Garage bands were lucky if they recorded a single or two and the few that made LPs often stretched their talents (and the listener's patience) to breaking point; I've certainly had my fingers burnt buying CDs by The Litter, The Shadows of Knight, The Eyes etc which only serve to prove that lightning doesn't strike twice. The Lollipop Shoppe have even further to fall as their blistering 45 'You Must Be A Witch' is a garage grail and one of the top 10 highlights (from 118 tracks) of the definitive 'Nuggets 1' boxset, but I'm relieved to say it wasn't a fluke. 1968's 'Just Colour' was recorded in only one day but despite its demo quality it contains enough flashes of brilliance to stand alongside the single. The wild fuzz guitar leads are still in evidence but the sound owes as much to Love and Dylan as to R&B or acid rock and slower songs such as the anguished 'Don't Close The Door On Me' or the 'Like A Rolling Stone'-alike 'It Ain't How Long' are some of the LP's most effective tracks . If you like The Chocolate Watchband's or The Standells' more pastoral moments then 'Just Colour' is well worth investigating.
