The Blue Room (album)


The Blue Room is the title of the published in 2000, second and so far last studio album by the American hard rock band Union.


Union had released the self-titled debut CD and the live album Live in the Galaxy in quick succession in 1999. The end of 1999 the group took in the A & M Recording Studios on the second studio album, which was released in February 2000.

All tracks on the album were written by singer John Corabi, guitarist Bruce Kulick, the producer Bob Marlette and bassist of the group, Jamie Hunting. The band decided not completely sure outsiders to participate in the songwriting. Kulick sang the title Dear Friend, whom he had dedicated to the late Kiss drummer Eric Carr. Although the song Hypnotized suggests that Corabi, who in 1994 was the singer of Motley Crue, was inspired by one created at this time with the participation of the same title to this song. However, the two songs are so different that this assumption can be excluded.
