Their debut release, it was released only in Australia, New Zealand, North America, Japan and the Netherlands – though the European release was heavily 'imported to' the United Kingdom.[citation needed] The album includes tracks from the band's first three UK single releases, as well as the club mix version of "Long Hot Summer". The band's official, full-length studio album, Café Bleu, was released the following year.
