Look sharp, Roxette fans: Per Gessle, one half of the '80s hitmakers, joins the latest episode of the Rhino Podcast to share some memories of the band's incredible run.

Alongside Rich Mahan and John Hughes, Gessle shares stories about the band's origins - including their love of power-pop and their ambitions to become "the Swedish Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers" - as well as some insight on the new collection Bag of Trix: Music from the Roxette Vaults, released this Friday, Dec. 11. The 3CD or 4LP set features 47 rare and unreleased recordings across the duo's discography.
