38 Years Ago DEF LEPPARD Reissue PHOTOGRAPH Single In The UK

Def Leppard 2016. Photograph 1984

Def Leppard reissued their classic Photograph single 38 years ago on this day in 1984 in the UK.

The Marilyn Monroe-inspired song had been released on 28th January 1983 as the first single from the 'Pyromania' album.

The original reached Number 66 on the UK Top 100 chart but this re-release did not chart.

It was reissued to capitalise on the band's American success and their increased profile in the UK after the second UK tour in December 1983.

The first of two singles released by the band in 1984. The second being the new remixed version of 'BOTH' which would be released in North America in May 1984.

The cover art for this single featured a new design by artist Peter Hill. It was made to look like a wallet stuffed with British one and five pound notes.
