Description

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.Promo copies will be sent to numerous Rock and Country publications as well many online music blogs.
