    Rupert Hine in a recording studio in 1973. Although he performed under his own name, he was best known as a hit-making producer. “I never wanted to be a rock star,” he said.

    I think this an absolutely fabulous record. My only regret, when I interviewed Rupert years ago, was not asking him about it. Some top flight drumming from the fantastic Mike Giles.

    I believe Rooms on Fire was written about Rupert if Icrecall correctly. One reason Nick's rarely performed the song live after that tour.
