Blue Rock is the third and final album released by The Cross. Like Mad, Bad and Dangerous to Know, Blue Rock is a straight rock album which is currently out of print and has become a hard-to-find item.[citation needed] Spike Edney contributed a lot more to the record, writing or co-writing seven of the ten tracks of the album.

Because of the failure of their previous albums, Blue Rock was only released in Germany, Japan, Italy (vinyl only) and France (cassette only).[2] Blue Rock, too, failed to sell many copies. This contributed to the disbanding of The Cross two years later.[citation needed]
