What About Me is the debut studio album by Anne Murray issued in 1968 on Arc Records. Upon its release, the album was only issued in Canada (it would later be issued in the U.S. on the Pickwick label,[1] following Murray's 1970s chart success there).

The album was reissued in Europe on the Astan label under the title Both Sides Now, a sensible title given that the original title track What About Me had been dropped from the track listing.[2] "Both Sides Now" is, of course, the well known Joni Mitchell song covered on the album. Other versions of the album kept the title Both Sides Now but include the What About Me track.

In 1980, Chevron Records (UK) released an album (#CHVL 1830) with the same title but with a different cover art and slightly different track listing. There were only 10 tracks with "For Baby" missing.[3]
