Product Description

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deceptively Splendid 6 Feb 2006
By Jimbo VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
This was The Colour Field's second and unfortunately final album. Marred by an acrimonious split in the band (Toby Lyons left during the recording of the album) the album was released in 1987 and I was fortunate enough to buy the album at the time, and to see the remainder of the band (Raquel Welch's band I am led to believe) live in Manchester just after the release of this. Ten splendid tunes including the sublime 'Miss Texas 1967', the poignant 'Goodbye Sun Valley' and the brilliant 'Confession'. Give this album a try - Terry Hall is one of the best singer/songwriters of the last twenty odd years. Buy It!

5.0 out of 5 stars Re issued: A Brilliant Underrated Classic 16 April 2010
Format:Audio CD
A Brilliant Underrated Classic
I have had the original cassette version of this since 1987.
It's great to finally get it on CD.
It has been re mastered and initially it seemed flat in comparison and had lost whatever made it almost addictive to listen to, but adjusting the treble way up and the bass up a bit brought out the lost soul of the original.
It's like finding your best friend again and had been playing in the car on just about every trip.

By C. Cole

Just love this album, its doesnt have any weak tracks. Terry Halls Lyrics are just superb. I first heard this on Vinyl, many laters later. It still feels great.
Sadness, that they didnt release more tunes
