A subsidiary of CBS. Blue Sky was the record division of Steve Paul's management company of the same name; it seems to gone in mainly for Blues-tinged Rock such as that of Johnny Winter and Rick Derringer. It helped revive the career of legendary bluesman Muddy Waters, but its only Singles Chart successes in Britain were a couple of Disco singles by Dan Hartman, 'Instant Replay' (SKY-6706; 1978), and 'This Is It' (SKY-6999; 1979). Blue Sky's singles shared a numerical series with those of CBS, Epic and the rest of the group's labels, though they had their own SKY prefix.  Reportedly the label started life in 1971 in the States; it made its debut in the UK four years later, its products appearing on Epic in the intervening period. Blue Sky seems to have ground to a halt in 1980, as far as the United Kingdom is concerned. Two different label designs were used: an early black one to the end of 1976, and a blue one from 1978 on - it appears that no singles were issued in 1977. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
