Rescue Roses

The Krayolas | Myspace Music Videos

On July 13, 2007, The Krayolas make their first live TV appearance in more than 20 years on WOAI-TV's "San Antonio Living" with Shelly Miles and Leslie Bohl Jones to sing "Rescue Roses" and announce the short-lived Palladium Summer Concert Series. The date is important. After this performance, Hector Saldana met with Augie Meyers at Meyers' home to hear for the first time a cassette of the long-lost Sir Douglas Quintet song "Little Fox.' Until that time, The Krayolas only knew that Augie Meyers had an obscure "Mendocino"-era song called "Little Fox" for them. At that meeting Saldana came up with the catchy chorus and Meyers' suggested replacing the original trumpet hook with The Krayolas chiming 12-string Rickenbacker electric guitars. Two months later, on August 8, 2007, The Krayolas with Augie Meyers on organ recorded "Little Fox," as well as the Saldana-penned "Rescue Roses" and "I Just Wanna (Be With You All the Time)." The Krayolas really had no clue what was just around the corner at the time of this TV gig.
