Darker Days

 

Darker Days is the debut album by the American pop/rock band The Connells, initially released in 1985 on independent label Black Park Records in the United States, and on Demon Records in the U.K. The Black Park and Demon versions are distinct, with different cover art and running order, the substitution of "In My Head" for "Dial It", and several remixed tracks. The Black Park version of the album was re-released in 1987 on TVT Records.
