Jackie Blue’s “Behind Me” CD was written musically so that each song stands on it’s own—A song for every day or mood. Lyrically, each of our songs reflects personal and political themes—From the story of a classic “lady of the night” in “Detroit Queen,” to a celebration of our singer’s young son in “G” (written for Gabriel), to the need to use the power of the media to help the poor and downtrodden in “Channel 5.” We even wrote the “I.B. Waltz, Virginia” as a tongue-in-cheek country song for some of our southern friends (you know who you are).
The actual recording was done in our home studio using computer-based digital recording and editing equipment. The band did everything from writing, playing and singing, to engineering, mixing, mastering, and producing our CD. Start to finish, Behind Me is a CD by Jackie Blue. The performances capture a snapshot of our time together in late 2000 and early 2001.
