Abstract (Document Summary)

[Swain] appeared a little apprehensive that afternoon, sitting in a quiet, sunlit corner of a Beverly Hills restaurant awaiting a limousine to take her to tape a TV guest spot. One source of unrest might have been the fact that her new album, "Hard Machine," isn't exactly burning up the charts. That's because the first single, "Don't Make a Fool of Yourself," has been a slow starter.

"Better Than Heaven," her first Atlantic Records album, did feature some top-notch dance music. The first big hit single, "Two of Hearts," was a dance hit on a small, independent label when Atlantic purchased the rights to the single and signed her to record an album.

Many mistakenly thought Swain's first Atlantic album was her debut album. Actually she started recording in 1981. Her first record, with a band called Q, was a pop EP for an independent label. That's when she began working with Jon St. James, her mentor and the producer of her albums ever since.
