Personnel[edit]

Note: Although the back of the CD tray inlay for the 1996 Metropolis edition shows/lists Ricky Ricardo on bass, the liner notes in the cover booklet state: "All Bass Tracks Performed by Kevin Chown." The 2002 Lion edition correctly lists and shows Kevin Chown on bass, as does the back of the CD tray inlay.
