Pearls Of Passion was Roxette's debut album in 1986 and it was later withdrawn and unavailable to buy in regular record shops. Second hand copies of the album eventually became rare which made the album one of the most desireble items to buy for the fans.
In order to make the album avaibalble for both new and old fans it was finally decided that the album should be re-released under the name Pearls Of Passion - The First Album.
This release of the album included the following eight bonus tracks:
Pearls Of Passion - Originally released as the B-side on Roxette's single Soul Deep.
It Must Have Been Love (Christmas For The Broken Hearted) - Originally released as a Roxette single in Scandinavia only at Christmas 1987.
Turn To Me - Originally released as the B-Side on Roxette's single It Must Have Been Love (Christmas For The Broken Hearted) and this is the first time this song is released on CD.
Neverending Love, Secrets That She Keeps and I Call Your Name (Demo Versions) - Those versions of the songs are unavailable anywhere else.
Neverending Love and I Call Your Name (Frank Mono Mixes) - These versions of the songs were previously only available on certain European single releases.
