is the debut album by Branigan American singer Laura Branigan, released in March 1982 on Atlantic Records.
Two singles were released from the album: Although the first "All Night With Me", failed to enter the
Top 40, the second single, an English version of the Italian hit by [1 ] Umberto Tozzi " Gloria", made the singer a star. [3 ]
The album included ballads "If You Loved Me" and "I Wish We Could Be Alone", the latter written by Branigan. It also included the pop-rock "Please Stay, Go Away" and the straight-ahead rock of "Living a Lie".
The album was certified gold. Her
Eurodisco version of "Gloria" was nominated for, but failed to win, a Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance.
A remastered and expanded edition of the album is slated for release by Gold Legion, but has yet to materialize.
