ESOTERIC RECORDINGS are pleased to issue this compilation by the legendary composer, performer & producer RUPERT HINE.
As a producer, Hine’s work with artists as diverse as Rush, Tina Turner and Suzanne Vega is well known, but his work as an artist in his own right is also highly regarded by fellow musicians and fans alike.
After coming to the attention of a wider public with his band QUANTUM JUMP, Rupert signed as a solo artist to A&M Records and recorded a trio of superb and highly innovative albums between 1981 and 1983. “Immunity”, “Waving Not Drowning” and “The Wildest Wish to Fly” featured some of the most original music of the 1980s, music which remains startlingly fresh. The albums also featured guest contributions from musicians of the calibre of ROBERT PALMER and PHIL COLLINS.
Superbly re-mastered by acclaimed engineer Stephen W Tayler, (who engineered the original recordings), “Unshy on the Skyline” features the highlights of this trio of albums and a booklet with an essay and note by Rupert Hine.
N.B: This title is released March 30 and will not be dispatched before his date.
