For fans of over-orchestrated Anglophile pop-psych, it doesn't get much better than this. Hailing from Chico, California (and not to be confused with the group of the same name on Dot Records) Colours sprang from the loins of 60s punk legends the Boy Blues in 1967 and crafted an albums worth of quirky, baroque-infused material, laden with luscious harmonies, tantalizing textures and an intriguing lyrical bent. The band journeyed to LA in 1968 and recorded an unissued album For Johnny Rivers Soul City label, produced by Armin Steiner with arrangements by Marty Paich. Comparisons to the Bee Gees 'Odessa', Love's 'Forever Changes' or the Beach Boys' 'Smile' only partly describe the rich sonic tapestry Colours wove. [http://www.clear-spot.nl]
