Kevin Shirley (Always and Someday I'll Be Saturday Night)


Kevin Shirley has denied working on Always and if that is true there is no engineer listed for the song in the liner notes.

There are many engineers listed in the credits due to the liner notes just having copied the liner notes from the respective albums songs were lifted from. For example; there is no clear picture as to what engineer actually worked on In & Out Of Love.

The same story goes for backup singers on In And Out Of Love, You Give Love A Bad Name, Lay Your Hands On Me and Bad Medicine. Not knowing who sang what all they could do was just list all the singers who worked on the record.
