Terry Hall formed The Colourfield in 1983 with ex-Swinging Cats member Toby Lyons and bassist Karl Shale and released their debut album, Virgins And Philistines in 1985. Deception , their long awaited follow up album, was released to mixed reviews in 1987. The album, produced by Sire Records founder Richard Gottehrer in New York, revealed a different direction to their debut. Shale had departed before the exhaustive recording sessions, during which they lost another founding member, Tony Lyons. The album was finished with the help of Roland Orzabal from Tears For Fears and Hollywood actress Raquel Welch s backing band. The album included two cover versions, both released as singles. The first Running Away , a Sly Stone song, was remixed by Arthur Baker to generate dance floor interest. The second, She (made famous by The Monkees) featured a duet with the emerging talent of Sinead O Connor amongst its B sides. No further singles were released in the UK. This long overdue reissue has five bonus tracks from singles including their sole release of 1986, Things Could Be Beautiful , Hall s first recorded collaboration with Ian Broudie of The Lightning Seeds. Last year, Terry reformed with his old band mates for a 30th Anniversary Tour as The Specials. The shows have been and critical and commercial success This, along with the recent book on The Specials You re Wondering Now and Cherry Red s reissue of the Fun Boy Three s debut album will generate interest in Terry s career.
