Blue Horizon Records
NO LINK AVAILABLE
Mike Vernon, co-founder of Blue Horizon Records, was an innovator and focal point of the 1960's British blues invasion, which spawned John Mayall's Blues Breakers, Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac, Ten years After, and Savoy Brown. As a staff producer at Decca Records UK, he discovered and produced many of the aforementioned bands. When Peter Green, John McVie, and Mick Fleetwood left John Mayall's Blues Breakers, Vernon put together Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac and Blue Horizon Records were born. Although it was only active for a few years, Blue Horizon left an indelible mark not only on blues, but on pop music as well. The label's current releases include re-issues of expanded editions of late '60s and early '70s recordings by Fleetwood Mac, Chicken Shack, Christine McVie, Duster Bennett, Mississippi Joe Callicut, Furry Lewis, Eddie Boyd, Otis Spann, Bukka White, Johnny Young, Johnny Shines, Curtis Jones, Champion Jack Dupree, and others. The label is also looking to sign and record new artists to help keep the blues alive.
