Description

'"Misty Blue"' is a song written by Bob Montgomery in 1966 which has become a hit in the pop, C&W and soul fields through various versions, the most successful being the 1976 pop/soul hit by Dorothy Moore.

In 1973 Dorothy Moore recorded "Misty Blue" at Malaco Records in Jackson, Mississippi cutting her vocal in a single take: Malaco owner Tommy Couch was familiar with the song via the Joe Simon version. Malaco, then a production company, were unable to successfully shop Moore's recording of "Misty Blue" to a label, and in November 1975 the cash-strapped Malaco used the last of its resources to press Moore's "Misty Blue" and release it on the Malaco label. Henry Stone through his TK Productions picked the single up for national distribution and began promoting it heavily using his own independent network.

After receiving its initial airplay in Chicago and Washington DC, Moore's single broke in the southern states in April 1976 and three months later it was nominated for a Grammy Award. In 1976 the single reached number 2 on the R&B chart and 3 on the Billboard Hot 100, as well as number 14 on the Adult Contemporary chart. Billboard ranked it as the No. 19 song for 1976.

"Misty Blue" was also a UK hit, reaching number 5 there on the chart dated for the week of 8 August 1976. Moore's single also achieved hit status in Australia (5), Canada (4), New Zealand (4), South Africa (11) and also Brazil, ranking at number 19 on Brazil's Top 100 singles of 1976, while a re-release would rank at 56 on Brazil's Top 100 singles of 1983. Moore's version is included on the soundtrack of the 1996 movie Phenomenon and also the 2008 movie Made of Honor.

In 2014 Dorothy Moore's "Misty Blue" had been on the iTunes blues top ten charts in up to nine countries for the last three years. When first released, her "Misty Blue" was on the B-side
