The "Joyride" anniversary is celebrated with a vinyl box consisting of four LPs, which in addition to the original edition contains lots of unreleased or inaccessible material that paints a larger picture of a piece of Swedish music history: demos, alternative versions and leftover material.

In addition, a richly illustrated 32-page booklet is included, which in text and with unique images from Roxette's archive tells the story of how a classic Swedish pop album came to be.

Twelve previously unreleased songs.
Twelve of the songs are previously unreleased, including the first recording of "Hotblooded", which for a while was intended as the album's opening song before "Joyride" pushed it to second place. Interestingly, there are also two Golden Age songs here, which in January 1990 were candidates to end up on the upcoming Roxette record.

- It's about "Run" and "Another Place, Another Time", which Gyllene released on our English record "Heartland Café" in 1984. And when I was looking for material for the new record in the autumn of 1989, I stuck to the two. We made new and more "Roxified" demo versions of them - and above all "Run" I think could have been as strong as possible, Per Gessle remembers.

However, the recordings were put on the shelf - in Roxhögkvarteret there was a small but strong taboo against Roxette and Gyllene Tider being mixed together, so therefore they have been collecting dust in the archive. Up until now.

Other 1990 demos that can now be heard for the first time are "Small Talk", "Church Of Your Heart", "Physical Fascination", "Things Will Never Be The Same", "I Remember You" and not least the upcoming single back "The Sweet Hello, The Sad Goodbye "- one of the strongest songs that never managed to take a place on the album, later a big favorite among many Roxette fans and recorded by several other artists, including American singer Laura Branigan.

"Sweet Thing" is also one of many candidates who never managed to elbow their way into the "Joyride" album, but who now see the light of day for the first time.
