Crash! Boom! Bang! is Roxette’s fifth album. Recorded in Capri, Italy it sold fairly well and the world tour following its release was huge. The sleeve is of course designed by Kjell Andersson and Roxette. Crash! Boom! Bang! was released on vinyl in the UK.
Favorites from… was released in September, in the US only, by McDonald’s. The idea was “the album minus the singles”. This was a big marketing mistake and while it sold a lot at Mickey’s, normal record stores refused to carry the real album. This was basically the last Roxette did in the US, until 2012.
The album typography uses all-caps ITC Franklin Gothic, with alternating letter or word colors, in orange and red. Bodoni was used to set the record number and “EMI Svenska AB 1994” (not pictured).

I think ITC’s version of this decades-old gothic is being used here.
