The Unmistakeable Sound of Independence since 1978 | Call to order: +44 (0)20 8996 3120
• Despite the best efforts of RCA to promote them as the British Monkees, a tie-in with Gerry Anderson’s cult TV show Captain Scarlet and numerous high-quality singles, somehow London band THE SPECTRUM failed to achieve the same level of success in the UK as they did in mainland Europe.
• A 2CD set, this first-ever official anthology of their career features all of their singles, the 1970 UK LP The Light Is Dark Enough, their contribution to the soundtrack of the little-known 1968 film The Bliss Of Mrs Blossom, their unissued-at-the-time theme tune for Captain Scarlet and, perhaps most notably of all, recordings that have only previously been released on their insanely rare and largely-unknown 1969 Venezuelan-only album.
• With the addition of their obscure 1965 debut single for EMI and a 1964 album that they cut (as Group Five) for the French market, All The Colours Of The Spectrum is the definitive document of a fascinating but hitherto little-documented band.
• It features a 16 page booklet with some priceless period photos and memorabilia as well as the Spectrum story from the cradle to the grave, with reminiscences from founder member Tony Atkins.
