Profile “‘In the Face’ was Caruso’s seventh release (including singles) and the second of three EPs.  At the time of its release, no other local record had sold more copies in the 30-year history of Harmony House, a Michigan music store chain. The album was recorded on digital, reel-to-reel tape. This new medium kept the noise level of the entire recording extremely low, but since the album was only released on vinyl and cassette, no one has ever been able to hear the songs the way they originally sounded in the studio until their re-release on CD in 1999.

This was our first all-pro studio EP.  All recording was done at Studio A in Dearborn Heights, MI, with owner and producer Eric Morgeson at the helm.  Our previous EP was a collection of music recorded at the old Studio A, originally located in Eric’s garage, and another studio which we built at our parent’s house, sound booth and all.  At the center of the recording and the sound of ‘In the Face’ was a Synclavier, a very expensive synthesizer / sampler that Eric had acquired which, along with his skills and credentials as a producer, set Studio A apart from other local studios.  The recently purchased Synclavier was used extensively throughout the album, along with the ‘big drums’ effects which were so pervasive in 80s releases.  As you’ll notice from the album cover, big drums and big hair seemed to go together at that time.” Caruso opens for Foghat.
