Rupert Hine: Immunity (1981)
Hine's three records from the 1980s are easy to find and bizarrely cheap. I routinely see them in bins for $2 or $3. It pains me to see them languishing in bins while so many people flip past them. I have never understood why they have no value and why Hine doesn't have more fans. It's perplexing, especially considering his success as a producer.
This record was released after Quantum Jump, Hine's previous band, disbanded. Immunity is a great record, commencing with the fabulous I Hang on to My Vertigo. If you see this record, you should buy it.
