Ooooooweeee!!! is the third album of singer Dusty Springfield to be released in the USA, issued on the Philips Records label in 1965 and including the hit single "Losing You". Even more so than Springfield's two first US albums, Ooooooweeee!!! can be considered as a compilation since it comprises tracks both from her British debut album A Girl Called Dusty as well as recordings originally issued on various A- and B-side singles and EP's - recorded and released in the UK over a period of some eighteen months. Ooooooweeee!!! also features tracks from Springfield's September 1964 sessions in New York, produced by Shelby Singleton Jr, some of which would remain unreleased in her native Britain until 1998, and the CD re-issue of the 1965 album Ev'rything's Coming Up Dusty.

Ooooooweeee!!! was first released on CD by Mercury Records/Universal Music in 1999, then also featuring three bonus tracks.
