Aficionados of blues / jazz / folk-pop may be attracted to "Call off the Search," the debut album of the then 19 year-old Ketevan "Katie" Melua. Of Georgian origin, Melua moved to Northern Ireland and subsequently England. In 2006, she was the biggest-selling female artist in both the UK and Europe. Her first album topped the UK album chart in January 2004 and sold 1.8 million copies in the 5 months following its November 2003 release. The album includes the hit single "The Closest Thing to Crazy" and a cover version of Elkie Brooks' 1978 hit, "Lilac Wine".
Indie rock fans may like the eponymous 2004 debut album by British rock band Kasabian, which reached no.4 in the UK chart. The album gave rise to 4 singles, including "Club Foot," which features in various video games and several films.
Other noteworthy gold discs include "Lionheart" and "Hounds of Love" by Kate Bush, whose eclectic musical and idiosyncratic vocal styles have made her one of the UK's most successful artists. The former, released in late 1978, peaked at no.6 in the UK album chart and included the hit single, "Wow." Her 5th album, "Hounds of Love," released in 1985, is considered by many to be her finest work, topping the UK chart and selling in the region of 3 million copies.
Kylie Minogue memorabilia is highly collectible and the Australian star is dually represented by the gold records "Fever" and "Body Language".
