Who doesn’t appreciate some Seal? His tunes are a little soft for me to listen to regularly, but if I ever catch him on the radio, you know I’m belting out some Kiss from a Rose. My dad didn’t have any singles or LPs from him and I do feel his place in the collection is definitely deserved since he’s been so successful. This was the first I happened upon while crate digging but I would like to have more.
