Twelve inch vinyl pressing. Spandau Ballet signed their first recording contract on bassist Martin Kemp's 18th birthday. As soon as they had finished, they headed straight to Utopia Studios in Primrose Hill to cut their debut single 'To Cut a Long Story Short'. Within a month the single had been released and two weeks later the band were on Top of the Pops. The song is now acknowledged as the very first new romantic single, a sound and movement that changed the world.
