First Offense is the first album by Corey Hart, released in 1984. It includes the hit single "Sunglasses at Night" and the ballad "It Ain't Enough". Hart was subsequently nominated for four Juno Awards and a Grammy Award for "Best New Artist".
Three versions of First Offense were released. Both Canadian editions (on Aquarius Records) feature a black and white photograph of Hart on the cover standing against a brick wall. After the initial 1984 release, the track listing was amended for a revised 1985 issue, with one track being dropped, another added, and two tracks appearing in edited or remixed form. The U.S. edition (released on EMI in 1985) is more familiar as it is the cover used for all CD releases of the album (including the Canadian CD release) and features a color close-up shot of Hart with stubble. Both versions of the Canadian LP edition feature an extra track, "Araby (She's Just a Girl)", which was not used on the EMI edition and has never been released on CD. As well, the initial Canadian LP edition features the track "Don't Keep Your Heart" which has similarly never been issued on CD.
