A Credit To Their Profession
Filed under: Spellbound
Entertainment Weekly - May 17, 1991
Album credits used to be simple: who played what, who produced which cuts, who took the cover photo. No longer. As demonstrated by the reams names of Paula Abdul's Spellbound, pop stars now take up inordinate amounts of space on their albums listing anyone who has helped them in their careers, from childhood buddies to any company that ever lent them a guitar.
For proof, we offer the following recent bursts of appreciation:
