PLEASE READ!

Notice regarding shipping and transit times:

Due to the current global situation, transit times for domestic and international packages has increased. Foreign packages that normally take 1-3 weeks have taken as much as three months (or more) to arrive. While some packages are still arriving fairly quickly, I ask that anyone placing an order to please be patient. Transit times of other packages that may have arrived sooner have no bearing on how fast or slow the next package will be received. Tracking numbers do not always update once a package leaves the USA. I have no control over this or insight as to when your package may arrive. If this is a problem, please do not place an order.

The cost of international shipping is the same for 1 or 2 CD's (or 1 or 2 LP's), and then 3 to 8 CD's. At this time I am only providing international shipping for select countries as there have been some territories in which deliveries continue to be very problematic. Thank you.

Product Details

The 1984 sophomore album by Missing Persons, Rhyme & Reason, saw the band taking a more experimental approach. The prevailing sound of the album was Terry Bozzio’s electronic drums and percussion. Dale Bozzio reserved her trademark squeak to only one song while a couple of the single releases take a more serious lyrical direction. The album cover, with its sophisticated black and white Helmut Newton photos showing a generally make-up free band, could be somewhat misleading because the music video for the first single Give showed Missing Persons as colorful and distinctive as ever. Give was also the first Missing Persons single to be given the 12” Dance Mix treatment, extending the running time to nearly 7 minutes.
The pure pop Right Now was released as a second single and playful music video, while third single Surrender Your Heart took a more melodic approach with acoustic guitars complimenting the keyboard washes. The experimental All Fall Down and Racing Against Time added further layers to another strong album. Rhyme & Reason closes with what is arguably the best track, If Only For The Moment. The song had been remixed for an intended 12” single release but ended up left in the vault until finally being rescued for inclusion on a 2002 compilation CD, and now remastered from the original master tape and added as one of the bonus tracks on this newly remastered and expanded edition of Rhyme & Reason.
