Rhyme (1988)

Rhyme Cover ArtRhyme was recorded in a small cellar in Rörstrandsgatan in Vasastan, the northern part of inner city Stockholm. Again recorded on a Fostex 16 Track By Dare Mason it was an ambitious production in a damp cellar. When it was finished it looked and sounded like it had been done somewhere posh but believe me it wasn’t. The record again featured an eclectic mix from the acoustic poetry of Melody Of the Rain to the over the top drum machine production on Melancholy Girl. It was the eighties and nothing was going to stop those drums from sounding like that. The pure romance of Forever had lovesick couples playing the song at their weddings and the lilting country swing of the melody ridden Questions Without Answers spawned a great video in Stockholm filmed in Gamla Stan (Old town), Söder (the south part of the inner city) and Millesgården in Lidingö, the sculpture garden of famous Swedish sculptor Carl Milles.The photo on the cover was taken as a Rickenbacker promo shot by Caroline Greyshock  but it looked so good that I decided to use it as the cover art.
