Pearls of Passion by Swedish pop duo Roxette, originally released on cassette and vinyl on 31 October 1986 in Scandinavia and Canada. The record was an immediate commercial success in Sweden, peaking at number two on the albums chart, and going on to sell over 200,000 copies by the end of 1987. Gessle and Fredriksson recorded their debut studio album at EMI Studios in Stockholm (Baggpipe Studios).
However, it failed to chart internationally. “Neverending Love”, “Goodbye to You”, “Soul Deep” and “I Call Your Name” were released as singles, with the first three becoming top twenty hits in Sweden.
