Additional personnel


Note: This album was the first in the line of many other albums in which Artists & Repertoire Executive John Kalodner would simply have his name listed twice in an album's liner notes, as a play on this album's title. This was the first album in which he began this practice that continued on many other albums that he worked on up until his retirement. According to Kalodner's web site, the phrase "John Kalodner: John Kalodner" originated with this album when the album's producer, Keith Olsen, was wondering just how to credit Kalodner's involvement with the band and the album. In keeping with the double vision theme, Foreigner guitarist Mick Jones came up with idea of doubling Kalodner's name.[3]
