Repeat Offender is the second studio album by singer/songwriter Richard Marx. Released in mid-1989, it reached No. 1 on the Billboard Pop Albums chart. The album went on to sell over five million copies in the US alone (several times that worldwide) due to five major singles on the Billboard charts, including two No. 1 hits: "Satisfied" and the Platinum-certified "Right Here Waiting".
Assyrian Rose continues the style he developed on his earlier CMP release Seven Heaven, with Layne Redmond helping out on various frame drums and Steve Gorn playing bansuri and South American flutes. They are joined by Jon Clark on French horn and Howard Levy on harmonica and piano, adding a greater melodic range to the music. Glen plays his usual variety of frame drums (from Spain and Morocco), Egyptian tambourine and various other percussion instruments. The result is a cross-cultural potpourri of earth-jazz stylings, with Glen's pulsating rhythms leading. The album ends with a solo on one of Glen's tambourines, revealing his mastery of this instrument that plays such a central role in Arabic music.
