Sher-oo! is the title of Cilla Black's third solo studio album released on 6 April 1968 by Parlophone Records. The album reached #7 on the UK Album Chart.[2] The album was originally released in stereo and mono and has not had a complete CD re-issue.

The lead single for the album project was "Step Inside Love", this reached #8 on the UK Singles Chart. An Italian language version of this song "M'Innamoro", with lyrics by Mogel, was also recorded for the Latin market. "Step Inside Love" was notably used as the opening theme tune to seasons 1-4 of Cilla's BBC TV variety show Cilla.
