I've been searching for this since it came out and it was well worth the wait. Some albums like this appear with bonus tracks which are simply songs which weren't quite good enough for the album, or are interesting re-workings of old tracks and to be honest, these are. However the total uniqueness of this album, right down the (sometimes glaring) typos which you can only get on an import like this. My CD itself is stamped "The Colour Fields" for instance. If all the other copies out there don't have this then my copy is for sale for £10 million!!
Of course my reason for buying this was to hear the original work of genius that this is. I was lucky enough to see them play in Newcastle once, the set started with Terry throwing his lighted tab end into his adoring fans before they broke into a blistering rendition of David Byrne's "Memories Can't Wait". SUPERB!!!

My original, long since worn out and scratched, vinyl copy of this release still counts as one of my most treasured possessions. I had been a fan of Terry Hall from his days with The Specials and The Fun Boy 3, but had somehow missed the first two singles released in 1984 by his new band the Colour Field when I first heard them. A few hours listening to a tape of the first two singles on a boat in Maidstone, England soon had me hooked.
I immediately caught up with what I'd missed so far and bought the next single (the one big hit) Thinking Of You as soon as it came out. The next single, Castles In The Air did not do so well in the charts, but was a beautiful statement of the direction that Terry Hall intended to take his musical career. Clearly, Terry was now interested in song writing, and was intent on dropping his punk and 2Tone background in favour of following the path trod by the likes of Scott Walker and Andy Williams, using melody, harmony and lush string arrangements to get his songs across.
The rest as they say is history. Fourteen years down the line I still love every minute of this fantastic album, but regret the fact that some of the tracks have not appeared on CD yet. Hopefully this release will finally put that right.
The album gave Terry the vehicle to really start to express himself in his song writing, getting down to the real nitty gritty of life. The songs are largely about love, or, more specifically, failures in love and show a real understanding of the subject matter. There is still space for the political views expected of the former Special, with Cruel Circus making a valid attack on the mis-treatment of animals and Faint Hearts challenging the politicians for talking too much whilst doing too little.

It is not often you see so many 5 stars for an album, buy it and you will totally agree.

Like others, I heard this when I was a kiddo and today it still sounds as fresh as a daisy.

This really is timeless pop with songs both your Grandma and punk cousin will find acceptable. It is hard to say which singles are the best because there really isn't a bad track on it, but my own personal favourite is 'Sorry'.

I know this is a lot of money, but I promise that it is a worth while investment. I don't know if Terry Hall is making any money from this Asian release, but in my opinion he should be given a knighthood. THE BEST ALBUM OF THE 80's.

Bought it when it came out in America in 1985. Still have the vinyl. I'm thrilled to be owning it and envy the Terry Hall fans out there who will be listening to this for the first time. It's as magical as its cover is colorful and beautiful. Every depth of the pop spectrum is explored. If they include the Windmills of Your Mind cover, you're in store for even more fun. Folks, put your headphones on and kick your feet up...you're going for a ride that will linger with you even when you're miles from your stereo. This music not only withstands countless repeated listenings--its melodies will form a cloud around your head and not let go. In the Brit pop hall of fame, this is entry number 1

Format: Audio CD
Terry Hall split up The Specials in 1981 taking Neville Staples and Lynval Golding with him to form Fun Boy Three. By 1983 he had again become restless and split up FB3 with Toby Lyons from their touring band and forming The Colour Field with the like minded Karl Shale. Due to Terry's pedigree expectations where high for the new group and I remember spending an evening listening to the Janice Long Radio One show awaiting the premiere of their debut single also called `The Colour Field'.

Second single `Take' is included on this album and it is no doubt one of Terry Hall's greatest songs, that it failed to make the top forty beggars belief. Follow up `Thinking of You' again showcases Hall's spot on song writing and this time the song went top twenty with a momentum carrying this album into the charts. The next song taken from the album `Castles in the Air' again failed to chart despite a similar approach to `Thinking of You'.

The song writing and arrangements of the remainder of the album perhaps do not rise to the dizzy heights of it's 45's but it is a satisfying collection of indie pop gems. That this album is currently out of print is criminal.
