The time following the summer of was difficult for the band. Soto was signed to the Pasha label with Eyes. Bieler was enjoying some success with Saigon Kick. Jacob got signed to Warner Sweden because of the success of " Talisman " and had to put together a band. A trip to the US and the UK followed, looking for talent but without success. However, a change in personnel at Warner resulted in Talisman leaving that label and, with Talisman spending most of looking for a new label, Alfonzetti left to join Skin Trade.
Wedin was interested in releasing a second Talisman album, if Soto was available. As Eyes were now no longer together, Soto agreed and the band returned to the studio. In the interim, Samuels had left to join Zinny J. Zan 's band and so Jacob programmed all drums on an Alesis SR The new album " Genesis " was recorded in three weeks in December at Stocksund Recording Studios. In conjunction with the release of " Genesis " early , Dino Music re-released the first album " Talisman " adding six live tracks recorded in Sweden in When " Genesis " was released, the single "Mysterious" got some airplay, and the album immediately sold more than 15, copies in Sweden.
Furthermore, both " Talisman " and " Genesis " gathered some international interest and were released throughout Europe and Japan. While the band was planning a tour in Japan, Samuel left again to pursue a singing career. The new drummer was Jamie Borger from the recently broken-up Treat.
Talisman became a 'group' for the first time and were now ready to tour Japan where the live album " Five out of Five Live in Japan " was recorded. After the end of the European tour in early October, the band were scheduled to fly to Los Angeles to record the already available material. But those plans were disregarded and the recording got delayed. Everything was perfect: the recording sessions, the working environment, everyone having much fun!
Except for Jeff being worried about his home situation because of the huge earthquake which hit LA killing 60 and injuring around 8, people. Additional musicians on " Humanimal " were Julie Greaux as backing vocalist and the sound engineer Ronny Lahti playing the funky wah guitar on "Seasons".
The guys, being so pleased with the recordings 22 tracks recorded and mixed in 22 days , wanted to make it a double album at first, but then decided against it since pretty much all the material would fit on one cd.
So Jeff and Marcel chose the set of the songs to be on the album. Unfortunately, the Japanese label Zero, was allowed to put together their own version of the album suitable for the Japanese audience. The whole matter turned out to be a mess: the German version by Polydor was different from the Swedish one featuring "Hypocrite" as bonus track. The Japanese had to release the Swedish version too because of the amount of imports.
In Europe a second version was released with the outtakes from the first one. It is still the favourite album of several fans and of more than one member in the band.
