A three CD set gathering together the wonderful music of musician and producer Rupert Hine issued between 1981 and 1983.

‘Surface Tension – The Recordings 1981-1983’ includes the albums ‘Immunity’, ‘Waving Not Drowning’ and ‘The Wildest Wish To Fly’ celebrating the creativity and originality of Rupert’s solo work of the early 1980s. The acclaimed and strikingly original ‘Immunity’ from 1981 saw the noted producer on compositions written by him with lyricist Jeannette Obstoj. Guest performers on the album included Phil Collins and Marianne Faithfull; the album would influence a host of celebrated musicians and continues to do so.

The 1982 album Waving Not Drowning’ was another fine work and was particularly popular in Scandinavia and once again featured Phil Collins, while 1983’s ‘The Wildest Wish To Fly’ was a hit album in Sweden and featured a guest appearance by Robert Palmer among others.

All of these recordings were engineered and co-produced by Stephen W Tayler, who has remastered this collection. The liner notes of the illustrated booklet that accompanies this release offer memories and observations of the recording sessions for these ground breaking recordings. This boxed set is a fine tribute to Rupert Hine, a greatly missed musical visionary.
