In the early 1980s, critics recognized Cold Blue as a label with a unique focus. (more about the label)

". . . an invaluable resource for what might be called part of the new 'California School' . . . a label with a particular viewpoint and consummate good taste." — Joan LaBarbara, High Fidelity/Musical America

". . . the label defines a certain 'Southern California sound,' uncluttered, evocative and unusual, with a wistful emotional edge." — Jonathan Gold, L.A. Weekly

"Cold Blue could be to the '80s what the Rounder, Blue Note and Chess labels were to other times and places. . . . some of the music is simply superb." — Marina LaPalma, High Performance

Some of the vinyl Cold Blues—10-inch eps and 12-inch lps—are still available in limited quantities.
