This album is a compilation of songs recorded between the years of 1984 and 1986.

Her first four albums were not conceived and recorded as album releases, but were a gathering together of songs recorded at Cathedral Sound Studios from 1984 to 1986. When fellow musician Kevin Bartlett offered to release Rhodes' songs on his cassette-only personal label Aural Gratification, Rhodes culled through the songs she had recorded and ordered them to her satisfaction.

Rhodes I and Rhodes II are often considered to be a double album by fans because the songs are similar in musical style and lyrical subject matter. The songs on both albums are very acoustically orientated, with most songs consisting of Rhodes playing a guitar and singing. This is opposed to Rhodes' later albums, which rely more on her electronic talents.

Originally released as a cassette tape, each copy sold was a 1 to 1 real-time dub. Rhodes I was released on CD in 1992 with additional tracks.
