"I was exhilarated. After seven years of trying, we had finally gotten a break [being signed by Gold Mountain Ltd. in 1984]. We went into the studio and recorded the album, and when a release date was set for the following August, we made sure the whole town knew about it."
"After all, we were the first San Diego band in years to sign with a big label. And we were all very, very proud."
"But then [Gold Mountain's distributor] A&M began tightening its belt and since we were a new band, we were squeezed out. We felt like fools--here we had told everyone about our record, and now that record wouldn't be coming out."--Paul Shaffer
