Don't Take Love for Granted

Heaven and Earth and the Stars is a 1976 album by Lulu. It was the second and last of her albums to be released on the Chelsea record label, which ceased production this year.[1] Like the previous album, it was produced by Wes Farrell, apart from two tracks "The Man Who Sold the World" and "Watch That Man" which were produced by David Bowie and Mick Ronson.[2] The former had been a big hit for Lulu, reaching No.3 in the UK, although had been released more than two years before this album's release.[3] Also from 1974 was Lulu's theme song for the James Bond film, The Man with the Golden Gun, produced by John Barry. Another hit single featured on this album was "Take Your Mama for a Ride", which had been a No.37 hit in 1975.[4] Despite these inclusions, the album failed to chart, being too late to cash in on the hits. Further singles released from the album were "Boy Meets Girl" and the title track, bring the total single releases to five - half the album.[5]

Tracks from the album were released on Compact disc in 1999 on a compilation with her previous album.[6]
