History

Blue Sky Records was started by Steve Paul in 1973. The executive vice president of the specialty label, promoted and distributed by Columbia Records, was Rick Dobbis. Dobbis later became the president of Sony Music International and senior vice-president at Arista Records.[1] Through the production activities of Johnny Winter, the label was instrumental in reviving the career of Muddy Waters. In 1983, when Winter departed from the label, the label largely ceased operations & was folded into Columbia.
