Said and Done is the debut album by Irish boy band Boyzone. The album was released on 21 August 1995 by Polydor Records. As of December 1997, the album had sold 2.2 million copies worldwide.[2]

Background[edit]

The album was released officially in Ireland and the UK on 21 August 1995, by Polygram International and in the United States. Nearly a month after its release, the album topped the UK Albums Chart on the week of 2 September 1995.[3] The album was certified as 3x Platinum in the UK.[4] The album spent 58 weeks on the UK Top 75 Albums chart.[5] Some Japanese Editions of the album came encased in a special slipcase, containing a bonus photo booklet.[6] The first Irish pressing of the album, of which only around 10,000 copies exist, contains the group's debut single, "Working My Way Back to You", in place of "Father and Son", which was featured as a B-side to "Love Me for a Reason" instead. This version was available nearly two months earlier, on 4 August 1995, as an exclusive to the Irish retail chain Foley's.[7] All later pressings contain the final track listing. Five official singles were released from the album: "Love Me for a Reason", "Key to My Life", "So Good", "Father and Son" and "Coming Home Now". "Believe in Me" was also issued as a single, exclusively in Japan. It was released as an alternative to "Father and Son" in the country. The Boyzone members on this album are Ronan Keating, Keith Duffy, Michael Graham, Shane Lynch and Stephen Gately.
