March 1986 saw the release of her first album proper, simply titled Anna Domino. Produced by Alan Rankine (Associates) and Marc Moulin (Telex), the record was an immediate success, mixing her cool, reflective vocals and intelligent lyrics with the addictive rhythmic styles typified by the singles Take That and Summer, the latter remixed by New York maestro Arthur Baker. An extensive European tour followed, and a string of licensing deals around the world all helped the make the album one of the major independent successes on 1986. In the UK, the album appeared on the cult Manchester label Factory Records, and Anna also provided guest vocals on the album Infected by The The.
