Label: Inner Vision – IVL 25328. Format: Vinyl, LP, Album. The first and IMHO the very best album of Wham! Pity that their succeeding albums were not funky anymore (aimed at a bigger audience maybe?

The next single from the Wham album was "Careless Whisper", but it featured only George Michael in the music video.

Recording Fantastic was great – although I’d worked in studios before, this was a new experience for us all and so exciting. George particularly had driving passion and ambition – and, of course, the songs were brilliant. I knew they were going to be huge. Wham Rap! (Enjoy What You Do?) was released as Wham!’s debut single in June 1982. With a number-one album, a string of Top 10 singles and a sold-out UK tour behind them, Wham! fought – and won – their battle to release themselves from Innervision. The cessation of legal wranglings finally granted them the freedom to begin work on their sophomore record, Make It Big. And make it big, they did.
