Q. Who produced your first album? Are they part of a record label?

The Oracle replies:

Ken Nelson produced the first album. Some producers may have record deals in their own right but not as a general rule. Ken was not and is not part of a record label.
Caroline Elleray (from the band's publishing company), introduced Dan Keeling (their then A&R man at Parlophone) to Ken.
