The LP "World of Blue" features Merlo Podlewski on guitar. I first met Merlo in 1994.
My sister Rachel Haden, who had been working with him at the Rhino Records
store in Westwood, knew I was looking for a new guitarist for my band, and
introduced us. Merlo is one of those guitarists whose playing is so smooth and
effortless he makes anyone feel like they can play. He had an instinctual grasp of
harmony and theory, which brought a great counterpoint to the technical knowledge and finesse of lead guitarist Ken.
Eventually a label that did want to sign us got in touch with me. Restless Records
was a local indie record company that had flirted with major label success with
bands like Poison and Stryper. Their office was an old rickety house off Sunset Blvd.
in Hollywood and they had decent distribution, so I said to myself, "Why not?".
This eventually led to the recording that produced our debut LP "Blue Moods of
Spain".
