‘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.
On September 7, 2009, EMI Records release a special edition of the album exclusively to digital download. This re-issue features all of the album’s original recordings plus five bonus tracks (all have been digitally re-mastered by Abbey Road Studios from the original ¼” master tapes). A digital booklet containing original album artwork, an interview with Cilla, detailed track information and rare photographs will be available from iTunes with purchases of the entire album re-issue.
