Fine Young Cannibals is the debut album released in 1985 by the band of the same name. The album features the UK #8 debut hit single "Johnny Come Home". This success did not continue with the next single, "Blue", which languished at #41 in the UK. The version of "Blue" on the original U.S. and Canadian vinyl LP and cassette was re-mixed and edited in an attempt to boost its commercial appeal. The re-mix version features additional electronically processed percussion overdubs, giving it a sound more typical of 1980s synthpop hits. Currently available CDs feature the re-mix version of Blue in place of the original U.S. album version. Album cover art was released in 2 versions. Original U.S and Canadian releases on I.R.S. Records had a blue tinted cover. Most other versions, such as the U.K. release on London Records has the artwork tinted in red.
