There are great moments on every Polara album I've heard, but I really love that first album. One of the best albums of the decade for me
I missed this even though I'm friends with Ed on FB but this is really terrible news ;_;. My heart goes out to their family.

I'm positive I saw them at a show in SoCal at least once but the details are fuzzy.
The one time I saw Polara was when they opened up for Spiritualized on the Pure Phase tour in 1995. They were great - wish I talked with Ed more at the merch table.

THAT must have been it -- this was at the Whiskey? I remember attending a promo dinner beforehand...

John D. Strohm (Blake Babies etc, now running Rounder Records) knew Ed for decades -- hell of a remembrance:
More memories as well from a longtime friend/collaborator, Nick Tangborn.
