In London from early 1971, the group played the UK pub circuit, initially with little success but their popularity slowly grew and they supported Slade and the Moody Blues on their tours. In 1974, however, the Meteors fell apart, leaving Merritt and Stewie Speer (drums) to recruit John Gourd on guitar, slide guitar and piano; Howard Deniz on bass and Barry Duggan on sax and flute. This line-up was signed by US-based Arista Records for their newly established UK label and released A Little Easier with the title single A Little Easier in 1975. Slippin’ Away was their second single from the album and captured the attention of radio listeners back home in Australia and New Zealand, reaching #2 in Australia and #5 in New Zealand.
