Shout! - The Complete Decca Recordings ~ Lulu
With the correct material, Lulu is one of our best female vocalists. She has recorded a lot of rubbish, and she is the first to admit that.

This CD contains 16 of Keith's hits, as well as two brand new tracks, 'Romeo's Tune' (which might just have one of the catchiest hooks of any of his songs) and 'Got It Right This Time (The Celebration)', which kick the album that was destined to become a favourite off. Everyone has their own favourite hits, and mine is 'Better Life', a song that I heard by chance and made me a fan.
