This was Madonna's first album, and was dedicated to her father. Originally to be named 'Lucky Star' it later became self-titled 'Madonna' for its official worldwide release on July 27th, 1983. It was, however, released in South Africa as 'Lucky Star' with different artwork, and a 3.41 version of 'Burning Up'.
In September 1985, the album was repackaged outside the US, using different cover art and re-titled The First Album, but with (by and large) the same catalogue numbers.
In 2001 the album was remastered with improved sound and bonus remixes of 'Burning Up' & 'Lucky Star' while retaining the original art work & title.
