Wanted is the debut album by British pop singer Yazz, released in 1988. The album contains the single "The Only Way Is Up", which reached number one in six countries. Wanted was certified double platinum in the UK in September 1989, for sales exceeding 600,000 copies.

This is a compilation of the 1988 Yazz "Wanted" album and b-sides and mixes taken from its four main singles. Also included are tracks from the France only 1990 "Yazz' Megamix" release and the 1990 non-album single "Treat Me Good" (although reportedly it comes from the second, cancelled Yazz album). Doctorin' The House", considered to be Yazz's debut release (she provides lead vocals on the 1988 Coldcut release) wasn't included on the original "Wanted" album and is omitted here as well.

Yazz was born in Shepherd's Bush, London, to a Jamaican father and English mother. She attended Holland Park School, where she excelled at sports, including the 400 metres. She was also a member of the England under-19 volleyball team

What does it sound like?: Inspired by Tiggerlion’s pre Christmas look at the Human League, Bargepole casts his beady eye over this 3 cd reissue of Yazz’s 1988 album ‘Wanted’. You might raise an enquiring eyebrow as three cds does seem an awful lot of music to come out of this single vinyl album, which comprised only nine songs.
