Listen Without Prejudice Vol.1

September 3, 1990


Listen Without Prejudice Vol.1 – George’s second solo studio album – was released. Produced, arranged and written almost entirely by George Michael it confirmed him as a pioneering, agenda-setting artist. Topping charts worldwide, the album rocketed to No.1 in the UK and peaked at number two on the US Billboard 200 chart. Listen Without Prejudice Vol.1 did well, selling eight million copies, but it did not sell as spectacularly as Faith. George wanted to play down his image and play up the quality of his music. He was determined not to associate his image with the record. No pictures ot him appeared on the sleeve. Unfortunately he felt that his American label did not supported him. His unhappiness led to a lawsuit against Sony.
