KBC Band is KBC Band's only album, featuring Paul Kantner, Marty Balin, and Jack Casady from Jefferson Airplane. The single "It's Not You, It's Not Me" was released shortly before the album's release.

When originally released, the album cover was printed on both the outside and inside. In one vinyl release, the inside jacket of the album had a picture of a road with a car traveling on it with sign in the distance that said: "Life is a test. Had this been a real life, you would have been told where to go and what to do."

Outtakes were included on the Marty Balin albums Balince and Nothin' 2 Lose: The Lost Studio Recordings.
