Offered for sale is an original U.S. stereo pressing of the 1967 LP To Sir With Love by Lulu, complete with a rare hype sticker on the shrink wrap.
About this copy: This copy is an original 1967 U.S. stereo issue. The cover is VG++; there is a bit of wear on the two right-hand corners and a bit of writing on the back cover.
The shrink wrap is still attached to the cover, though it has several large tears. The rare hype sticker promoting the single “Morning Dew” is still attached. There’s a bit of scribbling in ball point pen on the sticker.
The disc is M- and appears to have had little, if any play.
A nice copy of a pretty good LP.
Background: To Sir With Love (titled Love Loves to Love Lulu in the UK) was the second LP by the pop singer. The title track reached #1 on the U.S. charts, and the follow-up, “Morning Dew,” reached #52. The album peaked at #24 on the U.S. charts.
Interesting footnote – John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin played on this LP.
The best songs from Lulu’s only Top 40 American LP (“To Sir with Love,” “The Boat That I Row,” “Best of Both Worlds,” “Morning Dew”) are on the Rhino compilation. If you like her a lot, though, it’s not a bad pickup if you find a cheap used copy. This is Lulu at her poppiest, with production by Mickie Most and arrangements by Peter Knight (who worked on The Moody Blues’ Days of Future Passed) and John Paul Jones (yes, the John Paul Jones from Led Zeppelin).
