It has been very interesting reading all of your comments about Metropolitan Records. I was there from the beginning and wrote and produced the April album, Laissez Faire, Cheree and various other artists. In the beginning it was great fun, but by 1992-93 - how did BB King put it - the thrill was gone. I never considered myself to be on the same level of the great freestyle producers like Elvin Molina or Andy Panda, but I loved the music and was pretty good at coming up with a catchy hook. The problem was that the money was not so great. I stepped down as A&R guy and head producer to attend law school, and Adam Moreno essentially took over. I really did not know Adam, but he seemed like a very nice guy. Other than the Collage song, and another remake he did of some I think 80's love ballad put to a generic Planet Rock beat, I don't recall his material. I do agree with many of your comments - alot of the Metro stuff was inferior, due in large part to serious budget constraints. But I enjoyed writing and producing the songs, and it really was a good experience that I now can share with my kids. It's still fun to be riding in the car and hear IN Paradise on 103.5. Long Live Freestyle!
