Roxette ‎– Joyride (US Promo 12″)

Catchy Pop/Rock from Roxette , Formed in 1986 in Halmstad, Sweden by Per Gessle and Marie Fredriksson. (I didn’t know they were around a long time before their 90’s breakthrough) This was from 1991 and from the album of the same name. Crunchy guitars and Beatles-esque touches (think Magical Mystery Tour) and of course a whistle solo! It was produced by keyboard player Clarence Öfwerman with the definite “Extended Mix” revealing an electronic foundation to the song, almost synthpop remix by Brian Malouf. The synth string on “Come Back” remind me of A-ha and is a genuine, quality B-side !
