John Gorka's old label tried to make him "big". He told something about this period in "Willamette Week Music" (1999):
"Yeah, Windham Hill wasn't the place it was when I joined up [in 1990]. The people who brought me in had all gone--either left or were fired--and it was a different place than when I started, one I didn't want to be part of anymore. It became a power thing; they wanted me to listen to what they said, and I couldn't and shouldn't have. I'd done my first disc with Red House, and I've been friends with Bob Feldman at Red House all through the Windham Hill years. We look at music the same way--making a good record first, then worrying about the marketing later, not the other way around. "
