    Roxette went on a major world tour in 1991–1992, Join the Joyride! During that tour they recorded songs, as they say on the sleeve – in “studios, stages, hotelrooms (sic) & other strange places”, among those the very famous Ocean Way Recording studio in Los Angeles where they cut a country version of their major hit “It Must Have Been Love”. Per asked the technician if they could have the piano sound like John Lennon’s in “Imagine”. The tech said yes, but why? It didn’t happen! Released on vinyl, CD, MC and MD.

    The typeface family used all over this is Futura, in different styles.
