Ars Nova was signed in 1968. They did one album for us that tanked. They did a second album for Atlantic in 1969 and it tanked too.

I don't know that we were trying to cultivate anything other than record sales. The folk music scene, our bread and butter since 1955, was in serious decline and we tried a number of different acts. The Doors, obviously, worked for us. Ars Nova didn't.

That's it for today. I've got a golf game with Maynard Solomon to get to.
