Band In Blue


Duke jupiter's 3rd album (1980) with Mercury Records, is named after a song on the album: a song about a band that's burned out from the road, but has to keep rockin' anyway. The music was a mirror of where the band was at the time. This project was recorded In NYC and produced by Steve Katz, the guitarist for Blood Sweat and Tears. When Duke contracted Katz to produce the project he was a vice president at Mercury Records: the band felt he was a good choice, politically speaking. But—a few days into the recording session we found out he'd been fired by Mercury Records! Ouch!
