mainstream pop.

A LULU OF A COLLECTION 2 Jan. 2008
By A. Meyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I received my copy of this Lulu disc today and have enjoyed the familiar songs alongside all the great stuff I never heard before. The sound quality is exceptional and crisp....wow! I recommend this set for Lulu fans and lovers of mod 60's pop music. I also commend EMI for a job well done.

Buried Treasure Unearthed!!! 10 Jan. 2013
By Suzanne Countryman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I consider myself a bit of an expert on 60s pop and rock and there aren't too many artists I have let slip through the cracks of my cd collection over the years.I'm ashamed to admit that Lulu was one such artist and I'm sure glad I bought this collection and remedied the situation.I always found "To Sir With Love" a guilty pleasure when I was younger and I absolutely loved her version of Neil Diamond's "The Boat That I Row"(in fact,it's better than Neil's).But like so many U.S. fans,that's pretty much where it ended for me as far as being familar with Lulu's recorded output.After watching a video of her performing on youtube I decided it was time to give her a closer listen and this collection seemed like a huge value and good way to take a chance on seeing whether I would enjoy more of her music.Here's the verdict.I LOVED IT!!!!How could I have overlooked such a great artist for so long? Lulu has an incredible voice,very soulful and well suited to many types of material.She can really bring it!!!I won't go track by track on this generous compilation but let's just say "Boy","To Love Somebody",Me,The Peaceful Heart"and "Best Of Both Worlds" are among the many highlights.And of course the 2 before mentioned tracks.If you like good music then you'll want to buy this.If you're like me you'll wonder what took you so long!

Mickie Most is the key 24 July 2012
By M. Weisman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
To all fans of this music and of Lulu, I just want to state that while I think Lulu's voice was amazing and her delivery always first rate, any attempt to refer to the material as "dodgy", whatever that means, is just plain silly. First and foremost Lulu WAS a Pop singer, and she went to Mickie Most because she had a couple of early successes and then bombed out. Mickie, with his brilliance for picking the right song, is owed mucho credit here folks. As you go snapping your fingers, tapping your toes and singing along, please give credit where it is due, the one and only Mickie Most. Without Mickie, Lulu's career would likely have stalled out and ended where it was. From 1967 through to 1969 she became a household name BECAUSE of Mickie Most. So, please give the man his props. You are also talking about first rate musicians like John Paul Jones, Big Jim Sullivan, etc.
I love every song on this album, and if you love British Pop from the 1960's you will too!
