In case you didn't already know, Betty Blue was one of John Stabb's post-Government Issue bands, existing from around the mid-to-late 90's. Unlike The Factory Incident-- Stabb's most recent band, who were more post-punk/Mission of Burma styled-- Betty Blue's sound compares pretty favorably to J.Robbins/Pete Moffett-era Government Issue, with the same biting Stabb lyrics ("oh to be a famous major label star... just another flash in the pan" --"Seen Us Envy"), the one obvious exception being the lack of Tom Lyle's epic guitar playing.
Still, this is a pretty good CD (especially if you're a fan of Government Issue), as you can tell by checking out the three tracks I'm posting here. I can't remember exactly how I bought this, though I do remember trading letters with Stabb when it first came out, after I saw the address listed on the insert and sent along some GI photos that I had taken back in the 80's. I'm pretty sure this CD is the only thing that Betty Blue ever released, other than a compilation track or two, and oddly enough it seems to have disappeared-- meaning you can't find it listed anywhere on places like Gemm and Music Stack, or even on Amazon, where you can usually find a hundred 98-cent copies of every 90's "alternative" CD ever made.
One thing I did manage to find was a cover by Betty Blue, recorded live, of Naked Raygun's "Treason", which you can download here. Other than that, for perhaps the one and only time, here's Betty Blue.
