Notes: Seal's second album, confusingly also called Seal. Many of the performers were on the first Seal album: note Tim Weidner, Magnification producer, as one of the engineers, as before, but now also credited as a musician. Also note GTR's Phil Spalding, Art of Noise's Anne Dudley and William Orbit before he was famous. (HP; 6 Apr 03)
