«Tamboo», Rupert's original and official website which I created in 1997 shut down in 2012, after 15 years of service, but is still accessible as an archive link there [archives mean that a few broken links and techno misbaheviours may occur, yet considerable information can be found through it on Rupert Hine's works, as an artist, songwriter, and producer, including Rupert's comments and interviews on various projects.] .
I wish to thank Rupert Hine for having giving me 'carte blanche' for the creation of his official website in these early days of the internet; this handcrafted beast was such a thrilling challenge and amazing experience.
"Beyond the artist, I could also enjoy the producer in you, a soul naturally able to detect and boost one's idiosyncratic ideas and skills, you clever elegance, always curious and fun. Thanks for the work and fun we shared. Rest in peace my friend."

Rupert and David (Rupert Hine): The Sound of Silence
7" from UK, 1965
advance test pressing - ultra rare test pressing of the Rupert Hine debut single from 1965 - personnel included a young Jimmy Page, Herbie Flowers on bass and a 26-piece orchestra - in the early sixties, Rupert and David used to perform in pubs and clubs where the then relatively unknown Paul Simon would also play. Both versions of 'The Sound Of Silence' were released in England at the same time. Neither of them sold more than 2,000 copies (Simon only later became famous with this song thanks to Dylan's producer Bob Johnstone who added electric guitars, bass and drums to the track)
