Companies, etc.



SACD layer audio contains a different version of "Never Coming Home", primarily featuring a longer piano solo. Credits for both audio layers are identical. The track data on the SACD layer lists track 12 as "Shape Of My Heart (New Version)" but it is the live version found on the standard CD layer.

This album is dedicated to the memory of Kim Turner and Tim White who were my close friends and colleagues for 25 years.

Stereo Mastering and 5.1 Mastering at Abbey Road Studios.
