Recorded in 1973 at the Church Of Saint Mary Magdalene in Paddington, London, 'Unfinished Picture' is Rupert Hine's second LP. The songs where all composed by Hine with lyrics by David McIver and Simon Jeffries. On its sessions, Hine was surrounded by a host of outstanding musicians that included Simon Jeffes (Penguin Cafe Orchestra), Mike Giles (Giles, Giles & Fripp/King Crimson), Mick Waller (Cyril Davis, The Steampacket, Jeff Beck Group), Ray Cooper (Eric Clapton, Elton John) among others. Rupert Hine's recording adventures started with the release of a 7" 45 by the folk duo Rupert & David, 'The Sounds Of Silence.' In 1971 he was approached by Purple Records for the release of his debut solo LP 'Pick Up A Bone,' which despite its lack of commercial success featured a strong collection of critically acclaimed compositions that made Purple Records want him to record a second album - 'Unfinished Picture,' on which Hine showed a fantastic evolution to a more conceptual, cinematic approach. Echoes of Ray Davies, Kevin Ayers or hints of Nick Drake taken to a more 'happy' territoire mix with beautiful strings by The Martyn Ford Orange Ensemble and even some ARP synth explorations to build a fantastic collection of sounds that take the listener on a trip through the worlds of folk, psych and prog. Hine's career would soon take off as a famed producer, he did work with Kevin Ayers, Milla Jovovich, Jonesy, Steve Tilston, Anthony Phillips, Camel, Saga, Rush, Tina Turner, Howard Jones, Bob Geldof, Suzanne Vega, and many others. The Wah Wah reissue offers the original artwork in its gatefold cover and insert and is limited to 500 copies only!
