The 7" is on incredibly thick heavyweight vinyl, protected in a die-cut white card inner sleeve.
This is then housed in a luxurious thick card spined sleeve.
Also inside the sleeve is a large lyric poster (14" square) which repeats the cover line art and includes the lyrics to the A-side.

There is a two-track C.D. single available which has a different second track - "Comfort In Love".
There are import three-track C.D. singles available that have all three tracks mentioned above.

There was also available a one-track promo C.D. with catalogue number CDRDJ 6673.

4th September 2005 - "Fine Line" enters the UK charts at number 20.
That was it's peak position as it quickly fell out of the chart.

                                          Chart progression:   20 - 50 - 78 .... out

I am led to believe that as of 2nd December 2005 Fine Line had sold about five and a half thousand copies.
