ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
1987 was a whirlwind of excitement and activity as I juggled writing, recording and performing. It was a time where most L.A. rock artists were playing hair/glam metal, where I instead gravitated towards the funk/rock genre.

"You Do It The Right Way" (Dance Mix) was recorded at the legendary Sunset Sound and was mixed by Brian Soucy.

"Dangerous" was mixed by Coke Johnson (Prince) and was subsequently sent to a receptive Michael Jackson in 1988. (Ironically, Michael Jackson released a similar song called "Dangerous" three years later). Both "You Do It The Right Way" and "Dangerous" had received a significant amount of airplay on The World Famous KROQ Radio in 1987 and 1988. "I've Gotta Get Your Number" (also mixed by Coke Johnson) is a catchy pop/rock song with a ton of passion and a cool saxophone part that doubles the vocal on the chorus. “Emotions Are Hot Tonight” is a bit edgier than the rest and you may hear a little Bowie influence. It features Chris Mostert (The Eagles) on saxophone and it was also recorded at Sunset Sound and was mixed by Brian Soucy.

Looking back, this was a very exciting and promising time in my music career, but for
one reason or another, these four songs were never officially released, till now.
