    Pearls of Passion is Roxette’s debut album. Released in Sweden and in Canada of all places! It contains the hits “Neverending Love”, “Soul Deep”, and “Goodbye to You”. It didn’t make any noise whatsoever outside of Sweden. Designed by Kjell Andersson as all of EMI’s albums were back then. There was a CD re-release in 1997 where the fonts were subtly changed, ITC Fat Face became Poster Bodoni for instance.
