Chér is the third studio album by American singer-actress Cher, released on October 1966 by Imperial. Cher collaborates again with Sonny Bono, with Harold Battiste and with Stan Ross. The album is by-and-large a covers album and contains only one song written by Bono. This album was a commercial success, charted #59 on the Billboard Chart. The album again follows the same formula of the two previous albums, with rearranged covers and new songs written by Bono exclusively for her. There's more French influence in the record and more folk.
only hit in Europe generated from this album was her version of Burt
Bacharach's "Alfie" from the Michael Caine movie. Although her
version was on the film's soundtrack, it didn't fare nearly as well
as the Dionne Warwick version now considered definitive.
