“Copper Blue” is the debut studio album by American alternative rock band Sugar. It was voted 1992 Album of the Year by the NME. All of the songs were written by guitarist/vocalist Bob Mould, who also co-produced with Lou Giordano .  The song “The Slim” is about losing someone to AIDS. Musically, the band continues the thick punk guitar of Mould’s previous band, Husker Du, while slowing the tempo and emphasizing melody even more.

A limited edition initial run of the CD was released by Rykodisc in a front-and-back metal copper sleeve with each of the 2,500 copies containing a one-of-a-kind polaroid photo taken by one of the three band members and stamped on the back with “Sugar Copper Blue Summer ’92.”
