Rick Beato Episode 105 - Seal…


Recommended Posts

IMO the best episode of this fantastic series to date.

Absolute genius songwriting (Seal) and arranging (Trevor Horn) for a song still played frequently on main stream radio. Unbelievable little gems almost hidden in the orchestration.

Gave me chills…

Massive Seal fan here. The first two albums in particular are just fantastic. Future Love Paradise is one of my favourite songs. In fact Seal’s first is one of the albums I’d most liked to have played on.

Love his first album, not really listened to the second. Will have to take the time to listen! Agree re. Future Love Paradise :)

It’s a few years ago, but I’m sure I heard mention that Doug Wimbish played some bass on that album?

Yup, I have heard that Doug, and also possibly Guy Pratt, played on his first album?

Doug did - check out “Wild” towards the end of the first album. Fantastic bass playing. Not sure about Guy. 
The second album with Kiss From A Rose says Pino Palladino and Laurence Cottle on bass. However I remember reading that Trevor Horn and Seal were unhappy with the overall result of many of the recorded parts, so loaded them all into samplers and re-did the lot. Possibly only this track survived as the drums and bass “sound” played. 
I thought the first album was raw and fantastic and had a great sense of machine-type grooves but with a real player feel. The second album is very lush and beautifully engineered but a touch soulless for me.

I do definitely prefer the first, but I still think the second is a great album, has some great songs on it.

Those vocals... DAMN! 

I remember wondering how he got that vocal sound and then the first time I heard him speaking he sounded just the same. It was a real “doh!” moment.
