Surround Yourself With Cilla

1969-surround-yourself-with-cilla

'Surround Yourself With Cilla' is the title of Cilla Black's fourth solo studio album released on May 23, 1969 by Parlophone Records. It was Cilla's first album to only be recorded and released in stereo sound format. The album title was inspired by the catchy lead single "Surround Yourself with Sorrow" which had previously reached #3 on the UK Singles Chart - an Italian language version of this song ("Quando Si Spezza Un Grande Amore") was also recorded for the Latin market.
