Hi Bob, I was introduced to the band by Arista A&R man Roger Birnbaum. The first time I saw them I loved them. We recorded the first album at A&M Studio D, the second at Chateau Recorders in North Hollywood.

You're right, they don't get the recognition they deserve. Arista was a great label for top 40 hits but they had this habit of signing primarily instrumental bands that they had absolutely no idea how to market. They did the same thing with the Dixie Dregs after Capricorn folded.
