Produced by Stephen Lipson, it also contained a US Top 10 hit, “As I Lay Me Down,” the longest running hit single in AC music for 67 weeks and made world wide platinum status. Three singles from the album made the UK top 40, including “Right Beside You,” which peaked at #13. It reached number 2 in the Dutch Top 40.
