Recording of "Dubuque Blues"

DUBUQUE BLUES. In 1967 “The Association,” one of the 1960s most popular bands, performed in the Locust Street Parking Ramp at a teen dance.

Jules Alexander, a member of the band, wrote the tune that was released on an album in 1969. The song sold well locally, but never achieved nationwide popularity.
