Rupert Hine R.I.P.

Words are hard to find. Rupert was one of my oldest and dearest friends.

Insightful, stimulating, talented and funny, I feel privileged to have known and worked with him. An absolute gentleman. I produced his first album in 1971, Pick Up A Bone, with his partner David MacIver. He went on to be one of the most innovative and influential producers around and broke boundaries in the emerging recording technology of the 70s.


Hear Here – Part Three


Rupert Hine/David MacIver (from the album Pick Up A Bone, 1971)

I met Rupert Hine and David MacIver in the mid 60s. They were sort of modelled on Simon and Garfunkel, I was in Episode Six. Years later, we hooked up again, this time I was in DP. They were still writing interesting acoustic songs, so when Purple records happened, I resolved to record them.
