Something to Shout About was the title of Lulu's first UK LP, released on the Decca Records label in 1965. Most of the songs are recorded in an R&B, early rock and roll style that complemented her mature and raspy voice. It was released when she was just seventeen. The album contained Lulu's debut hit "Shout", which reached #7 in the UK Singles Chart.

Jimmy Page played guitar on some of the tracks, including "I'll Come Running Over" and "Surprise, Surprise". "Here Comes the Night" was recorded in 1964 by Them and would later be covered by David Bowie on his 1973 album Pin Ups. The album was produced by Peter Sullivan and "directed" by Mike Leander and Reg Guest.

The album was reissued on CD in 1989 by London Records.
